The Lacrosse Team Sets Hopes High

The 2016 spring season of Belmont Hill Lacrosse is well underway. Having been crowned co-champions of the ISL last year with Governor’s Academy, the team looks to win this year’s ISL crown as the outright champion. The team is off to a fast start, currently sitting with a record of 5-0 behind captain Johnny Hincks. On a brisk Friday afternoon, the team picked up its first victory against Thayer Academy. Having been up by four goals at the beginning of the second half, the team’s lead disintegrated. However, hungry to start off the season with a win, tied at 6, Belmont Hill found themselves with on offense with 30 seconds remaining. After moving the ball around for about 20 seconds, Belmont began their final move. In a series of plays, Junior Zach Geddes fired off a shot with five seconds remaining and found the back of the net. Following an easy win against Roxbury Latin, the team was set to face Governor’s Academy in a battle between the reigning co-champions of the ISL. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, Belmont Hill took on this extremely talented Governor’s squad. Virtually trailing at all points of the game, spirits were nearly dashed. However, in epic fashion, the squad mounted an incredible comeback. Having been down by 5 goals for a long duration of the game, the comeback began in the second half. As the second half began, the score sat at 6-2. Belmont Hill closed out the game on a 7-2 run, finishing with a crucial 9-8 win that will have many future implications later in the season. Griffin Gustafsson was the game changer, as he potted home the ninth goal with only 33 seconds remaining. The team looks forward to big games against Nobles, Rivers, and St. Sebastian’s. Good luck to the Varsity Lacrosse team down the line.
