COLUMBIANA, OH- The Lisbon Blue Devils jumped back into action on Wednesday to battle the red-hot Heartland Christian Lions in the Purple Palace.  With a big win over Wellsville in their rearview, the Devils were looking for another signature win down the stretch to jumpstart their tournament beliefs.

Unfortunately, Jon Bertovich and the mighty Lions had other plans.

Bertovich continued his sizzling senior campaign with a double-double that consisted of 24 points, and 10 boards.  Joel Morgan and Sam Osborn had 10 point showings for the Pride as well, while Luke Reynolds had a half dozen points and 3 rips for Heartland.

Lisbon was led by Hunter Dailey’s 19 points and 9 boards that went alongside Trevor Siefke’s 11 points, three helpers, and two rebounds.

Heartland (15-4) will turn their attention to Saturday’s game against South Range in the Palace, while Lisbon (11-7) will play host to East Palestine on Friday in an EOAC matchup.
