Belmont Edges Hollis-Brookline 9-7 to remain undefeated

Timely goaltending by Taylor Becker and a balanced scoring attack led the Belmont High School Girl's Lacrosse Team to a 9-7 win over visiting Hollis-Brookline.
Belmont controlled the field for most of the first half, scoring the first two goals of the game. Hollis-Brookline was able to chip away at the lead but Belmont stayed on top. Belmont held a slim 4-3 lead heading into the halftime break.
Hollis-Brookline tied the game at 4 early in the second half, then Belmont took control. Taylor Becker's outstanding netminding thwarted all attempts by the visitors to take control of the game and the offense provided the firepower to outscore the visitors 5-3 throughout the remainder of the game to come away with a 9-7 win and improve their record to 5-0-1 on the season.
Becker's seven saves combined with three goals and an assist by Allivia Burbank, two goals each by Katherine Jeas and Emily Ennis, single tallies by Kaitlyn Berry and Anna Scott and an assist by Jen Hamilton kept the Lady Red Raiders undefeated.
