Bulldogs come out firing against Renegades

LACONIA — Belmont-Gilford scored early and often to take down Moultonborough-Inter-Lakes 6-0 Saturday evening. The Bulldogs built a three goal lead before the Renegades recorded their first shot on goal. "This was a team win," coach Jay Londer said. "We came out and made Moultonborough-Inter-Lakes play at our pace and that was the plan."

The first goal came 1:33 into the first period, scored by Ethan Becker. Becker picked up the rebound from Powell Wilson's shot and buried the puck into the corner of the net. Just over a minute later B-G doubled the lead on a Jamie Gill tally. Daryll Cahill scored the third goal of the period.

B-G had 13 players record a point in the shutout. Caled Drouin scored the fourth and fifth goal. Sarah Lachapelle capped the scoring in the third period on the Bulldogs' only powerplay. Nate Bowler, Jason Taylor, Dylan Treamer, Will Mahoney, Kris Shepard, and Brogan Hurst (2) all had assists. Calvin Davis and Bailey Defosie combined for 17 saves.

Early turnovers spell defeat for Laconia

LACONIA — The Sachems (5-4) fell behind early and could not dig themselves out losing to Franklin 42-40. The Sachems had trouble handling the ball, turning it over on the first four possessions of the game. The Golden Tornadoes (5-4) took advantage scoring on all four turnovers to jump out to an 8-0 lead. " I am proud of the way we played," said Laconia coach Jeff Greeley, adding, "We can't spot a team an eight point lead and expect to win. I feel we outplayed them the last 28 minutes, but it's hard chasing points."

The Golden Tornadoes held at least a five point lead for all but the final minute and a half. Laconia shortened the lead to three when freshman Helen Tautkus (6 points) collected the defensive rebound and drove the length of the court, drawing a foul on the layup. Tautkus converted both free throws. "These are the games that make me lose my hair," said Franklin coach J.J. Winters. "We came out strong and had the easy buckets early. Luckily we didn't give it away in the end." Franklin in-bounded the ball with ten seconds remaining in the game. An errant pass resulted in a steal from Cali Swormstedt, who attempted a half court pass to Kailey Nute at the baseline, only to see the ball sail over her head, out of bounds. Franklin inbounded with 5.6 seconds left and again the ball was stolen by Swormstedt. This time Swormstedt was tied up and the buzzer sounded, ending the game.

Laconia's Natalie Compton had a game high 18 points. Senior Katrina Styles led the Golden Tornadoes with 17 points. Franklin has won both matches against Laconia by a total of three points. The Sachems are back in action on Friday night when they host Newfound.
