• mal100Smith gets 100th career goal

    Bellefonte Area High School senior and fourth-year varsity soccer player Mal Smith hit a milestone on Sept. 11 by scoring her 100th career goal as part of the team -- making her the school's all-time leading scorer. The forward went into the game against Tyrone with 98 goals and scored Bellefonte's first two goals of the game in the second half. Smith also had two assists on the day. The third and game-tying goal came from sophomore Kerri Shutika.

    The Red Raiders beat the Golden Eagles in sudden-death overtime, 4-3. The winning goal was scored by senior Mack Hubbs, who also assisted Smith's second goal.

    Smith was publicly honored Sept. 17 before the home game against Clearfield, where she notched two more goals putting her season total to 12.
