It was not a win, but Bellefontaine’s football team felt like it turned a corner against Springfield Shawnee a week ago.
The Chiefs fell down 14-0, but showed an impressive amount of fight by coming back to send a major scare into the unbeaten and state-ranked Braves.
Bellefontaine scored a touchdown on the final play of regulation to climb within a point. The Chiefs decided to go for two points and the win, but a pass attempt fell incomplete and allowed the Braves to hang on for the 34-33 victory.
The key for the Chiefs now is to build on the positives from the Shawnee game and carry over that progress into Friday night’s home game against Tecumseh.
“Our kids are excited about the opportunity to get back out there,” said Bellefontaine head coach Toby Smith. “As a staff, we are excited to find out if we have taken as big of a step as we felt like we’ve made.”
