On the first day of March, it was the warriors that came in like a lion.
Belmont High School Boy's Basketball's run in the Division 2 North tournament was "one-and-done" as the Marauders fell to Middlesex League rivals, the Wakefield High School Warriors, 73-63, Thursday night, March 1.
The host Warriors avenged a 10-point Christmas-time home loss to Belmont, 54-44, with a double digit win on the snowy night in March.
Belmont ends the season 11-10 and missed out on a chance to meet neighbors Arlington High School in the quarterfinals, after the Spy Ponders upset New Mission High School of Boston, 70-69 in overtime.
The loss is also the last time seniors Sam Musler, Manny Cabral, John Craig, Jacob Deese, Greg Guebenlian, Angel Tejada, Jack Ramsey, Tyaishawn Abdul-Aziz and John Dillon will play in a Marauder hoops uniform.
