WAPAKONETA -- Adam Bertke learned the hard way about letting an interception snowball 12 weeks ago.
Bertke threw three costly interceptions in the second half of the Flyers Week 1 13-7 overtime loss to Lima Shawnee. Marion Local head coach Tim Goodwin even pulled Bertke from that game.
That benching and that lesson carried over.
WAPAKONETA -- Forced to abandon its usually-reliable running game against a Marion Local opponent that is no stranger to late November playoff football, the Minster Wildcats' postseason run came to an end in the Division VI regional title game for the second straight season.
Marion Local dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and used a touchdown on the final play of the first half as a springboard to a 28-0 win over Minster on Saturday night at Harmon Field in Wapakoneta.
