Updated: Chiefs soccer falls to Tipp City, Spartans claim title

Several area soccer teams hit the field recently.

The Bellefontaine varsity boys lost to rival Tipp City 2-0 in the Division II sectional final at Piqua Monday.

The Red Devils took control with two first-half goals.

The Chiefs end the season 11-4-3.

Bellefontaine set two school records this fall.

They recorded ten shutouts and had the best goals against average (.89 per game).

Bellefontaine head coach Steve Henry said, "I am really proud of the way that we didn't back down to their aggressiveness. They had a few free kicks in the 1st half that turned out to be just what they needed, because both of their goals came off of them. We just couldn't find many looks on their defense. This class of seniors is really a special bunch. Besides being the largest class that I have coached, they might have the most skill of any class that I have coached. It will be hard group to replace. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to coach them."

Tipp City advances to the district title game against Indian Hill Thursday night at Bellbrook.
