The Boothbay football team lost to Class C Belfast, 26-18, Sept. 7 at Sherman Field. Boothbay trailed 26-12 in the second half before mounting a comeback. Trailing  26-18 with one minute 45 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, the Seahawks were on the seven yard line driving for an apparent game-tying score, but a fumbled exchange from center dashed the rally.

Boothbay is 0-2. Belfast improves to 1-1. Boothbay’s next game is at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15 with a road contest versus Telstar.
