SIDNEY — Turnovers at inopportune times resulted in a heartbreaking loss for Bellefontaine here Friday.

The Chiefs had two costly fumbles in the fourth quarter as host Sidney rallied for a 17-14 victory in a non-league game.

“The kids played hard and with a lot of heart, but we just had too many mistakes tonight,” said Bellefontaine head coach Chris Schmidt.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Chiefs over Sidney.

The Yellow Jackets broke a 20-game losing skid with an overtime win over St. Marys last week.

“Our kids have showed a lot of composure, especially for a group that has not been real successful,” said Sidney head coach Adam Doenges. “We’ve tried to get our kids to act like winners. They are starting to play with some confidence.”
