Bellefontaine’s girls basketball team put together a gritty first-half effort Friday against visiting Wapakoneta, but couldn’t hold on over the final two quarters in the season opener.

The Chieftains trailed just 19-14 at halftime, but the Redskins were able to pull away in the second half for a 41-28 final.
“I didn’t know what to expect other than that we were facing a good opponent,” said BHS head coach Henry Stolly, who coached the boys program for the last nine years. “I knew our girls would work hard.
“From a boys to girls stand point it wasn’t that different for me as a coach. I wasn’t sure how the little details would go, but overall I was proud of the effort and intensity for 32 minutes. Our girls showed a lot of fight out there.”
