Wolverines Fall to Lee Academy 80-61

Bridgton Academy traveled up to in-state prep rival Lee Academy on Saturday afternoon and lost 80-61. The Wolverines started the game falling behind by ten mid-way through the half but kept within striking distance at the break trailing 39-31. BA trimmed the deficit to four immediately to begin the second half but was never able to gain the lead in the game. The Wolverines made several efforts in the second half to tighten the game but were thwarted by missed opportunities, and timely shooting by the home squad.

Coach Lesure was disappointed with the way the second half played out in the contest. “I can manage the losing, I just don’t like the way we lost, especially after working hard enough to make it a game…But give Lee and Andrew (Coach P.) a lot of the credit….They have improved themselves, and I don’t see too many teams beating them in their gym...I know we haven’t a lot”.

The Wolverines have two games remaining in the regular season with a road game at Brewster Academy on Wednesday and a final home contest with Winchendon on Saturday afternoon.
