Eagles slip past Proctor

PROCTOR — Arlington's Tess Belnap scored twice and Haley Mattison added the third as the Eagles came back to beat Proctor, 3-1, and remain unbeaten in a girls soccer matchup.

Isabel Valerio scored for Proctor in the 10th minute to put Arlington behind for the first time this year, but Arlington tied the game five minutes later on Belnap's first goal, assisted by Xandria Hoyt. Belnap's second goal moments later gave the Eagles a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Shaana Staab allowed her first goal of the season in net, but still earned the win. Gracie Smith and Lilah Ward were cited for excellent defense on Proctor's strikers.

Arlington is 10-0 and is at West Rutland on Monday.
