Belfast — The youthful Belfast football team hosted Morse of Bath on Friday, Sept. 29 in the hope of earning its first win with the second half of the season.

Ultimately, it was not to be for the Lions against the talented Shipbuilders who, behind the running of tailback Austin Baltazar, ran over, through and past the hosts on their way to a lopsided 56-14 victory.

Baltazar rushed for 221 yards on 13 carries and three touchdowns to lead Morse, which led 14-7 after the first quarter, increased that to 28-7 at halftime and 48-7 after three quarters.

Dylan Abbott was 7-of-17 under center for Belfast for 137 yards and two touchdowns, including passes to Chris Kelley (3 catches for 80 yards), Donovin Armstrong (20-yard catch) and Grey Dinsmore (3 catches for 37 yards, 2 touchdowns).

Isaak Cunningham rushed for 41 yards on 10 carries for Belfast.

Parker Onorato (3 rushes for 65 yards, 2 catches for 73 yards, 3 TDs), Tyreik Foster (8 rushes for 43 yards, 8-yard catch, TD), Sebastian Tibbetts (8 rushes for 43 yards), Dominic Dickinson (4 rushes for 26 yards) and Mason Savary (2 rushes for 17 yards, TD) also turned in notable offensive performances for the Shipbuilders.

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Class C North, Belfast (0-5, no points) is 11th (last), while Winslow (4-1, 70.0000 points) is first in the 11-team region. The top eight teams qualify for the playoffs.
