SIDNEY — Those pesky final few yards of the red zone proved to be the St. Marys football team’s undoing in a 19-16 season-opening loss at Sidney.
St. Marys’ offense had first and goal situations three times on Friday night and emerged with only three points in those trips. The Roughriders’ most excruciating failure to convert came in the game’s closing minutes, as St. Marys had the potential game-winning touchdown pass slip through its hands on fourth and goal from the three yard line.
ALLEN EAST 28, NEW BREMEN 13
NEW BREMEN — Behind three touchdowns from Ross Stewart the Allen East Mustangs pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 28-13 victory over the New Bremen Cardinals in the opening game of the season Friday night at New Bremen.
“Ross is our workhorse,” Mustangs head coach Mike Abbey said. “There is no doubt about it. He was able to get loose a few times and we needed his running.”
Stewart had 175 yards rushing to go with the three touchdowns.

ST. MARYS — “Stand out in life, but blend together in music” — this mantra was written on a poster that hung on the walls in the band room at Memorial High School ever since senior Evan Bader, 17, was a freshman.
Bader has been blending since fifth grade, when he decided to join band. Watching football games when he was younger and seeing the band out on the field pushed Bader to be a part of that group, which a lot of his friends were doing, too.
