September 24, 2011

NEW BREMEN — The New Bremen Cardinals just couldn’t keep the Minster Wildcats in check and with a touchdown in each quarter the Wildcats defeated rival New Bremen 27-7 in front of a homecoming crowd at New Bremen.

“I thought we had opportunities on the field tonight to put them away and we didn’t get it done,” Minster head coach Nate Moore said. “The kids are a little disappointed that they didn’t put more points on the board, but New Bremen is a good team and had a good game plan.”

September 23, 2011

ST. MARYS — Ron Rose wasn’t born blind — a medical practice in the 1950s made him that way — but if there’s one thing he wishes he could do if he could see again, it’s drive a car.

Rose told the third-grade students in Joni Ahlers’ class at St. Marys Intermediate School he has driven a car once — but it almost got him in trouble — but if one day he woke up and wasn’t blind anymore, driving would be what he would want to do first.

St. Marys-Celina rises above records for teams

September 22, 2011

In this part of Ohio, there’s nothing quite like the St. Marys-Celina football rivalry.

Heated and contentious, a rivalry exists between two towns close in proximity and linked by a lake they can’t even agree on what to call. The result is two teams pouring a season’s worth of emotion into one game.

St. Marys (2-2, 1-2 WBL) will travel to Celina (0-4, 0-3 WBL) to face its rival for the 93rd time, hoping to regain the upper hand in a rivalry of which it  lost control for the first time in 12 years last fall.
