This time of the high school basketball season, each team recognizes their senior cheerleaders, managers and players.

That was the case this past Saturday night at Columbus Academy as the school recognized five special players, Michael Hoffman, Austin Peterman, Collin Ricker, Jon Dillon and Megasportsnews.com intern Jeff Salamon.

All five of these players were in the starting lineups at the game’s beginning. But two of the were just glad to be a part of the team. Hoffman and Dillon both are captains and were top players at one time, but medical reasons have caused them to miss playing regularly. Dillon became the team’s manager.

Head coach Chris Jones decided to honor them with a start against the Panthers of Licking Valley in a Mid-State League Ohio Division game.

The Vikings of Academy started the game down 11-2. Coach Jones made substitutions and the team started its comeback and tied the game at 15 to end the first quarter.

Academy started to take control in the second quarter as Jacob Mikalov, a tall, wiry 6’7 inside player came into the game and caused matchup troubles for the Panthers who could not stop him from rebounding and scoring seven points.

The halftime score was 30-28 Academy.

Licking Valley, the seventh place teamĀ  in the Mid-State League, came alive and led at the end of three quarters, 43-41.

Academy finally took total control of the game in the fourth quarter as Zach Ratcliff scored 11 of the team’s 29 points and help salt the game away, 70-59.

There was a gesture of sportsmanship in the game by Licking Valley’s coach Todd Torbert saw that Jon Dillon had re-entered the game and had one of his players to foul him. Dillon, obviously a very popular student, stepped to the line with all of the student section screaming and calling his name out as he stepped to the free throw line with 35.8 seconds left and he sanked both free throws to the delight of fans.

It’ll be a night the seniors will remember for years to come.

With the win, the Vikings upped their record to 12-5, 8-4 and in 3rd place in the Mid-State League Ohio Division while Licking Valley dropped to 5-12, 3-9.

The ohcsports.com Player of the Game were Tim Eldridge of Columbus Academy and Hayden Ourant of Licking Valley.

Columbus Academy’s top scorers were Ratcliff with 17 points, Daniel Aronowitz knocked down 16, Mikalov with 15 and Eldridge with 10.

The Panthers had three players in double figures scoring led by Dyjon Bowers-Stoneking with 17 points followed by Ourant with 11 and Alex Ratai with 10.

The Northland Vikings honored their senior basketball players before playing Columbus East earlier in the week.

Getting a nice round of applause was Trey Burke, Lavonte Justice, Jakyl Cornley, Roberto Pierre and LaQuan Williams.

Also in the crowded gym were former Vikings stars, J.J. and Jared Sullinger.

The game was over before you knew it.

The Vikings were just too much for a scrappy East team who is short on depth and talent, winning 82-43.

Northland, who upped its record to 17-1, 13-0 in the City North Division, was up 4-0, and 24-6 at the end of the first quarter as East head coach Bob White used two timeouts to stop the bleeding. The Vikings used a fullcourt press and sticky defense to fuel their uptempo attack.

From there it was simply a rout, as Northland lead 48-17 at the half, 68-27 at the end of three quarters and basically just played sportsmanship in the fourth quarter by taking perimeter shots and head coach Satch Sullinger dug deep into his bench to play his reserves.

Trey Burke led the Vikings with 20, Devon Scott added 16, Kechaun Lewis knocked in 12 and Jaylen Benton scored 10.

Columbus East, who fell to a disappointing 2-17, 1-12 in the North Division, was led by Darius White with 13, Carnell Willoughby and Mycol Madison with nine points each and James Davis with 8.

Our ohcsports.com players of the game were Darius White of East and Trey Burke of Northland.

The Mifflin Punchers had their hands full with the East High Tigers Thursday night.

Mifflin needed a very strong fourth quarter to beat East for a second time this season, 69-61.

Earlier in the season at Mifflin, the Punchers held off the Tigers, 76-68.

The City North battle saw Mifflin go to 6-9 overall, 5-6.East drops to 2-15 overall, 1-10.

The East Tigers have two streaks going that they’d like to see go away in the wind. They have not won a game since defeating Linden 51-46 back on December 18 and have not won at home all season.

The game started out with Mifflin taking control early in the first quarter. Behind the play of Ashton Scott, the Punchers raced out to a 19-5 lead. But the Tigers playing good defense and solid rebounding settled down and went on a 12-0 run to end the opening quarter trailing just 19-17, while surviving a five turnover quarter.

James Davis at free throw line, had 20 points against Mifflin last night

In the second quarter, East kept on putting the pressure on Mifflin and had another solid quarter getting contributions from Terry Wilson to support James Davis. Wilson scored five points.

The halftime score was 33-33.

At the end of three quarters, Mifflin led 49-46.

The game was going to be decided in the fourth quarter by Mifflin. Up until then, the Tigers had held high-scoring point guard Percy Dean in check with only 10 points. But head coach Gene Caslin, put the game and ball in the hands of the lightning-quick and sharp-shooting guard Dean and let him take over the game, which he did. He scored 15 points on two, field goals and ten free throws. Everytime he got the ball, East fouled him.

East head coach Bob White

Dean ended up leading Mifflin with 25 points, Ashton Scott scored 14, Jonathan Roberts knocked in 11 and Alex Harris scored 10.

East, who just simply ran out of gas at the end of the game, was led by James Davis with 20, Mycol Madison with 10 points and Carnell Willoughby with 9.

The ohcsports.com Players of the Game were Ashton Scott of Mifflin and James Davis of East.

The Megasportsnews.com broadcast team will be back at East High School Friday night (tonight) as the Beechcroft Cougars visit at 7:00 pm.
