New Bremen had the state’s top-ranked team in Division IV frazzled in its own gym.
Carson Manger and Luke Schwieterman each had 20 points and the Cardinals put on a shooting clinic by hitting their final 12 fourth-quarter free throws in a 60-53 win over the No. 1-ranked Redskins on Friday night.
WAPAKONETA — Heading into the half-time break, St. Marys varsity coach Dan Hegemier watched his team play its heart out against the Wapakoneta Redskins and it showed on the scoreboard and on the stat sheets.
