Triskaidekaphobia! Boys' Lacrosse takes down Number 13 Reading for first win
This season has been one of continuing frustration for the Belmont High School Boys' Lacrosse team, going winless while losing four games by a single goal.
And on Tuesday, the Marauders was hosting the 13-win Reading High School, ranked 13th in the state, which beat Belmont, 13-3, earlier in the year.
But it turned out that all those thirteens came back to haunt Reading yesterday as Marauders forward Ben Mosca scored five goals and Belmont's long-suffering defense stood up for the game's entire 48 minutes to shot down the Rockets, 9-8.
