The past week, I covered three high school basketball games:
Tuesday – Monessen at Washington boys;
Thursday – Canon-McMillan at Peters Township girls;
Friday – Canon-McMillan at Peters Township boys.
Going into each game, I believed the winners would be Monessen, Peters Township girls and Canon-McMillan boys. The winners were Washington, Canon-McMillan girls and Peters Township boys.
As someone posted earlier today, maybe I'm creating a new sports jinx. After praising Monessen on this site, the Greyhounds lost. After praising the C-M boys, the Big Macs lost.
No matter, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed all three games. They were well-played, tense and the boys games had fantastic crowds. It's amazing what happens to a high school team when a packed house is in attendance. The atmosphere at the C-M vs. PT boys game was the best I've seen at a local high school hoops game in years.
Here's hoping it keeps up.
