NORTHPORT — With the Belfast and Mount View field hockey teams coming off early-season shutout losses, something had to give when the Waldo County high school athletic rivals squared off on Tuesday, Sept. 7 at Point Lookout.

The Lions (1-1) took out their frustrations on the young Mustangs (0-3) in a big way on the fast-rolling turf and got nine goals from five players — including four from Audra Faulkingham — to swing to a 9-0 win.

Faulkingham also assisted on two other scores, while Natalie Curry (goal), Grace Hall (2 goals, 2 assists), Breanna Shorey (goal, assist) and Sophia Taylor (goal) chipped in on offense for Belfast.

The Lions put a whopping 49 shots on goal against just one for the Mustangs and held a 12-1 advantage in penalty corners.

Madison Shorey made one save in the cage for Belfast, while Ella Sawyer made a number of sensational stops in goal for the Mustangs and turned away an impressive 33 Lion shots.
