Port Charlotte ready for second crack at #1 seed Palmetto
CHARLOTTE -- A 10-1 record competing in one of the toughest districts in the State. On Friday, Port Charlotte looks to go to 8-0 on the road, and assure themselves an opportunity to compete for a regional title.
“I know we have gotten a lot better since we last played them, and I’m sure they have too,” Ingman said.
Under Jordan Ingman, Port Charlotte riding a seven game win streak, as they prepare to play the number one seed, Palmetto. You could argue, another team with a slight advantage.
“Probably eight games when we stepped on the field the other team was bigger, faster,” Ingman said.
So what is the secret for the Pirates.
“They care about the name on the front of the chest more than the one on the back, and anytime you got that it is a fun group of kids to coach,” Ingman said.
“We have heart, and grind out the season. To win the last game we never gave up and pushed everything forward,” Luther said.
Solomon Luther, one of 22 seniors on Ingman's squad, has been it since the beginning. This year, the Pirates have scratched, and clawed, keeping themselves in every game.
“We have won six games this year by six points of less,” Ingman said.
For Luther, and the rest of his Pirate teammates: “I got to do what I got to do, just execute and play hard,”
Can the Port Charlotte knock off the number one seed in the Class? Or will the Tigers march on to the regional final? 7;30 p.m kickoff at Harlee Stadium in Palmetto.
