BELTON — Some soccer strategy seeped into Belton’s game plan Friday night. The Tigers certainly accomplished their goal.

Needing a win to keep itself in the playoff hunt, Belton essentially played keep away with Ellison’s high-powered offense. The Tigers neutralized elusive quarterback Breezion Spiller and his collection of play-making cohorts by controlling the time of possession — including an opening drive that consumed 9 minutes of the first quarter — the defense hunkered down when it had to, and the result, a strong-willed 14-12 victory, was quite rewarding at such a crucial time.
