Athletics Update: Girls’ Soccer Heads into Friday Night Lights with Big Win

With three one-goal losses on the season, girls’ soccer’s 2-4 record doesn’t tell the full story of the team’s fall campaign. A talented squad led by a handful of eighth grade standouts, the team has been competitive in every game they’ve played and is primed for a big performance at Friday Night Lights. This past week, the team split a pair of games against Shady Hill (L 4-2) and Nashoba Brooks (W 3-2). Their win was highlighted by strong goalie play from Ana McEleney and Maddie Cutie who split time in net. Seventh grade classmates Perin Fine and McKenna Daley also had strong games for Belmont Day, stepping up on D and stifling the opposition’s attack. The Blue & Gold will need more of the same tonight as they take on a talented Meadowbrook team and will look to flip the script on the friendly rivalry. Hope to see you (and hear you) there!

  • The varsity football team split their week with a big win over Shady Hill (29-13) followed by a disappointing loss to Rashi (26-14). Matthieu Small turned in a pair of strong performances on D, while Braiden Dargon is catching everything thrown his way.
  • DCD took a pair of games from Belmont Day this week as JV soccer and JV football ended up on the wrong side of the score. Julia Street played some great defense for soccer and Kesariya Nallari-Jhala had a big first down catch for football.
  • Asher Sutton highlighted a handful of amazing runs by eighth grade athletes by besting his PR by 36 seconds this week during cross country’s final home meet of the season against Shady Hill. Yara Ibrahim also recorded a PR. The team travels to states next weekend!
  • The field hockey team leaned on the eighth grade leadership of Eliza Kuechle, Bella Lightbody, and Anisah Jordan this week during their games against Shady Hill (W 3-0) and Fay (L 4-1). The trio carried the play in both contests and did a great job involving their teammates.
  • The boys’ soccer team dropped a pair of games to Shady Hill (1-0) and Fenn (5-1) this week. Eike Kiecza was dominant in net on Monday and scored a highlight reel header on Thursday. The team will really need to turn things around to be competitive at Friday Night Lights.
