    GARRETT — Bellmont's full-court press baffled the host Railroaders in the third period Wednesday and the result was a 22-5 run, setting up the 68-53 Braves' non-conference victory.
    "We talked at halftime how the first four minutes of the third quarter are the most important of the game," stated Garrett coach John Bodey.
    "We had cut a 12-point lead a couple of times down to six in that first half, but in those first four minutes we didn't come out ready, and Bellmont competed a little bit harder."
    Joe Baker socked in three treys and Payton Selking added two more as Bellmont stretched a 34-28 halftime lead to a 56-33 advantage, ending any hope Garrett had of making a run at the 2-2 Braves.
     "We get a three to start (the third period), they ran a set play and got a layup and Selking got two baskets early in that third period and we just didn't respond," concluded Bodey.
    Nick Fuelling led Bellmont with 16 points and Joe Baker added 14. Selking, still battling a sore back, hit five of six shots, including both of his treys, and scored 12 points.
    "I think we probably contributed to that four minutes. We did a nice job defensively and that turned into points for us," noted Bellmont coach Larry Patterson.
    "We also got some real good looks. We've always impressed on our kids to get the ball inside first, if we can score in there, great, if not the kick-out usually gets a better three-point shot as they come off the screen. That's what happened in that third period."
    Nine players scored for the Braves and all 11 players got playing time. Brian Fullenkamp added eight points while Josh Macklin hit three of four shots for six points for the Braves. Logan Smith scored four,while Matt Chronister and Jacob Schueler both put in three and Kyle Lehrman two points.
    "We were able to get some kids playing time that we're going to need later on. They did a nice job. Josh Macklin came in and hit three real good shots and that will help him get some more playing time. Matt Chronister played well, and that gives us some more relief for Logan inside," said the BHS coach.
    The Braves nabbed 10 steals and forced 26 turnovers in all and in that third period the Railroaders took only seven shots, hitting a pair. For the game, Garrett put up only 38 shots, hitting 16 for 42 percent. Bellmont hit 44 percent, but up 59 shots. The Braves hit eight of 18 from beyond the arc.
    Chronister led the Braves with six rebounds, and five were on the offensive end. Baker, who had an excellent all around game, pulled down five rebounds to go with three assists and four steals. Fuelling added four rebounds. The Braves limited Garrett to five offensive rebounds.
    Drake Landes had a big game for Garrett (2-3), scoring 25 points and grabbing eight of the Railroaders 23 rebounds. He hit seven of 13 from the field. Brandon Porter scored 13 points and Quentin Fiandt tallied eight.
    "I was pretty pleased with our balance.The kids played well, but we're not going to have those kinds of runs against New Haven Friday. They have a solid team," said Patterson of the NHC contest set for the Teepee.
    
BHS Jayvees Roll
    Max Collier hit five of his six shots and led a 51-23 Bellmont jayvee victory with 15 points. Lance Vergara scored nine while Jacob Schueler tallied seven. Brian Fullenkamp and Matt Stidam both put in six.
    Garrett did win the frosh game, 37-30. Cameron Bienz led Bellmont with 12 points while Maverich Birch scored 10.
