“With those conditions and the way the wind was howling at times, we wanted the wind in our backs the first half and we were able to get a goal,” said Head Coach Jamie Hughes. “The second half was all about trying to limit their chances and maybe squeeze out a second. We didn’t get the goal we wanted, but we played great team defense to limit their opportunities and in the tournament, it’s all about winning and moving on. I think we are playing as well as we have all season at the right time and Graham will certainly be a tough opponent on Thursday. I hope we can pack the home stands as we play for a sectional title.”

Graham beat Milton Union in overtime 3-2.

Owen Powell had two goals for the Falcons.

The Bellefontaine varsity team lost to Bethel 10-3 in the opening round of the DII Sectional Tournament.
