The Belfast football team hopes to end its season with a two-game win streak, and got off to a positive start Oct. 14 as the Lions traveled to Old Town to take on the host Coyotes in a Pine Tree Conference Class B game.

Conditions were far from ideal as both squads had to deal with pouring rain throughout the game, but the Lions persevered and pulled away with a 40-24 victory over the Coyotes, thanks to a 28-8 scoring difference in the second half.

The Lions and Coyotes played evenly through the first 24 minutes, but the visitors ran away with the game over the final 24 minutes thanks to four touchdowns from four different players.

Jake Campbell had a sensational game for Belfast (2-5), compiling 103 yards on 10 carries and also hauled in five catches for 85 yards and two touchdowns. Also thriving on the ground was Greg Clark, who eclipsed the century mark with 132 yards on just eight attempts and also had two scores.

Also picking up yardage on the ground were Zach Collier (42 yards on 16 carries), Travis Tufo (32 yards on 7 carries) and Mike McFadden (6 yards on a carry).

Quarterback Collier was 5-of-8 passing for 85 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, for the Lions.

For Old Town (2-5), Ethan Swedberg rushed for 145 yards on seven carries and two touchdowns, while Dan Rivers (101 yards on 18 carries), Jon Toole (52 rushes on 8 carries) and Bryan Guay (2 yards on a carry, touchdown) paced the offense.

The Lions outgained the Coyotes 407-297 in total yardage.

Belfast will wrap up the regular season on Friday, Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. when it hosts Camden Hills.
