Lee comes back to beat Turners Falls

The last time the Lee boys’ basketball team hosted a postseason game, most of the current Wildcats were in elementary school and Lee beat Turners Falls 55-41. Lee finished that postseason run with a loss at St. Joseph. Monday night, a familiar foe descended on Coach C Court and a former Crusader led the way to a quarterfinals berth for the Wildcats.

Lee advanced past Turners Falls in the opening round of the Western Mass. Division IV tournament, topping the Thunder 68-59 in a game they trailed by as many as 12 points in the first half.

In the first matchup between these teams on December 21, a game Turners Falls won 55-39 over the Wildcats, Lee could only muster 14 points in the second half, letting a halftime lead slip away. The same offensive deficiency struck the Wildcats early on against the Thunder.

Lee only made three baskets in the first quarter and struggled keeping the ball, giving Turners Falls ample opportunity on the other end. The Thunder responded, attacking a zone defense that coach Jason Bliss had installed this week in an attempt to foil the Turners Falls offense attack.

“We knew they were going to run on us like they did last time,” Bliss said. “I put in a 1-2-2 zone in for the first quarter and it wasn’t really working out for us.”
