If I'm not mistaken, that guarantees Metamora at least a tie for the M.I. Championship. And eliminates Washington from contention.
You are correct.
Metamora is conference champs. Win or lose against Morton, Metamora comes out on top.

Re: Mid-Illini Expectations

Peoria area regional Is packed with great teams. Tough wins. I will say that a Peoria area team will win the Bradley Sectionals.

The only team in the area that has a good run to super sectional is Morton. Biggest game would be Morton and SHG.

Re: Morton Shootout

Was at the Morton Shootout yesterday. Watched Notre Dame/Washington. Saw the Irish had a couple players out, however hard to believe that any high school team starting three 6’8” players couldn’t score more than 38 points. When opposing team holds the ball because they can’t compete with the defens...

Re: Pekin Insurance Holiday Tournament #56 (2021)

When was the last time Pekin didn’t play in the Hawkins gym. This will hurt the cash flow of the tournament.

Re: November 30th Mid Illini scores

I gave them credit where credit was due. The coaching doesn't seem to be the problem the lack of talent in basketball seems to be the problem.

Even though Metamora went 1-3 in the tournament, I believe they have a solid team. The tournament was a great learning experience for them and they will be hard to beat. By the way, hats off to Kankakee for playing in the tournament with some players up north handling business. Especially when four ...

Re: IHSA Mask Policy

I’ve been to 13 games so far. I’ve seen one player with a mask, a couple of coaches, a couple officials and a very very small amount of fans by the hundreds. By day 2 you were lucky if you saw anyone wearing a mask. Today no one was wearing one and no mask timeout.

Re: Mid-Illini Expectations

Minus Lewis and playing the number 1 team in Illinois, I thought Washington did great. The Duke kid was great. All games yesterday were good, even Metamora.

Getting ready to go back up now.

Instead of dribbling and passing they continued to shoot and make silly fouls. Result was Dunlap lost I...

Re: 2021 predictions?

Pekin should be decent, kind of bummed they don't get to play a full season. Last fall they were suppose to play Peoria Central - that would have been a very interesting game. Dragons have a very good QB coming back (Van Ness) along with some skill and linemen. I would assume Washington, Metamora, ...

I don’t believe there are any stand out teams. I will say Pekin at the top. Perhaps Washington second.

I just hope for a season. Heck, I’m not sure basketball will happen. Perhaps I’m being to negative.

Re: Mid-Illini 2019-20

Well 'great season' is in the eyes of the beholder! :) I agree, it was an interesting season in that four teams throughout the season were vying for the title. And there were some upsets and tight games between the top teams and lower teams. But 'great' as far as talent and quality teams was not a ...
