The Mansfield Christian Flames are prepping for a big weekend facing rival Mansfield St.Peter's on Friday in Mid Buckeye Conference play, then Plymouth on Saturday evening with both games on the road. MCS comes into the weekend at 6-3 in all games and 4-0 in the MBC, while the Spartans are 5-4 overall, 3-1 in conference play. Coach John Kurtz believes St.Peter's has become more of an athletic team especially since the Spartans lost their 6'10" post player Cole Phillips to injury.  Mansfield St.Peter's will also be trying to snap a three game slide when they take on the Flames falling to Sandusky St.Mary's Central. Catholic. 65-55, East Knox 56-55 and Tiffin Calvert 62-57. The Flames will be looking to extend their two game winning streak this weekend to four after wins over Calvert 62-42 and Loudonville 55-51. Both MCS and St.Peter's have had limited practice time this week due to weather conditions and schools being closed earlier this week. On Saturday, the Flames will have to deal with state ranked Plymouth. After an opening season loss to Buckeye Central, the Big Red have won eight straight to stand at 8-1 overall and 6-0 in the Firelands Conference. Plymouth will be at 2-7, 0-5 Monroeville in conference play on Friday night. Plymouth, Mansfield St.Peter's, Mansfield Christian and for that matter 9-1, 4-1 Buckeye Central of the NCC who beat Plymouth 63-49, will all be at the same sectional in Division IV at Ontario the week beginning February 24th.
