Submitted by trojan7 on Tue, 06/07/2022 - 22:34

First game of the season: Portsmouth 47, Waterford 44..........the Trojans trailed the Wildcats 32-21 at halftime, but Coach Eugene Collins decided to press Waterford after the break, and it was the difference in the game. WHS scored only 12 points after halftime, and Portsmouth forced 17 turnovers. 6-3 senior Kendal Reynolds came through with some clutch baskets/FT's in the final 2 minutes. PHS still trailed 38-32 going into the 4th quarter, but won the battle in the final frame 15-6.

The OVC Preview 2016-2017

The Portsmouth Trojans will start their 3rd season of Ohio Valley Conference play in 2016-2017. Last season, the Fairland Dragons won the conference crown with a perfect 14-0 league mark. Fairland returns all 5 starters from a year ago, plus several key players off the bench. The Dragons starting 5 were all sophomores a year ago, and still they advanced to the district finals where they lost to eventual regional champion Lynchburg Clay. FHS should be a prohibitive favorite to capture another OVC crown.

Kyre Allison Now All-Time Leading Scorer in PHS history--Update Feb.26,2016

The 2015-2016 season should be a memorable one from a historical standpoint. 6-2 senior point guard Kyre Allison, barring injury, should become the Trojans' all-time leading scorer. Currently, Craig Tubbs (1979) holds the top spot with 1,485 points. Allison, who currently has 1,167 points in his career, should pass Tubbs late in the 2015-2016 season. Kyre has started since he was a freshman, and against Logan his first season, scored 26 points, leading PHS to a win at LHS. Those 26 points tied Andrew Bendolph's freshman mark set in the 2008 season, when Bendolph scored his vs. Chillicothe.
