Just going by scores, this seems like Waterford's strongest team yet. I would be surprised if they don't advance.

I look for Waterford by about 20 to 30.
Some comparable scores I looked at.

Fairfield beat rosecrans by 16, and 25.
Fort Frye beat rosecrans by 16.
Waterford beat Fort frye by 37, and 30.

Fairfield lost to Morgan by 17.
Morgan lost to Warren by 7
Waterford beat Warren by 11

Of course anything can happen on any given day, but my money's on Waterford to return to the Schottenstein Center

wildcats win this one going away. I think FC will keep it close through two quarters but the defense will dominate. FC is not disciplined enough on defense to stop the Lady Cats.

Cats by 25+

At this stage in the game all teams are good. I expect Waterford to win but doubt that it will be by the 30+ that some are predicting. FC has strong guard play and a solid post player and Waterford will need to shoot the ball better than they did against Notre Dame. Plus, FC has already played a game at Pickerington North in the regional semi and this is Waterford's only game there (which is something I've never quite understood). Point being that FC may be a little more comfortable at the outset. I will take Waterford by 15.

I agree Shoot- It-From-Deep , had a poor shooting game Thursday nite or score would have even been a bigger margin . They should be ready and hyped, a lot of over hype on last game, they’re experience, speed, pressure, and just hard nosed players will see them thru.The Cats I think will see a more competitive game but in the end will prevail and move on to Columbus Schott.

The Cats are the Class of Div 4 this year, just a few minor speed bumps along the way, but there court savy in Div 4 is bar none the best I’ve seen. They are a class group of lady’s that play hard and are a couple notches ahead of teams they have played and in the end will be rewarded I think in the Schott, the class of the Southern part of Ohio girls basketball. Columbus next week. Good Luck Waterford!

Waterford's biggest lead was 7 points. Coach Close said post game that FCA's quickness surprised them and disrupted their offense some. Neither team shot well at all. This may have been the test that the lady wildcats needed going into the Schott next week. Here is what is scary. From what they said on the radio, FCA has everyone back next year.

Same coach that will be taking a team to it's 4th straight state tournament. Yeah, that guy is terrible. Don't know how he hasn't blown games in the past. Lol

Waterford coaches stood in a daze as the second quarter flew by, the crowd was yelling for the defense to get back, but the coach still had them pressing, I'm guessing some spectator went in the locker room at the half and told him to lay off the press, they finally figured it out by the 3rd, but the damages were done.

And yes he has blown games in the past, A time out called at the right time would have sent the cats to state a few years earlier
