trojandave is on a distinguished road
Portsmouth was even with Gallia Academy after 1 quarter, 19-19, but after that the Blue Devils completed dominated the Trojans en route to a 76-50 win at GAHS. It was probably Portsmouth's poorest defensive effort of the season, as Gallia Academy scored layup after layup to build an insurmountable lead. 7 foot sophomore Zach Loveday scored 15 points for GAHS, while DJ Eley pitched in 13 for Portsmouth.

Despite the loss, Portsmouth is still a good 9-5 on the season, and 4-4 in the OVC. The Trojans' 4 losses have come to 2 state ranked D2 schools, Fairland and Gallia Academy, and the other three have come against 2 loss Wheelersburg and 10-4 Coal Grove (twice). Those 4 schools have a total of only 10 losses.

Portsmouth will travel to Chesapeake on Tuesday in another OVC contest. The Trojans tripped up the Panthers 69-63 at PHS 10 days earlier, so this should be a real battle for PHS to get the win.
