Athletics Update: Defense Holds in Final Minutes to Secure 2-1 Win for Field Hockey

The field hockey team evened their record at 1-1 with an exciting 2-1 win over Park in their home opener this week. Eighth grade co-captain Bella Lightbody netted both goals for the victors while classmate Anisah Jordan turned away an open breakaway with under two minutes to play. The team also received strong performances from Avery Schneider and Ilana Brauner. “Schneider was a rockstar on defense and shut down multiple attacks on goal,” said head coach Abbey Nyland. “Brauner facilitated multiple scoring chances and was instrumental in moving the ball up the field,” Nyland added. All in all, it was a great win for the home team and something they can build on heading into a showdown with Shore Country Day next week.

  • Sam Amaratunga paced the cross country team with an impressive third-place finish on the road against LCA, Fenn, and Nashoba Brooks this week. Gabriel Burd rounded out the scoring as the fifth Belmont Day runner with a time of 17:42.
  • Niamh O’Brien buried a 30-yard free-kick top corner to lead girls’ varsity soccer to a solid 2-0 win over Park this week. Classmates Perin Fine and Maddie Cutie controlled the defensive line and kept scoring chances to a minimum throughout the game.
  • The varsity football team battled Park to a 28-28 tie on the road this week. Zach Kromah powered the offense with multiple scores including an impressive coast-to-coast TD in the first half. Braiden Dargon chipped in with a highlight-reel catch and solid defense.
  • The boys’ soccer team was blanked by Park on the road this week. The team received strong performances from newcomers Daniel Peregudov (nice passing up top) and Louis Cantor (second-half shutout in net). The loss dropped the team to 0-2 on the season.
