On Monday, the B-A girls basketball team travelled to Huntingdon, where they picked up a big win.

The Lady Devils got up to an early lead and never looked back, winning 55-30.

The Blue Devils jumped out to an 20-7 lead after the first quarter. Keeping their momentum through the second quarter as well, BA outscored Huntingdon 11-8 for a 31-15 halftime lead.

Coming out of the half Bellwood kept up strong defense, holding Huntingdon to single digits in each quarter. BA had a successful game coming from beyond the arc, adding 6 3-pointers.

The girls had a well balanced win, getting 15 points from Jenna Norton, 14 from Lilly Gerwert, and 10 from Chloe Hammond.

Bellwood now has a record of 13-8, which ranks them 7th in the District 6 2A playoff hunt with only one regular season game left to play.

The Lady Devils will take on Phillipsburg-Osceola away on Thursday.

B-A headed into the break down 41-21.

Bellwood wasn’t going to back down in the second half and kept coming at the Rangers. The Blue Devils scored 14 in the third, but once again Forest Hills had an answer every time B-A found success. The Blue Devils found themselves in a 24 point hole heading into the fourth quarter.

B-A exercised all options in the game with most varsity players seeing a good amount of minutes. The Blue Devils had 11 different players record a point, but it was Martin Fatzinger and Anthony Caracciolo who led the way with 11 and 10 points respectively.

Bellwood and Forest Hills matched each other in the fourth quarter with 18 points and the Blue Devils lost by 24 points.
