Bellmont took advantage of a pair of breaks, driving for scores after the Norwell miscues to carve out a key 14-6 NHC victory over the Knights Friday night at Bob Worthman Stadium, improving to 3-1 overall with three tough loop contests looming.
The game somehow dodged the storm bullets and was over by 9 p.m., seconds before a huge bolt of lightening cut open the skies.
"We did the things we needed to do to win," stated Bellmont's second-year head coach Larry Getts.
Candido V. Castro Jr., 84, of Fort Wayne, died Thursday.

Summer may be nearing an end, but lawns still need to be cut and trash needs to be cleared out of yards in the town of Monroe, according to the town council.
During Thursday night's meeting, President Al Lehman said he wants to remind the residents that there is a town ordinance mandating residents keep their lawns cut and property free of trash. Lehman said the town is well kept, for the most part, but there has been an ongoing issue with "a few houses that just can't seem to get it done."
Bellmont tennis reached a few firsts under coach Joe Selking on Thursday night when they hosted NHC-rival Norwell.
First and foremost, the Braves won the match, 3-2, marking the first time that Bellmont has defeated the Knights in tennis. Another big mark, however, was the Braves' 9-1 record, the best start in Selking's tenure at Bellmont.
The Braves picked up their three key wins from David Baker at number two singles, Mason Selking at three, and Logan Baker/Drake Reidenbach at number two doubles.
