INDIANAPOLIS — For the third straight year, Bellmont was represented on the North All-Stars at the annual Grange Insurance North-South Football All-Star game Friday night at North Central High School, but this was the first time in those three seasons that the North suffered a loss, losing 13-7 last night in front of 5,216 fans.
“They won the turnover battle. That was the difference,” stated former BHS standout Daniel Meyer, on the loss.
The Decatur Thunderbirds played in the second annual Don Osborn Willshire 10 and Under tournament this past weekend and swept all five games they played for the championship title.
In pool play games, the T-Birds blanked Patrick Henry of Ohio 9-0 on Friday, and on Saturday knocked off Rockford, Ohio 7-5 and Van Wert, Ohio 18-0. In the elimination round Saturday, Decatur fashioned a big 19-1 triumph over Van Wert and then whipped Patrick Henry again by a 12-2 count in the championship encounter.
