Bellefontaine 1, Sidney 0

The Chieftains took advantage of a penalty kick with about five minutes left and made it to earn a nonconference win over the Yellow Jackets on Thursday in Bellefontaine.

“We did not play very well tonight,” Sidney coach Jamie Fridley said. “We made several tactical errors tonight as a team. Our touches and passing were not very good and we played with no focus and very little effort.

“But the one bright spot we took from this game was the backline of Michael Koester, Jaden Humphrey, Landon Davis, Jaxon Rickey and Josh Webster and keeper Trey Werntz played very well. They held Bellefontaine too just three shots on goal.

“We just could not find any kind of attacking play tonight because of our tactical errors. We did have the mental breakdown and fouled in the box that led to the PK they scored on.”
