BMS girls fall to Northumberland

BELLEVILLE – Head coach Brian Renno made his debut standing on a different kind of sidelines replacing the grass of a soccer field to hardwood of a basketball court. But the Northumberland Christian defense came up big in the second quarter and never looked back, defeating the Thunder 52-25 in ACAA girls basketball action Tuesday evening.

Things looked pretty even between the two teams as they each displayed a different approach to the game. Belleville Mennonite was looking to keep the game at a slow pace, while Northumberland Christian was trying to turn this game into a track meet and force the Thunder to run up and down the court.

And as the first quarter was coming to a close, the Warriors were able to pull ahead and got Belleville out of its offensive rhythm with the score 17-8 at the end of the frame.

But by the second quarter, the Northumberland Christian defense unloaded onto the Thunder as Belleville Mennonite was held scoreless in the frame while the Warriors dropped 21 points for the quarter to make it a 38-8 lead at the break.

Despite all that, the Thunder came out in the third quarter and pumped the brakes on the Northumberland Christian offense as they refused to allow little if any space to run the floor.

In fact, Belleville Mennonite had outscored the Warriors in the second half 17 to 14. Sonya Yoder led the Thunder with eight points for the evening.

Belleville Mennonite starts their season off at (0-1, 0-1) and will look to get their first win of the season on Friday as they travel to face Meadowbrook Christian.
