The Colonel Crawford boys basketball team will try to win their second straight Division IV district title on Friday evening at Willard at 7pm.  Should they do it, it will be at the cost of another local team, Plymouth.  The Big Red comes into the game riding an eight game winning streak and earned their way back to the final downing another NCC team in Buckeye Central 43-37.  The Bucks had also beaten Plymouth back at the beginning of the season.

Both Crawford and Plymouth met back on December 29, with the Eagles coming out on top 55-48.  Crawford Coach David Sheldon, says the Big Red is playing with much more confidence now.  He also adds that the Eagles will have to contain the likes of Tyrell Edminston and Jerimiah Crager who scored 12 and 11 points against Buckeye.   The Eagles will counter with Aaron Adams who had 17 and Connor McCreary who scored a game high 28 points in C.Crawford's 70-65 win over Norwalk St.Paul on Tuesday evening in the semifinal.

The two team met last year in the D-4 district semifinal at Willard with Crawford coming out on top 43-38.  Plymouth comes in at 14-11, the Eagles 19-5.  C.C. is playing for their third district championship since 2009, while Plymouth is looking for their first district title since winning back-to-back championships in 2009 and '10.
