The Bellefontaine varsity boys soccer team broke up a tight defensive struggle Wednesday night with two second half goals to defeat a scrappy Indian Lake Lakers team 2-0.
Senior Josh Neighoff got his 11th goal at the 29 minute mark of the second half. Senior Dhaile Ballesteros got his first of the year shortly thereafter at the 19 minute mark.
Zach Gingerich stopped 13 shots to record his fourth shutout of the year.
The Chiefs were concerned going into the game about how to stop Lakers freshman scoring sensation Connor Davis. Davis, who entered the game leading the Miami Valley district in goals with 14, was held in check by a Chieftain defense that kept a defender on him at all times.
Tyler Rode and Elijah Knief shared goal tending duties for the Lakers.
The Chiefs are now 6-2-1 on the year and play Tecumseh next Monday.
The Lakers drop to 5-6 and play Greenon next Monday.
