Fairmont scores with 2 seconds left to edge Chiefs

KETTERING — Like many coaches, Bellefontaine’s Jason Calton is not into moral victories. But it was hard for the Chieftain head coach to find much to complain about after his team lost to a Division I Fairmont team by two points here Tuesday night.

Bellefontaine fell behind by 16 points in the first half and rallied to take the lead in the fourth quarter.

With the game tied at 65-65, Fairmont used its size advantage with 6-4 junior guard Kellan Bochenek to get a driving basket in the lane with two seconds to go to clip the Chiefs 67-65 in an entertaining non-league boys basketball game at the spacious Trent Arena.

“We talked with the guys about this being a litmus test for us,” said Calton. “Would we fold or would we play with the big boys? Our guys gave it everything they had. This team has no quit.”
