Bellefontaine wants to continue to move forward against rival Lakers

IL Belf

Indian Lake points to a 28-24 comeback win over Bellefontaine as the turning point in a 6-4 season a year ago.

With the Lakers off to a 1-3 start, the same position they were in going into the Bellefontaine game last season, they are hoping a win over the Chiefs will turn the tide.

The two Logan County squads meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Bellefontaine in a Central Buckeye Conference crossover game.

“We were 1-3 last year when we played Bellefontaine and I felt like that win against them got us turned around,” said Indian Lake head coach Dave Coburn. “One of our goals every year is to win this game. It is important to our school and to our community. Hopefully, we will come out and put together the type of performance we are capable of.”

Bellefontaine (2-2) will be looking to continue the Lakers’ struggles. The Chiefs are coming off a 52-6 win over Benjamin Logan, a game in which Bellefontaine amassed nearly 600 yards of offense.

“We knew coming in that this would be a process,” said first-year BHS coach Toby Smith. “We all want to be able to take giant steps right away, but sometimes that is not realistic. We felt like we took a nice step last week and we hope to take another step forward as a program Friday night.”
