Will be checking in periodically with updates. Can't live blog...but will try to post updates after each quarter.

Feel free to use the comment section during the game.
Update #1 (1:39pm) - Teams out for warmups....exciting time. Pep bands are making noise...and I'm right next to former Orrville girls coach Marcie Alberts and Ray Jeske, doing the game for ESPN 990 out of Massillon.
Update #2 - Riders will be in their home white jerseys...Ready in their road blue. Almost game time.
Update #3 - Ready leads 13-9 after 1 quarter. Orrville getting screened and back-cut a lot. Good start, but need to get Wasson involved more.
Update #4 - Orrville leads 21-20 at halftime. Jake sat out the final 4 minutes of the 2nd quarter with 2 fouls...and Zach twisted his ankle. Looks to be ok. That being said, the kids are playing tough against a very physical Ready team. Sam Miller has 8 pts to lead the Riders.
Update #5 - Got a little too into the game....Riders went on a run and led 32-23 and 35-27 after 3 quarters, but Ready has stormed back..tieing the game at 37. Orrville took a timeout.
Update #6 - The Ready lead got to 5 (42-37), but the Riders have answered, taking back the lead by 2, 44-42. Three minutes to go.
Update #7 - What a finish...Riders win 50-48. They will play in the school's 4th state title game on Saturday morning. 10:45am against Lima Central.
