District Final 3/10: Lucasville Valley vs. Portsmouth

Post by chicken_coop » March 5th, 2012, 11:29 pm

Here we go folks!! 2 of the top teams in SEO battling it out for a district title...these 2 met in 2010 in a 4/5 game that Valley won 63-62 and many considered that an upset, as Portsmouth was favored even as the 5 seed. This trojan group made a run to the FF so they are tournament and battle tested!

Gonna be a great game on Saturday....

Do you get all the gamesfor 1 price? Coop may consier making the drive if thats the case!

I believe the DIV finals at 10 and 12 are one price and the DIII finals starting at 5 are one price.

Peake v. Peebles
Ironton v. Eastern Brown
Portsmouth v. Valley

I can't imagine getting more for $6 than that!!

Saturday at the Convo will be another in a long line of outstanding "District Championship Saturdays" that take place every year on campus at OU!!! And, I think this game is the perfect "headliner" if you will, considering it is being played as the last of the day's 5 games. Portsmouth comes in having won 17 in a row and being the SEOAL Champs, while Valley enters having won 17 of their last 19 along with an SOC 2 title. Both teams are senior laden, veteran groups, who play very good defense. The Trojans have excellent speed and can definitely hurt you with their quickness, meanwhile the Indians boast the most size in the SE District and are very successful in the half-court game.

I'm very excited for Saturday!!!!

Let's go Indians!!!!!!

imo this game will come down to how the game is called. if the stripes let them play I would give the edge to portsmouth. If its called close then i think the pendulem swings over to valley. should be a great game!

I think Valley is by far the more rounded team. Portsmouth (by far) will have the best player on the court.

Should be interesting. Go SOC II!

There is a girls Regional Final game between the DIV and DIII games.

DIV Game at 10:00
DIV Game at 11:45
Girls - Winner of Oak Hill vs. Fairland faces the winner of Africentric vs. Fort Frye at 1:45
Peake v. Peebles at 5:00
Ironton v. Eastern Brown 7:00
Portsmouth v. Valley 9:00

I would imagine they will clear the Convo after the girls game.

i watched Portsmouth play last night and I cannot figure out this. Hopefully a Portsmouth fan can answer this for me. Why does the coach not play number 1 this kid seems to be very capable of playing same 6 all night. Does not seem to make sense to me.

His record is 20 and 2 this year he won 20 games last year. took last years team to the final 4. had a winning record his first year as a high school varsity coach 2 years ago. so as a Portsmouth fan I dont think I will question his coaching ability. but I will say this he does has a couple young players on the bench that you will definatly be seeing in the next couple of years.

TIGERFOOL you did not ruffle my feathers at all.
Im going to get back to the game at hand on this thread and let the coaches worry about coaching.

this should be a very good ball game bewteen two very good teams also should make for a very good crowd at the convoy...Scioto county will no doubt have folks comeing even from other schools to se this one.

All I can say is if Trojans play like they did last night against Valley, it will be long ride home for the Trojans.

Valley has a group of seniors that will play together. this group just knows how to win. Ptown might have the edge in talent but Valley will win this one on effort and team play. i say Valley by 8

I have absolutely loved the defense that the Trojans have played thus far in the tournament........and that defense is the main reason that PHS has a 20-2 record........I expect to see PHS come at Valley really hard........the Indians have a lot of size, so Portsmouth must keep that size off the boards.

A win will give Portsmouth the 36th district championship in school history.........GO TROJANS!!!

Portmouth seniors haven't forgotten what this Valley team did to them a couple years ago. Portsmouth will leave no doubt this time. Trojans by 14.

trojandave, I can remember quite a few conversations about success happening on the defensive end for the Trojans. They have bought into Coach Collins schemes and with that you have that success. Represent the SEOAL well and do it with D.

As a Portsmouth fan, many of us have been itching for this mythical rematch with the team that sent us home packing two years ago. I know most of the players were wanting a crack at em last year. This year is no different from the fan/ player stand point. If you polled many of us, Valley is the team we want to excercise a demon against. Players for the Trojans who were apart of that loss.....Wayne Evans, Dion Mckinley, Seth Bratchett, Len Collins....and the rest of the team were around the program, I guarantee everyone of them remembers....hopefully Valley won't make us regret our desire to face off with them again. They're capable of winning. But the way it's lined up for the Trojans....there's no hiding......Go Trojans

This game could go either way. I think Valley definately has the tools to beat the Trojans. We all know that Dion is going to come away with his points. Great players always do in these type of games. We just can't let the other players on the team beat us. We need to put a lot of pressure on Portsmouths guard. I think we can force some turnovers if we keep the pressure up. (Side not: I am very surprised the Seth Bratchett doesn't play that much. I think that he is the best option at guard that the trojans have on their team.)
Also, and I know I am biased, but I'll take this group of seniors at valley over anyone other school in the state. This group is so different than any I've ever seen. They are so determined and unselfish. A ton of workhorses that will sacrafice their own successes for the success of the enitre team. I'm so proud of the way this group carries themselves on and off the court.
Lastly, I hope coach is pushing the bleachers back in the gym and having the boys get lots off shots up on the side rims. It is definately different shooting on those rims at the convo. Hopefully we can hit more than 1 three ball this time.
GO INDIANS!!!
