Bellmont traveled to Star Field to take on South Adams in a cross-county battle of the pitch Thursday night and the trip proved to be beneficial for the Braves as they picked up their second win of the year in a 5-0 decision.
The score was 1-0 heading into halftime with the Stars very much in the mix, but coach Jake Briede's Braves kicked it into gear netting four more strikes before the final horn sounded.
"I thought we played well," coach Briede commented after the game. "There were times where we went away from our game and times we played our best soccer."
Senior captain Andy Hess scored two goals in the game, both unassisted, with the shot of the game coming off of a corner kick that had eyes all of the way into the back side of the goal. Cameron Bienz notched an unassisted goal and then provided a helper for Holland Herman's goal later in the match. Connor Martz also scored a goal for BHS, his coming on a penalty kick.
Caleb Schell held the Stars scoreless in the goal for Briede and the Braves with five solid saves.
"Caleb played the whole game in goal for us and I'm pleased with his solid play," praised the BHS coach. "I'm very happy with the team for putting up their second shutout in as many games for the great start."
SA's LJ Moser was a busy man in goal for the Starfires allowing five goals to the Braves but preventing further damage by stopping 12 shots from the Bellmont who possessed the ball for a majority of the match.
SA hosts Blackford tomorrow at noon, while Bellmont is off until Monday when they host Bishop Luers at the Teepee starting at 5p.m.
