Big Game. Big Crowd. NW Ohio Ranked Teams. Undefeated Teams. Big Green.
Monday night Continental High was host for the Putnam County League matchup with Ottoville. A game with large ramifications in the League Champioinship (both teams entered the game undefeated) and Kalida District Tournament seeding. In the latest OSSCA Northwest Ohio Division III poll Continental was ranked 6 while Ottoville was ranked 9.
The game started the Big Green way as they put in the first goal of the game 5:57 seconds into the game. Neither team would score the rest of the half as a defensive struggle ensued. The second half had the Big Green hit the back of the net with 23:47 left on the clock to make it 2-0. That would be the final. Big Green 2, Pirates 0.
Continental had 4 shots on goal to Ottoville 6. Continental had the only corner kicks of the night with 3. Cody Auch had 2 saves for the Pirates while Konnor Knipp-Williams alos had 2 saves.
Continental is now 4-1-1 (0-1 PCL) and travels to Bryan on Thursday in a nonleague matchup. Ottoville improves to 8-0 (1-0 PCL).
