You're correct, PC's league sucked this year. The real challenging games (vs. championship caliber teams from IN, PA and MI were lost to COVID). Westerville Central was good, but Mentor was by far the best team we've seen this year. PC is incredibly talented but tonight was the first true test and they did not handle it well. All that to say, not withstanding tonight's performance -- they are just better than Mentor.PC plays garbage teams, so I’d hope they get up big. There just wasn’t much separating PC from a Mentor team without the engine that makes them go.
PC is just a good team... not a great one. Just like last year when the refs bailed them out and Kipp got hurt to derail a comeback that shouldn’t have been necessary.
Mentor are the real 2019 champs, and would be in the 2020 title game with Kipp. PC is as lucky as Mentor is cursed.
