For the most part Saturday night, the Bellmont Squaws' gas tank was running fairly smooth on 87 octane.
Unfortunately for the Squaws, their opponents, the Norwell Knights were running full tilt on 93 octane and the Knights, now 14-1 on the year, polished off the Squaws, now 7-8, by a 72-51 count at the Teepee.
Bellmont charged out of the locker room and outscored visiting Van Wert 8-1 to start the third period, taking a 41-40 lead, but the unbeaten Cougars regrouped, found their offense and outscored the Braves 27-9 the rest of the way for a 67-50 win Saturday afternoon.
"They came to play a little bit and obviously shot it better than they did last night, and they were a little comfortable early," stated veteran Van Wert David Froelich.
