Chieftains don’t plan on taking Jackets lightly

Bellefontaine Chiefs

Coming off its biggest win of the season, Bellefontaine’s boys basketball team wants to make sure it takes advantage of its momentum and avoids making a step backward.

That is the focus for Bellefontaine going into Friday night’s game at winless Sidney.

“We had a big league win Friday at Tippecanoe and we’ve talked a lot about keeping focused,” said BHS head coach Henry Stolly. “Our guys are playing with confidence right now, but we also have to understand that we still have areas we have to improve in.”

The Yellow Jackets are 0-6 overall and 0-2 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference.

Stolly saw the Yellow Jackets play against Tippecanoe on Saturday, a game that was tied after three quarters before the Red Devils pulled away late for an 85-72 win.

“Sidney is a dangerous team,” said Stolly. “They have not had much success, but they have played an extremely difficult schedule. We can’t afford to look past anybody. They play with a lot of energy on their home court.”
