Boys’ Lacrosse Evens Record with Win

After opening their season with a home loss against Shady Hill (8-3), the boys’ lacrosse team flipped the script on the road against Beaver this week. Jacob Gregor’s goal on the opening face-off gave Belmont Day a lead for the first time this season and the Blue & Gold didn’t look back. With steady offensive pressure throughout the game, Belmont Day was able to maintain a 2-3 goal lead for all four quarters and finished with an impressive 11-8 win. Cole Lemack-Bremen and Theo von Gottberg joined Gregor with multiple goals on the afternoon, and sixth grade newcomer Henry Buckley-Jones was impressive on both ends of the field.
