A pair of Clarence Cannon Conference teams play Class 3 sectionals at MACC Wednesday on KTCM. The sixth-ranked Monroe City boys meet 25-3 Richmond in the second game. After the Panthers won their fourth straight district championship Saturday, coach Brock Edris scouted Richmond at Chillicothe.
Richmond outlasted Chillicothe 53-52 for its first district title in 48 years. 26-2 Monroe City looks to snap a three-game sectional losing streak at MACC. Edris provides the keys.
Monroe City played Milan at MACC February 1st and won 61-41.
The 22-4 Macon Tigerettes enter sectionals riding a 17-game winning streak and haven’t lost a game since December 27th. The Chillicothe Lady Hornets have won six in a row and sit 20-7. Back on December 17th, Macon beat Chillicothe 67-52, but it was a four-point game in the fourth quarter. Macon coach Richard Driscoll puts a heavy emphasis on playing good defense, but his gameplan doesn’t stop there.
Chillicothe coach Darren Smith had similar keys to victory.
Macon’s offense averages seven more points per game this season, but Chillicothe’s defense gives up three points less. Macon defeated fourth-ranked Palmyra 58-49 in the District 13 Championship. Chillicothe won District 14 with a 37-31 victory over Trenton.
Coverage of Class 3 sectionals from MACC starts at 6:15pm on Glory 97 and centralmoinfo.com. Regional Radio’s Eric Duick and Austin Ward have the call.
