Belmont players proved to be a valuable addition to the Gilford football program on Monday. The Junior Varsity Gilford Golden Eagles won their first game in years in a 34-0 victory home against Franklin. The offense did most of its damage on the ground courtesy of strong running by Jackson Spooner and Marc Forgione. Dalton Orneales had a strong performance at Quarterback with one touchdown through the air to wideout Tanner Woods and one run on the ground. The defense was a result of great team effort led by outstanding tackling from Jonathon Custodia and Dylan Gansert. Gilford will look to build on the strong start next Monday at Somersworth.
