WESTMINSTER — No. 14 BFA-Fairfax defeated third-seeded Bellows Falls 76-53 in a Division 3 boys basketball playoff game Wednesday at Holland Gym. The visitors stole a 9-0 lead in the first four minutes and increased that advantage to 19 by halftime.

Bellows Falls started the third quarter with an 8-2 surge to get within 45-32. Center Owen LaRoss blocked four shots and had a couple of putbacks in that span, while Jon Terry and Jackson Goodell each contributed with a layup.

Senior Logan Lisai scored 10 points to pace the hosts, including a couple of makes from downtown. Jon Terry and Walker James netted nine points apiece.

Goodell made the highlight reel in the opening quarter, with a pretty reverse layup after a feed from Jack Cravinho. Cravinho chipped in with a pair of trifectas in the first 12 minutes of action for the Terriers, who ended up with a 5-5 mark.
