Port Clinton tops Bellevue

The Redskins found plenty of ways to win during last year's perfect regular season and run to the Division II state championship game.

It's a safe bet none were quite like this one.

"The kids just stuck with it," Troy Diels said of Port Clinton's 44-40 season-opening win Friday over Bellevue. "There were times when they could have hung their heads and packed it in, but our defense did some good things that led to some easy scores."

It just took a while. A long while.

"That team went 20-0 during the regular season last year. They played with that pride," Bellevue coach Mike Raifsnider said. "In the end, they refused to get beat."
