Beechwood gets shot at 6-0 Bellevue
BY NEIL SCHMIDT

In the 1970s and '80s, Beechwood and Bellevue wrestled for Class A football supremacy. This decade, though, Beechwood rocketed into a stratosphere Bellevue couldn't reach.
This fall, Bellevue has caught up. It is 6-0 for the first time since 1990, which was the last time it beat Beechwood. It tries to do that again tonight at Bellevue's Gilligan Stadium.
We're not surprised to be 6-0; we fully expected it, Bellevue coach Charlie Coleman said. We said before we have a veteran team.
Said Beechwood coach Mike Yeagle: I don't believe this (Bellevue season) is out of the blue. Bellevue has been a great program. This looks like the Bellevue of old.
Holmes (6-0) also will see its perfect season endangered with a visit tonight to Dixie Heights (5-1). The winner probably will be the top threat to Highlands' reign of the local Class 3A district.
