The Chieftains attacked from the paint and from the perimeter in a convincing 68-49 victory over the host Lakers in a Central Buckeye Conference crossover girls basketball game.

“This was a complete effort for us,” said BHS head coach Brian Hogan. “The girls really came together and are starting to jell well. We have a good rotation going and we are where we want to be at the end of the season.”

Little could go wrong for Bellefontaine (10-10, 4-5) in the first quarter as it raced out to a 17-4 advantage.

Indian Lake (8-13, 3-6) outscored the Chiefs 19-13 in the second quarter, but still trailed 30-23 at halftime.

The Chiefs’ Jazmyn Haley was a terror inside the paint during the second half for BHS. The senior scored 16 of her 23 points in the final two quarters.

That opened up shots from the perimeter for Bellefontaine, with two three-pointers coming from MacKenzie Brunswick.

“We were trying to not let them get the ball inside, but then they shot well from the outside,” said Indian Lake head coach Tim McMahon. “Jazmyn had a nice game and is tough to defend.
