Belleview Christian won its first football game since 2012 on Saturday.

The Bruins beat Miami-Yoder 18-14 during their homecoming contest. It was their first victory since Oct. 6, 2012 against Justice — five years and one day ago.

The 8-man football program started in the fall of 2012, and went 2-6. Belleview Christian was then 0-7 in 2013, and didn't field a team in 2014 nor 2015. The Bruins returned to the field last season, and went 0-6. 

It means Saturday's win, which was the first varsity win for second-year coach Darius Oller, also snapped a 17-game losing streak.
