The Red Devils piled up 408 rushing yards in a 49-14 victory over the Chiefs in a game that saw two Bellefontaine players taken to the hospital with injuries.

Bellefontaine quarterback Jake Kennedy was knocked out of the game late in the first half with a back injury and made a trip to a local hospital to be checked out.

BHS lineman Keary Ginn suffered a head injury in the second half and was transported to the hospital with an apparent concussion.

“It was a tough night,” said Bellefontaine head coach Chris Schmidt, whose team fell to 1-4 overall and 1-0 in Central Buckeye Conference play. “When you are playing a really good team and you are struggling, and then you lose two guys on top of it, it makes for a rough night. Our thoughts are certainly with those two guys.”
