Hoosac Valley Boys Rally Past Lee
CHESHIRE, Mass. -- Carson Meczywor scored 23 points Wednesday to lead the Hoosac Valley boys basketball team to a 58-47, come-from-behind win over Lee.
The Wildcats jumped out to a 13-point lead in the second quarter, but freshman Joey McGovern sparked a rally that spanned the second and third quarters.
Meczywor ended up scoring 19 of his 23 points in the second half to help the Hurricanes take control.
McGovern finished with a career-high 17.
Hoosac Valley outscored the Wildcats by a margin of 11-1 at the free throw line.
"The difference in the game is it’s hard to win when the other team goes to the foul line 19 times in the fouls are 15 to 5," Lee coach Eric Cardinal said. "We have to play more disciplined basketball.
"I was really proud of the effort boys put forth tonight. For as irregular of a season as we’re having, I'm just super proud of the effort this team is playing."
Lee got 17 points from Evan Heath and 13 from Evan Trombley.
The Wildcats (1-3) go to Mount Greylock on Saturday.
Hoosac Valley (10-2) hosts Monument Mountain on Friday.
