Howey scored on runs of 3, 57 and 56 yards, with Max Ray adding an interception 26 yards for a score as the Redmen improved to 5-2 overall and 1-1 in the Sandusky Bay Conference Lake Division.
“I’m happy,” said Bellevue coach Ed Nasonti. “This isn’t an easy place to play and our kids bounced back from a tough one last week. I’m happy with our kids. They played hard.”
The Redmen started out slowly, losing a muffed punt and coughing up two fumbles in the first 14 minutes of action.
Despite the rocky start, the Pirates were only able to score a 26-yard Tyler Yingling field goal with 4:57 left in the first half to take a 3-0 lead. The drive started with a Caleb Marshall fumble and featured a 43-yard Tai Carter run to the Bellevue 21.
A Keegan Ray pass to Marshall two plays later was ruled a 47-yard catch that went out of bounds, setting Bellevue up at the Perkins 14. Jack Howey went over from the three two plays later to give the Redmen a 7-0 lead.
Ray picked off Chris Campbell three plays later to push the Bellevue lead to 14-3, but the Pirates were able to cut into the lead on a 63-yard Tai Carter scoring run with 43 seconds in the half.
The Redmen received the second-half kickoff and deliver the backbreaker two plays later when Howey broke free for a 57 yard score.

“Playing a team like Perkins, you can’t afford to give up three turnovers in the first half,” Nasonti said. “We didn’t panic at halftime, we just had to get back to playing our kind of ball. I thought our defense did a nice job in the first half, but turnovers kept them hanging around.”
