Braves bounce Bruins from postseason, 42-21

INDIANAPOLIS — With the Class 3A Sectional 29 football title on the line Friday night, the Tri-West Bruins were a part of history.

Unfortunately, it was another team’s history as the Brebeuf Braves won their first-ever sectional football title with a 42-21 win.

“We just couldn’t make enough plays on them and they could,” Tri-West coach Chris Coll said. “That’s what it came down to.”

Brebeuf couldn’t have started the game much better as running back LeVante’ Bellamy broke around the right side for an 80-yard touchdown on the first play. Bellamy finished the night with 299 yards on 25 carries and four touchdowns.

“He’s fast, but his lateral movement is like nothing I’ve seen… and his ability to jump cut, to laterally slide, oh my goodness,” Coll said.

Brebeuf coach Mic Roessler attributed the Braves’ success to a “culture change” and student body and athletes that have bought into what the first-year coach has asked of them — and a great running back doesn’t hurt either.

“(Bellamy) is really something special,” Roessler said. “He’s got the power to run through it, the vision to see around it and the ability to make every bad play look great.”

Tri-West responded to Brebeuf’s opening salvo with a 13-play, 80-yard TD drive that culminated with an 18-yard strike from Jake Hendershot to Colton Jobe.

Brebeuf answered as Bellamy scored his second TD of the night from 3 yards out.

Both teams turned the ball over on downs and then Brebeuf held Tri-West to a three-and-out.

Brebeuf took advantage as Aaron Banks found Jack Roberts for a 36-yard TD strike and the Braves led, 21-7.

Brebeuf scored after another Tri-West three-and-out with Bellamy going in again, this time from 38 yards out.
