Bellwood beats Tyrone in physical rival contest

January 7, 2014
By Jon Fleck - For the Mirror , The Altoona Mirror

TYRONE - The third annual "Brawlin for a Cure'' breast cancer awareness game between Bellwood-Antis and Tyrone was not for the faint of heart.

No fists were thrown, but both teams went after each relentlessly from the opening tip to the final buzzer.

It was every bit the hard-fought, physical game the name suggests from which Bellwood prevailed with a 49-43 win Monday at the Tyrone Area Middle School gym.

Ana Hollen led the Lady Devils with a near triple-double. The junior point guard scored 12 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and had eight steals, helping Bellwood improve to 6-2. Tyrone fell to 6-2 as well.

"It was going both ways. I did lose my cool for a little bit," Hollen said. "You were either physical or you got beaten up. I'm proud of the way we kept our composure and just kept at it."
