Beechwood gets shot at 6-0 Bellevue

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        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.
