HS FB Playoff NotebooK: Turf game puts a spring in Minster's step

November 9, 2011

MINSTER — Playing last week at Springfield made getting hit a little more painful than usual for the Minster Wildcats.

Minster rolled  to a 48-13 win over Catholic Central,  but a couple Wildcats said at times hitting the ground was the most physical part of the game on a field left almost barren of grass from flooding.

“At Springfield, you fall on the ground on your knees and it hurts,” Minster’s Ryan Bornhorst said. “It’s almost like falling on concrete. It was dirt with patches of grass.”
