YORKTOWN — "Even though it's early in the season, we were hoping to get them," stated Bellmont coach Brent Faurote, whose Braves have avenged regular-season losses to Yorktown in two of the last three regional showdowns in February.
Bellmont coach John Baker picked up the first win of his career in front of a home crowd at the Teepee on Saturday night as his Braves handled the Woodlan Warriors, 58-44.
The Braves jumped out to a 5-0 start at the beginning of the first quarter, but looked a bit shaky the rest of the frame as they came back to the bench down 12-11 after one.
Coach Baker would have none of it. "This is not Bellmont basketball!" he hollered in the huddle, and his players got the message.
FORT WAYNE — Twenty-one points was as close as any squad came to matching South Adams in the season opening duals at Homestead Saturday as the Starfires easily took the title for the day with a perfect 5-0 slate.
