STRUTHERS, OH- For many, Struthers Fieldhouse will forever be remembered for the events that have been hosted in its time, but on Friday night, the historic building served as home to another set of memories for many as Poland and Struthers played in an instant classic inside the CatHouse. Poland rallied to force overtime and later prevailed on a Michael Cougras layup that sealed a 57-56 NE8 victory.
This was Struthers’ first loss of the season.
Cougras would finish with 19- a game-high on either side of the sideline, while teammate Adam Kassem supplemented with a dozen points.
For Struthers, Brandon Washington and Carson Ryan continued to be steady for the Wildcats. Ryan led the way with 15, while Washington had 13. Week 2 YSN/Baird Brothers Big Dog of the Valley, Trey Metzka had 8.
Poland (4-2) will now host Lakeview on Tuesday, while Struthers (6-1) will host South Range. Both games will be available on YSN if you can’t make it in person.
