Group raising funds for creation of high school football team for Belmont athletes

Friends of Belmont Football (FOBF), a charitable organization, is currently raising funds toward its goal of making football a reality for Belmont High School student-athletes.

Any Belmont High School athlete who has played football in younger recreational leagues can't play in high school because Belmont doesn't have a team. Current Belmont 8th graders playing football in Gilford won a championship last year and currently have a record of 5 and 1 so far this year.

These kids have nowhere to play next year unless the school district can establish a co-operative team.

FOBF members are determined to raise funds to help Belmont establish that partnership with another school district and have a combined football team. To help make this happen, Friends of Belmont Football is reaching out to the community for help with fundraising efforts.

The Belmont Village Store is currently offering $.99 egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches through Nov.14. The store is donating 100% of proceeds from the sale of those sandwiches to FOBF.

Additionally, donations can be made online at: http://www.gofundme.com/4hn5wc, or checks made payable to The Friends of Belmont Football may be mailed to 552 Union Road in Belmont NH, 03220.

Sant Bani plays White Mountain School to a 2-2 tie

The White Mountain School hosted the Sant Bani soccer team in a hard-fought nail-biter on Saturday. Sant Bani found themselves quickly down 2-0 on back-to-back White Mountain goals in the 9th and 10th minutes by Chen Chen Zhou and Darvis Borges. Three minutes later, Sant Bani co-captain Harrison Evans got his team back to within a goal, scoring on an indirect kick deflected off a White Mountain defender.

Seven minutes into the second half Evans again found the back of the net, this time on a feed pass from fellow senior Caio Thielen. Both teams, playing with only three subs, were denied further chances with great goalkeeping and gutsy defense, each squad exhausted by the final whistle. Sant Bani will be logging some significant miles in the coming week, visiting Dublin School, Kimball Union Academy and Vermont Academy. Coach Todd Schongalla's advice to his team: "Get some rest and keep up with your homework."
