PHS Shootout

Driving to the rim, this Mason County player found his path blocked by a pair of Peebles Indians during some intense action at the June 18 Boys Shootout held at Peebles High School.

Peebles point guard Tanner Arey goes up between a trio of South Gallia defenders for the left handed score during action from the June 18 shootout at Peebles High School.

The northern part of Adams County was full of basketball action on June 18 as both the Peebles Indians and the North Adams Green Devils played host to Varsity Boys Basketball Shootouts.

A total of nine teams showed up in the two sites for a full day of hoops action, some traveling back and forth down Route 32 to get their games in. Besides the hosts Peebles and North Adams, the team participating included Western Latham, Huntington Ross, Portsmouth Clay, Mason County, South Gallia, Leesburg Fairfield, and Franklin Furnace Green.

The shootout rules were pretty par for the course, two 20-minute halves with a running clock, with shooting fouls being worth one point and one shot, and one plays worth three points, and all common fouls in the last minute becoming one and one situations.

In the day’s action, the Green Devils battled Huntington Ross, Western Latham, Portsmouth Clay, and Mason County. The Indians tangled with Franklin Furnace Green, Mason County, South Gallia, and Western Latham.

Perhaps the most intriguing match up of the day was when the Indians matched up with the Royals of Mason County, two power houses from opposite sides of the river. The shootout contest had the feel and intensity of a regular season game, with an involved crowd and coaches working the officials. In the end, the Royals hung on for a hard-fought 56-53 victory as the Indians gave them the proverbial “all they could handle.” The game left any thinking that a match up of these same two in the regular season over at the Fieldhouse in Maysville would be quite a spectacular night and a win-win situation for both schools.
