The St. Marys and Celina boys soccer teams will meet again — and this time someone will walk away a winner.
Celina beat Kenton 2-0 on Monday night in a sectional semifinal match at Ryan Field in Wapakoneta to advance to Thursday evening’s sectional championship game against the Roughriders.
St. Marys and Celina played to a scoreless tie in the regular season as well as a scoreless tie during the 2012 season. The two teams last played in a tournament match in 2007, when Celina won 2-0 in a sectional championship game.
The Western Buckeye League and Midwest Athletic Conference each have a team atop divisions in the latest Associated Press football poll.
Marion Local is the top-ranked team in Division VII. The unbeaten Flyers face the second-ranked team in Division V Coldwater on Friday.
Kenton is still the top team in Division IV. The Wildcats lead the WBL with a 6-0 league mark.
CELINA — When people tell Eric Lochtefeld his light show is part of their Christmas or Halloween tradition, he said he laughs.
“Because this is the third year,” he said, noting it is only the second year for the Halloween display of lights.
Yet, when he was a few days behind putting his lights up last year, that’s what he heard from people asking him when the program would be up, and letting him know they brought their grandchildren and came every year.
ST. MARYS – When senior Kristen Dammeyer took up cross country this fall, she was joining a veteran St. Marys girls cross country team with high hopes for 2013.
Dammeyer and the Riders fulfilled those aspirations on Saturday with a second-place finish and a four-place improvement from last year’s WBL championship meet.
The senior-led St. Marys girls cross country team had six runners finish in the top 22 as the Roughriders captured second place on their home course at the WBL meet at the course near Memorial High School.
NEW KNOXVILLE — The New Knoxville/Washington Township Fire Department won top honors in the extrication competition they hosted on Saturday, pulling two Rescue Randy mock victims from the back seat of an SUV after removing the doors using the jaws of life.

ST. MARYS — Defiance quarterback Will Batt refused to let his team lay down when the Bulldogs found themselves down by 17 points to St. Marys midway through the third quarter on Friday night.
“I got into my team,” said Batt, who rushed for three touchdowns. “I told them this is my senior year and we’re not losing this game. We’re winning out. I just got on them.”
The Bulldogs responded, handing St. Marys the latest gut-punching loss in an 0-7 season that’s had so many close calls.
