PC boys now 3-0 in SBC

After a five games in an eight-night stretch, the Port Clinton Redskins have now completed the first six games of the regular season at 3-3. However, all of their wins have been against Sandusky Bay Conference opponents and they head into this Friday’s road game at Sandusky St. Marys with a perfect 3-0 record in the conference.
The Redskins went 3-2 for the past five, recording wins over Edison, Oak Harbor and Margaretta. They were beaten by Tiffin Columbian and Woodmore.

“It was interesting to play that many games in so few days this early in the season,” said PC Coach Troy Diels on Monday. “The thing that stuck out to me was how well the kids prepared for each opponent in such a short time span. We didn’t have a lot of time to prepare, but the kids did very well executing what we wanted to do.”
What about being 3-3 at this point in the season and 3-0 in the SBC?
“I am pleased with where we are,” said Diels. “It is a good start to build off of and I still do not think we have reached our ceiling yet. We have some things that we can still improve upon and now hopefully we can do that with the practice time that we are given in the next few weeks.”
The Redskins have found one constant in their game up to this point in the season. They do not rely on any one player for offense.
“We have been very unselfish so far on offense and I really like to see that,” the coach said. “We have been going to the hot hand in each game which says a lot about the kids.” And defensively?
“We have had lapses on defense, but it seems like when we have needed big stops we have been able to get them. I am very pleased with where we are on the defensive end because I feel like we have thrown a lot at them so early in the season.”
The Redskins meet Sandusky St. Mary’s on the road this Friday night in a game right before Christmas.
“We are always looking to guard against distractions,” said, speaking of Santa Claus. “We will work hard with the hours that we have during this stretch.”
St. Mary’s will provide quite a challeng.
“They have a couple of big guys and a lot of shooters to surround them with,” Diels said. “Alex Opfer is their point guard and averages 18 points per game. They have one of the best young players in the league back in Denarius Harris. It should be a very competitive game this Friday.”
