Wow.... what a game at Ontario tonight. Two of the best coaches in the league going at it. Staff from BV had those boys prepared and they went into O-arena and stole one. A lot of respect for Baloghs teams over the years but I felt he got out coached tonight. Anybody else at the game agree? Let BV hold the ball for about a minute down 2 points and by the time Ontario fouled there was only about 15-20 sec left? Both teams played physical fun game to watch. BV has some nice young players as does Ontario.
I was at the Hardin - Galion game. I'll have to admit, Harding is very, very good at little shirt pulls and swats at the ball when the ref isn't looking. I know it's all a part of the game, but, jeez..............oh, sure; Harding fans will say the same thing about the Tigers, but...........we all know better.
first half evenly called i thought, didn’t catch second half. down 1 going into 4th galion was. looks like harding just took over, harding plays good defense. and if that’s little shirt pulls that aren’t seen then not much you can say about it.
Ontario had a lot of bad fouls. Three players in foul trouble, that was their fault.
Ontario only made three 3-pointers which is normal. They missed A LOT of shots around the basket. A lot of bad passes and bad turnovers. Their Junior PG is not playing well. Making WAY to many turnover and mental errors. Now that Houle is playing they have 2 players who are better ball handlers, better shooters, better foul shooters, 4 to 8 inches taller and play more under control. I guess the down side is they'er a Freshman and a Soph playing his first game of the season.
BV made fewer mistakes, played sound defense and deserved the win. They're learning how to play without their injured players.
Ontario won the JV game by 7 after being up by 25. Ontario Freshman win 58-24
For playing in his first game Houle looked good. No mistakes, played within himself, a very good ball handler and defender for a 6-3 6-4 guard. Came off the bench, but was on the floor at crunch time at the end of the game. 2nd leading scorer in the game after Jones.
Yes. They also had two students killed in a car wreck on Wednesday afternoon.
Suprised they played BD, cancelled all the other games this week and weekend for good reasons. Been a rough week, glad boys and Gast could rally and get a big win for the 901. Today's game with Heath is cancelled.

Honestly I was a little surprised too gates. Perhaps they’re just running out of dates thanks to the weather. Sometimes though, as meaningless as sports are when compared to a tragedy like this, they can provide a little bit of healing. I know last nights score put a smile on my kid’s face.
I had heard that BV was trying to piece together a varsity roster dealing with injuries and had to tap into the lower teams to do. I had not heard of the student deaths.
A Sophmore and Freshman were killed on 257 Wednesday going home from school. Another freshman survived the crash with minor injuries. Her brother was the Sophmore who was killed in the accident. Had a vigil for them Thursday night at BV. Young ladies funeral is this afternoon and young mans is tomorrow. All home sports were cancelled for the week except MS games. Very proud of the boys going out and beating the leaders in the confrence and giving the 901 family a chance to smile this week because it's been all tears since the accident.
The difference maker, the biggest play of the game. A line drive 30 footer off the glass as the half time buzzer went of. Giving Pleasant a 4 point lead, instead of a 1 point lead going into the locker room.
Ontario's starting Junior PG was out for this game under concussion protocol. Their Freshman PG played all but a minute and a half of the game. Leading the team in scoring with 17. Making far fewer mistakes than the Junior PG. This game would not have been close if there wasn't a concussion protocol. JMO
Ontario wins Freshman game 47-28. Pleasant wins JV game 45 to 30.
Every time I get upset about the play of this JV team I have to remind myself that NONE of the 11 players on this team will ever see important minutes at the Varsity level, due to the 4 best Sophomores being Varsity players this year. Except for their Freshman PG. Who will be playing a lot of minutes on varsity next year as a Sophomore
