Lee 3, Turners Falls 1
LEE — The Wildcats improved to 11-1 with a 25-23, 25-13, 22-25 and 25-13 win over the visiting Thunder.
Lizzy Brown had 15 kills and 11 digs in the win. Kylie Joyce added 18 kills and nine digs, Suriana Lee had 24 assists and Rachel Wendling provided 18 digs.
MCLA women 3, SUNY Cobleskill 2
NORTH ADAMS — Madeline Gibney's penalty kick with just over two minutes remaining lifted the Trailblazers (2-9-1) to the win.
MCLA had to battle out of two different deficits. Cetera Moore canceled out Cobleskill's opener — on a pass from Gibney — then Alyssa Porter tied the game up at 2-2 with just under 10 minutes to play.
Madison Breese made five saves to get the win.
The Drury defense stepped up big in its 28-13 win over Pathfinder last Friday, according to head coach Al Marceau.
Down 13-0 in the first quarter, the defense stiffened up from there to keep Pathfinder off the board.
Offensively, Dante Woodson rushed for 144 yards and three touchdowns, while Louis Guillotte had 70 yards and a score. The team did suffer six turnovers on offense — including three in the red zone — but the Blue Devils found a way to overcome it.
"I told the team we can't afford to have turnovers against the teams we will be facing from here on out," Marceau said in an email.
"I thought our line blocked excellently, led by Alan Marceau, Ryan Goss and Tim Brazeau," Al Marceau added. "They opened up huge holes the whole night, but we need to hang onto the ball."
Danny Cartmill had two interceptions to aid in the defensive effort, as well.
Drury is back in action on Saturday at home against Smith Vocational, with kickoff set for 1 p.m.
