The Chiefs, who were coming off a onepoint win over Springfield Shawnee on Friday, are now 5-15 on the season.

“I thought from the second half Friday night on, that the effort was there,” said Bellefontaine head coach Jason Calton. “The guys gave a good effort in the second half Friday and carried that through (Saturday’s game). Offensively, I was pleased with the balanced scoring and we were able to knock some shots.

“Defensively, we had some issues at times with their athleticism. (Danny Lewis) is a nice player and he got loose on us a few times.” It was a tight battle throughout. The Thunderbolts (6-13) led 20-17 after one quarter and the visitors held a two-point lead (38- 36) at halftime.
