ST. MARYS — Hundreds of local residents came together to help battle cancer as part of an annual fundraiser.
The St. Marys Tailgate for Cancer took over the Eagles parking lot this weekend. There was a stage set up for the event’s live entertainment, and TSC in St. Marys provided a large TV screen featuring the OSU football game versus California.
Shortly after the event started Saturday afternoon, several people were already there sporting their red OSU gear and watching the Akron/Michigan football game.
KENTON — With 66 points lighting up Kenton’s side of the scoreboard by the end of the night, it was hard to fathom that there was a point on Friday that Kenton’s offense looked a bit frazzled.
Kenton quarterback Grant Sherman shook off a slow start and then threw for 460 yards and seven touchdowns while wideout Justin Sawmiller had a monster day receiving and in the return game in Kenton’s runaway 66-14 win over St. Marys at Robinson Field.
MINSTER 41, NEW BREMEN 20
NEW BREMEN — It was lightning that struck at New Bremen Friday night but it wasn’t the kind that would delay a game. It was the running and passing of the Minster Wildcats as they defeated the Cardinals 41-20 in a Midwest Athletic Conference opener.
The Wildcats used the running of Sam Dues and Jacob Stechschulte and the passing of Josh Nixon to get up early.

ST. MARYS — An annual fundraiser to help combat cancer swings into full gear today.
The St. Marys Tailgate for Cancer kicked off Friday night with a preview show in the St. Marys Eagles parking lot. Today’s festivities start with a 5K at 9 a.m., and will feature entertainment throughout the course, said Traci Lauth, co-owner of TLC and St. Marys Tailgate for Cancer committee member.
No one would ever call Kenton’s offense an afterthought, but while the Wildcats’ five-wide no-hold’s barred passing attack is still one of the country’s most prolific it’s the defense that has perhaps been most impressive through two weeks of the 2013 season.
Kenton’s defense held defending Division V state champion Coldwater to two points in the season opener. A week later, they shut out Wapakoneta for three quarters before giving up two fourth-quarter touchdowns when the game was already decided in a 52-16 rout.

LIMA — The St. Marys girls soccer team went on the road twice for key Western Buckeye League matches in the Lima area and twice used the same formula to emerge with wins: get up early and then hold on.
The Roughriders jumped out to a two-goal halftime lead on Bath in the first-half torrential rain and held on as the Wildkittens a late goal and peppered the goal with shots in the final two minutes. St. Marys’ 2-1 win is its fourth straight win.
NEW BREMEN — Two local schools went on a low-level lock down, controlling access to the doors Thursday morning after a runaway juvenile from New Bremen reportedly took a vehicle and a shotgun and rifle from his grandparents’ house in Shelby County.
