The Hornets of Coal Grove make the long trip to Ironton to take on the Fighting Tigers, thoughts?

What a game this one will be! Hopefully the hornets come out with the same defensive energy they had against Oak Hill and create some turnovers and escape with what could be a very huge conference win.

Sounds like this could be a Defensive battle, Irontons D has turned it up a notch.

Would be very surprised if this game were decided by more than 5-6 points. Both teams are playing well right now. Have seen Coal Grove 4 times and they are 4-0, while I've seen Ironton twice and they are 0-2. The Hornets probably want me to show up, while the Tigers want me to stay away.

... with the CG loss today to Minford , might have to give the advantage to Ironton now ... if the Hornets were cold shooting vs Minford AND the Tigers have turned up their defense AND with this one AT I'town ... Ironton is the favorite ...

After having a 14pt lead ( 37-23 ) over Minford at half today, and being outscored ( 33-16 ) in the 2nd half by Minford, I'm just having a hard time thinking this is the same team that beat Oak hill a few days ago. With Ironton being pretty good, I would have picked the Tigers over the Grove at Ironton anyway. I guess this just shows again, that's why they play the game. Also it is probably one of the best wins that Minford has had in awhile, and might just give them enough confidence to help them salvage the rest of there season.

The Hornets have been without starting PG Jaylen McKenzie the past 2 games. They really rely on being able to create turnovers and getting transition buckets, Mckenzie is a huge part of that on the defensive side. He’s been missed, but looks like there’s an outside chance he plays Tuesday. If the Hornets get their offense via defense game going, it’ll make the Ironton D a moot point.

McKenzie coming back will also assist with facilitation and allow the other guys to move and create like they usually do. Too many weapons if they all play for any 1 defense in SEO to shut down. The only way they lose is if shots don’t fall.

There’s a budding rivalry between these 2. I see the game being tight with the Hornets depth allowing them to break it open by 5-10 towards the end of the game.

The game will be on Facebook.com/coalgrovelive if you’re looking to catch it but can’t make the trip.

I know that Jaylen McKenzie was one of the big reasons that they were able to create so many turnovers a few days ago against Oak Hill. Didn't realize
that he has not been able to play the past couple games. Hope he is able to play against the Tigers, I think it will be a very good ballgame.

Ironton takes this one in front of their home crowd.

Flyers58: I would like to see this one, but my Trojans are playing at home vs. Gallia Academy. The Trojans always come first.

I took in the game on Saturday against Minford. McKenzie most definitely played in that game.

Ironton has some kids who can crash the boards. I look for them to win a close one.

I just don't think this game will be that close. Ironton has too much fire power in Large and Carrico but they go as Wilson goes. Ironton at home +7 but the Hornets need this one bad.

I hadn't attended the game on Saturday but had heard he wasn't going for a recheck until today, if he did play, that's good. could have been not 100% either so that may have an impact.

It is hard to beat ironton at home, just like it is in football - you all already know the reason why :)

Pull up facebook and go to facebook.com/coalgrovelive to watch it where ever you are, even at another game .
