NEW KNOXVILLE -- Junior guard Jake Allen made New Knoxville's first game against St. Marys in more than 60 years something to remember.
Allen sliced into the lane and hit a runner with less than six seconds left to lift New Knoxville to a 43-42 comeback win over St. Marys on Saturday night.
When St. Marys guard Dustin Fisher's long heave from the right side clanked off the side of the iron, New Knoxville's bench cascaded onto the floor and mobbed Allen at mid-court.
"I think a new rivalry has started," Allen said after the game.
CANTON -- A Midwest Athletic Conference team flexed its muscle in a Division VI title game again and another overmatched opponent winced.
MASSILLON — The white screen-printed 34 on Christian Hauber’s Kirtland Hornets jersey is cracked and faded like a distressed t-shirt. Everyone else’s numbers are crisp and intact.
It’s no fashion statement, though. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound fullback earns every bit of the jersey’s degradation with a tough running style that has his team celebrating its first-ever state championship.
Kirtland captured the Division V state crown with a 28-7 win over Coldwater on Friday to cap a perfect 15-0 season.
