Very tight game in Toledo it was. Game in Lima not so close as Lima was up by 20 at the end of 3 and coasted to a 11pt victory.Lima is the clear favorite, but I don't think Central is that far behind. When I watched them play at Central it was anyone's game. I think the final score was a 3 point margin. I am not sure if Central has the same depth as last year but that could be a good thing. The high school game is too short to sub 5 on and 5 off like many college or pro teams do.
I thought Clay would be a little better this year. No reason to take it on the chin that bad from Northview. Clay has everyone back (albeit from a bad season) and Northview lost their two best players (from a good season). The Northview coach is quickly becoming one of the better coaches in the area.Clay lost badly to Northview, who lost to Woodward. Not looking good for Clay. All sitting bench at Stritch as Stritch reloads with transfers?
St. Francis has a couple good wins early.
I think Clay will be ok. They got off to a really bad start in that game and couldn't make a run to get back in it. Northview hit 7 behind the arc in the first half. You could tell who had a game under their belt and who didn't. Also, Clay was without arguably the 2nd leading scorer on the team. They will be a better team this year. Once they are healthy they will be an ok team.I thought Clay would be a little better this year. No reason to take it on the chin that bad from Northview.

I think Stritch only has 1 Oregon kid in the program this year.
Anyone know if Pick Central was missing any football players for their game vs St. Francis? If not that is a real nice showing by St. Francis.
Nice start for SFS with 3 close wins. Isn't SFS basically last years JV team?was not overly impressed with SFS
Central at St. John's has been pushed back to February. Central won't open their season until Friday night.Conference action on Tuesday 12/10:
Lima Sr vs Clay Lima rolls in this one.
Whitmer vs Findlay Watched Whitmer vs Lima, with all the talent Whitmer graduated i think Findlay will take this one.
St Francis vs Ross Havent seen either team but hearing St. Francis is better than expected. I'll take St Francis.
TCC vs STJ This sounds like it will be a battle but seeing how STJ held there own against St Eds i'll take STJ.
What your guys opinion on these matchups?
More interesting is how/if the boys are related. Brothers? First cousins? I don't remember that last name from back in the day.....How many Hornbeaks in this league now? I see SF and SJ each have a Hornbeak and Whitmer has one as well. Pushing Kynard's for Toledo athletic royalty.
Wow!! Lima Senior is fun to watch. I was hoping for to see some Athletes and they did not disappoint. Probably about 5 dunks and another 4-5 they missed that still were exciting. I was also impressed with how well they played as a team and how well disciplined they were. I did notice, hopefully it doesn't hurt them down the stretch, with how much they foul. They are very aggressive on defense so it causes quite a few fouls. Tonight it didn't hurt them because Clay probably shot 20% from the line. Fulcher can shoot, Simpson has a great all around game, and Wheeler is also a stud. They have 3-4 more guys who also can really play. Great team and I can't wait to see the run they makeLima Sr. 103
Josiah Fulcher leads the Spartans with 29. Jamir Simpson with 23.
