In a late November non-conference basketball game, the Taconic Hills Titans hosted the New Lebanon Tigers. The game was pretty much even after the first quarter of play. The Titans had a two-point lead after one quarter, with a score of 14-12. The Titans did find their grove in the second quarter, outscoring the Tigers 20 to 10 to take a 12 point lead into the half, up 34-22.


Both teams came out of the halftime shooting the ball somewhat cold. After two three pointers from Kolby Clegg early in the third, the Titans didn’t score for the rest of that quarter. Same goes for the Tigers who only scored seven points.


Entering the final quarter, both teams managed to shoot the ball better as the Titans scored 17 points in the quarter, while the Tigers scored 14 points in the quarter. But that wasn’t enough for the Tigers as they fell to the Titans 57-43.


The leading scorer for the Titans was Kolby Clegg, who had 13 of his game high 25 points in the first half. Clegg hit four three pointers in the game. After asking how he felt out there scoring twenty-five points, he said  


“To be honest I didn’t even know I had that much. Everything was clicking and our big's did a fantastic job rebounding tonight. Also, our whole bench and defense stepped up strong. It felt good playing as a team with our major scorer gone which we need to do this every game.”


Devon Charron added 15 points for the Titans in the win.


Clayton Erickson led New Lebanon with 18 points.


New Lebanon will play Berlin Tuesday December fourth and Taconic Hills will play Greenville at home Friday November 30th.
