SPRINGFIELD — Bellefontaine’s football team took care of its business Friday night, and set up a huge Week 10 showdown against London next week.

Pirates fend off Lions for 56-32 victory
Riverside pulled away from a feisty Cincinnati College Prep team down the stretch to record a 56-32 victory in a non-league football game Friday night.

“It was a good opponent for us,” said Riverside head coach Bryce Hodge. “They came in ranked eighth in our region, so I told our boys that it would be like playing a playoff game in Week 9.
