DECATUR—A tale of two halves.
The Bellmont Squaws hosted the East Noble Lady Knights on Friday night in an NE8 conference battle. East Noble came in at 3-6 while Bellmont entered the game at 6 – 1. But this is conference basketball and there are no weak sisters. After a ten point deficit at halftime, the Squaws came roaring back in the second half to win 50 – 40.
At the start of the game the East Noble girls were the aggressor, making it difficult for Bellmont to get to the rim to score. Meanwhile, the Lady Knights we’re hitting three balls, four in the first quarter to be exact on their way to a 16 to 10 advantage at the end of the period.
