PG’s Johnson headlines All-PCL list as Player of the Year

Pandora Gilboa Junior Drew Johnson and PG Head Coach Joe Braidic were tabbed Sunday as the Putnam County League Player and Coach of the Year respectively as they led the Rockets to their third PCL title in school history and first since 2009 as they finished with a 16-6 regular season campaign and went 6-1 in league competition.

Braidic who is in his third term as the head of the boys program at PG picked up his second win for the top mentor in the league. In 2008 Braidic was honored for the first time as he guided his Rockets to their first PCL crown.

Joining Johnson on the 1st team this season were Seniors Wade Stauffer of Continental, and Grant Schroeder of Leipsic. Juniors Mark Kuhlman of Miller City and Logan Kemper of Ottoville joined with Johnson to make it three underclassmen in this seasons top five vote getters.

2nd team selections included a future St. Francis Cougar football player in Columbus Grove Senior Rece Roney, who was honored alongside four Juniors in Miller City’s Jacob Kuhlman, Ottoville’s Nick Moorman, Brandon Wehri of Fort Jennings, and Pandora Gilboa Sophomore Jared Breece.

Continental outlasts PG

Continental and Pandora Gilboa traded leads early in the game but the Pirates 20-0 run over the second and third quarter propelled them past the Rockets and to their 4th PCL win of the season 48-37 Thursday night.

Three lead changes took place in the first quarter as each team scratched and clawed their way to 9 first quarter points. With the score tied at 6-6 midway through the stanza, Continental pulled ahead at 9-6 when Trevor Williamson connected on a three pointer from the wing. Pandora Gilboa responded on their next possession with a two pointer and a subsequent free throw to send the game deadlocked into the next quarter.

6’5 Senior Colin Fenstermaker opened the second quarter with a score for the Rockets to give them an 11-9 lead. Unfortunately for the visitors it would be their last score for 7:44 of game action until a third quarter basket by Fenstermaker brought their 13th point of the game.

Over the same 7:44 Continental would go on a 20-0 run keyed by 7 points from Trevor Williamson and 4 from Gabe Williams to push the lead to 31-11 at the 6:16 mark of the 3rd.

Entering the final stanza of play the Rockets found themselves trailing 41-19 but never gave up. PG found themselves within 10 points at 45-35 but with just 34.3 seconds remaining on the clock as they outscored the Pirates 16-4 to that point in the quarter. Continental would muster just 7 points in the period but it would be enough as Gabe Williams connected on 3/4 free throws, including a pair with 29.9 seconds left to help his team hold on until the final buzzer by a 48-37 margin.

The Pirates were led in scoring by Trevor Williamson with 19, and get to 6-13 overall with the win. Continental finishes the PCL part of their schedule at 4-3, and will play host to Patrick Henry (7-13) Friday night to end the regular season.

Pandora Gilboa sees their season record fall to 3-18 overall and 0-7 in Putnam County League play. The Rockets will travel to Findlay on Friday night to take on Liberty Benton in BVC play to end the regular season.
