Having suffered a loss to Jonathan Alder last week, Bellefontaine can’t afford to fall further behind the Pioneers in the Central Buckeye Conference standings if it wants to win a second straight Kenton Trail division title.
The Chiefs are looking to play with a sense of urgency as they prepare to face Springfield Shawnee on Friday in a pivotal CBC contest at BHS.
The Braves and Chiefs are currently tied for second behind Jonathan Alder in the KT standings with 4-1 records. Jonathan Alder is 5-0 in league play.
Bellefontaine (7-5 overall) will try to get some momentum rolling after a 14-point win at Marysville on Tuesday.
“I have seen the gradual improvement throughout the season, but it seems like we haven’t been able to put a string of wins together for a variety of reasons,” said Bellefontaine coach Jason Calton. “I am expecting (the Marysville win) to launch us into a higher level of play coming down the home stretch.”
