Blue Devils go 0-2 in holiday tournament

Anthony Caracciolo and Holden Schreier look to double the ball against Tyrone.

The Northern Blair Kiwanis Club hosted its annual Reliance Bank Boy’s Basketball holiday tournament at Tyrone over Christmas break.

The Bellwood-Antis boys lost a pair, holding close for a half in both games before being outgunned in the second.

Because the tournament had only three entrants this year, it was run as a round-robin event with no title game.

The Blue Devils played Penn Cambria for their first game of the tournament, losing 63-38 on Wednesday night.

Bellwood kept it close throughout the whole first half, only trailing by 4 heading into the second half at 25-21. It was 28-26 with a little more than three minutes to go in the third quarter before Penn Cambria came out firing. The Panthers  outscored Bellwood 21-10 in the third quarter and 17-7 in the fourth.

It was a tough outing for the Bellwood offense due to excessive turnovers from Penn Cambria defensive pressure, which led to Bellwood shooting 13 for 33 from the floor.

A shining spot for the team was a game high 21 points coming from Anthony Caracciolo, as well as a game high 7 rebounds from Holden Schreier.

Thursday night the boys faced off against Tyrone, losing 43-70.

Just like their game against Penn Cambria, Bellwood kept it within reach for the first half of the game. After getting outscored 20-9 in the first quarter the boys got it within 12 heading into the second half. Tyrone kept the heat up and ended the game winning by 27.

Caracciolo had a game high of 23 points and was B-A’s lone representative on the All-Tournament team.
