WAPAKONETA — The St. Marys boys soccer team ended half a decade of postseason frustration with the help of a quick early strike.
Brennan Brown scored 18 seconds into the match, Zac Nelson added a goal on a direct kick and St. Marys held off Elida in a frantic final four minutes to earn a 2-1 win on Thursday in a Division II sectional final at Wapakoneta.

CELINA — When a team scores a goal in the first 30 seconds, it’s a pretty good sign.
The St. Marys girls soccer team scored its first goal 29 seconds into the match and rode that momentum to a 5-1 victory over the Van Wert Cougars in the Division II sectional soccer tournament at Celina.
The Riders (13-3-1) will now play Celina next Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Celina in a district semifinal match.
