Playoff Notebook: Bertke learns from early-season picks, leads Flyers to state semis

November 20, 2011

WAPAKONETA -- Adam Bertke learned the hard way about letting an interception snowball 12 weeks ago.

Bertke threw three costly interceptions in the second half of the Flyers Week 1 13-7 overtime loss to Lima Shawnee. Marion Local head coach Tim Goodwin even pulled Bertke from that game.

Marion Local dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and used a touchdown on the final play of the first half as a springboard to a 28-0 win over Minster on Saturday night at Harmon Field in Wapakoneta.
