LEE — Midway through this season, the Lee football team found itself in a world of trouble. On the outside looking in at the postseason, the Wildcats sat at 1-3 after three one-possession losses in a row, all coming at home on John J. Consolati Field.

Through it all, though, the Wildcats never gave up, entering Friday night’s home finale against Belchertown with a chance to put a stranglehold on a playoff bid.

Lee did just that with a 35-6 victory over the Orioles on senior night, its third victory in a row to get back over .500 for the first time since after Lee’s first game of the season.

“This is a gutsy group,” Lee coach Keith Thomson said. “This team could have hung their head a little bit, but they stayed in the fight. These guys got a heck of a lot of heart and they get better every week.”
