Watching Belmont High's boys lacrosse in the second half of their match with Arlington Catholic at Harris Field on Thursday, May 3, was like witnessing a person in quicksand: the harder they try, the deeper they sink.
After taking a well-earned lead into half time, the Marauders' saw AC go on a 10-5 run in the second 24 minutes to force overtime where, in the second extra session, Sean Donovan scored his first of the game to give the Cougars (6-3) their sixth win of the season.
For Belmont, the loss continues their winless season with eight losses, four coming by a single goal including two in overtime.
The Marauders were led by senior sniper Ben Mosca who placed six shots (of 13 taken) into the back of the net. Hockey standouts Brian Gnamolini and Pat Quinn along with Matt Madden scored a pair each.
