Adam Legere started a comeback by making the Bucs’ first five points, including a deep shot from the corner. Matt Kazangian followed up with two three-point plays to pull the Bucs to a within 9 points of the lead by half-time.
The second half featured Lexington’s outside shooting, and Bedford’s leading rebounder Dylan DiGangi. Dylan pulled the Bucs to within 5 points with a minute-and-a-half left to play.
