Division IV: Orwell District
Last Year’s Orwell District Championship Game
2014: Cornerstone Christian 62 Maplewood 53

Cornerstone Christian outscored their opponents at Grand Valley last year by an average of 83-44. The Patriots fell in the Sweet 16 to St. Thomas Aquinas (58-37) but the run marked Cornerstone’s first playoff win since 2008 in the OHSAA Tournament.

Windham has won just as many Sectional titles (14) as McDonald has over the last 15 years. The Bombers have won more District championships than any area team with 8. Last year’s overtime loss (77-76) to Maplewood in District Semifinals marked the first time in three years that Windham was not in the District Championship matchup.

Since appearing in the Warren District Final in back-to-back campaigns (2011-12), Kennedy has not advanced to the District round in each of the past two seasons.

Maplewood has won the Sectional title in four of the last five seasons.

The Mustangs of Mathews have won at least one playoff game in four of the last five seasons which includes a pair of Sectional Championships (2010 & 2012).

Despite Bristol’s 2 wins in 2013, the Panthers have failed to post a win in the playoffs since 2010.

The Badger Braves have accumulated just one win in their last 9 trips to the post-season.

As hard as this is to believe, Southington has not won a playoff game since 2008.

Newbury’s last win came in 2011 when they knocked Bristol out of playoff competition, 47-43.

Ledgemont has not won a post-season contest since 2011. In their four playoff losses since then, the Redskins have averaged just 40.3 points.

Fairport Harding has posted four wins in the last three years. Prior to this win streak in the playoffs, the Skippers had failed to register a single win in their previous three appearances (2009-11).

Bloomfield is seeking their first playoff win since 2010.

Ashtabula St. John will be appearing in their first post-season since 2010. They’re looking for their first victory since 2008.
