Last 2 years mcdonald lost to Reserve and Lowellville, teams they swept in the regular season. Hopefully this trend does not continueBut I always hated playing a team for the third time in the tournament.
Usually has disaster written all over it.
Good luck tonight!
Wouldn't be surprised to see all six advance.Sectional Finals on Friday:
Ridge at Garfield
St Thomas Aquinas at Springfield
East Canton at Waterloo
Milton at McDonald
Lowellville at Mathews
Lisbon at Sebring
Think there’s a decent chance 5 MVAC schools get to the district semi’s
The amazing thing is that many of McDonald’s turnovers were unforced. Just silly, lazy passes or dropping or mishandling easy passes. I think Rasile and Portolese are the only ones that have played at the Fieldhouse. They both played well. Their two other scorers have to step it up a notch next game. The others may have had a little nerves to get out of their system or maybe just getting used to the different atmosphere.McDonald wins 73-60. Credit to Lowellville, they played a great game making a ton of contested shots and not turning it over much after the 1st Quarter. As for McDonald they’ll need to play much better going forward. Lots of turnovers and missed shots around the rim. Survive and move on.
I'll predict Waterloo over LaBraeMVAC home to 2 district champions! Waterloo wins the D3 Salem district in the rubber match with fellow MVAC school Springfield. They move on to play Labrae who I’d say Waterloo is a favorite against.
McDonald wins the D4 Struthers district over Southern in a game they led by 20+ the majority of but let southern get back in it with very careless passes against the 4th quarter Indians press. Blue Devils face a familiar school in Lucas at regionals. Lucas beat McDonald in OT in the football playoffs en route to their state runner-up.
