Short-handed Chiefs fall to Wildcats 51-39

The injury bug has become so bad for Bellefontaine’s girls basketball team that it claimed the squad’s head coach Saturday.

Chieftain boss Brian Hogan was ill and unable to lead the team Saturday night against visiting Kenton. Also out of action were injured starters Brenda Johnson and Kameren Haley.

The short-handed Chiefs got off to a good start, but could not keep pace with the Wildcats in the second half for a 51-39 non-league loss.

Bellefontaine falls to 4-7, while the Wildcats improve to 5-3.

“We just seemed to lack focus,” said BHS assistant Jim Sanford, who filled in for Hogan. “With Kameren being out and not having their coach, the girls just didn’t seem to be all on the same page.”
