Team Effort Lifts Varsity Hoops Over Charles River

The boys’ varsity basketball team improved to 1-1 on the season with a hard-fought win over Charles River this week. After taking a six-point lead into the half, the Blue & Gold withstood the visitors’ second half run and held on for a three-point win. As time ticked down, the home team put the ball in Owen Finnerty’s hands and the eighth grade co-captain didn’t disappoint. He netted 4 points within the final minute to seal the deal. Fellow co-captain Owen Khanna also finished strong with nine second half points of his own. Also providing a spark for Belmont Day was Miles Sandoski who was active on both ends of the floor throughout the entire game.
