The offensive and defensive line were both pushing the Spartans around in the win. Connor Oldham ran for 123 yards on 28 carries. Quarterback David Vine also added 58 yards on the ground.
Vine had 76 yards passing in the game. Chandler Wren, Nathan Cordonnier and Nick Barhorst made all the receptions for the Golden Eagles.
Wren gave Bellbrook a boost coming out of the locker room for the second half. He returned the first kickoff of the second half 92 yards for a touchdown.
Bellbrook plays Franklin on the road at 7 p.m. next Friday at Atrium Stadium.

Beavercreek 17, Northmont 7
BEAVERCREEK— A solid running game, stifling defense and the only Beavercreek pass completion of the night, earned the host homecoming Beavercreek Beavers Friday’s win on Frank Zink Field.
Tim Bradshaw gained 140 yards on the ground on 32 carries, but his 1-yard touchdown run was set up by Beavercreek’s lone pass completion — a 27-yard lob from back-up quarterback Cody Hacker to Julian Linkhart. The Beavers junior was double covered by a pair of Thunderbolts, but came down with the ball on the Northmont half yard line. Two plays later, Bradshaw barreled in from a yard out to put the Beavers out in front by 10 points.
Beavercreek’s defense played well, too.
With Northmont threatening to score and pull within one possession of either tying the game or pulling ahead, the Thunderbolts drove down to the Beavercreek 9-yard line with five minutes left to play.
But that’s when junior defensive back Jack Kowalski killed the ‘Bolts chances by snaring an interception in the Beaver end zone.
On Northmont’s final possession of the contest, Brian Loose sacked ‘Bolt quarterback Brenden Reck on a 4th-and15 play from the Beavers 16-yard line. Beavercreek ran out the clock after that to preserve the win.
Beavercreek starting quarterback Hunter Maloney was injured on the Beavers’ first drive of the second half. Hacker filled in admirably the rest of the way. There was no report on the extend of Maloney’s injury after the game.

Badin slogs to win over Carroll
DAYTON – Three second-half touchdowns from Badin’s Jack VanSteenkiste powered the Rams to a 28-7 victory over the Carroll Patriots Friday night.
Down by just a touchdown three plays into the fourth quarter, the Patriots appeared poised to get the ball back with a chance to attempt a game-tying drive. But the Rams had other ideas. On 4th and 16 from just outside the red zone, Badin scored on a backbreaking 22-yard hook and lateral play to VanSteenkiste to go up by two touchdowns.
The Rams then picked off Carroll quarterback Jacob Severt on two successive drives before scoring on a Zach Larkin pass to VanSteenkiste to ice the game.
Severt ended the game 12 of 30, 140 yards, two interceptions passing with one rushing touchdown.
