Local Sports Sports Stories

PHILO, Ohio – Seven hundred twenty eight days.

That’s how long it’s been since the Philo boys have won a game against a Muskingum Valley League opponent, a 51-38 win over Maysville on February 2nd, 2019.

The team has come within a fingertip’s grasp of multiple wins this season, including two losses where the opponent’s go-ahead score occurred with less than five seconds left in overtime.

Saturday night, the Electrics would have another chance to finally end the drought when they welcomed the 4-10 Crooksville Ceramics to the Power Plant for an MVL inter-divisional matchup.

FINAL: CROOKSVILLE 61 – PHILO 79
