Seymour’s Electric Touchdown Seals Win

Ahead by just one score late in the second half, Belmont Day’s eighth grade speedster Evan Seymour turned a short reception into the game-sealing touchdown by outrunning the entire Rashi defense. It was Seymour’s second touchdown of the game and provided an electric finish to an exciting 26-12 win for the home team. Eighth grade classmates Owen Finnerty (touchdown) and Theo Wallach (two interceptions) also joined in on the action, while newcomer Jake Walsh provided some solid defensive plays for the Blue & Gold.
