50 Years Ago This Week – 1962

Fifty years ago this week, the St. Marys Roughriders concluded the 1962 football campaign by nearly upsetting the Western Buckeye League champion, Lima Shawnee Indians. 

In a mud-caked mess, the first quarter came and went without any activity on the scoreboard.  That all changed in the second period when St. Marys received a punt from Shawnee and returned it 25 yards to the 10-yard line. 

Minster plays Marion Local for third straight playoffs

November 8, 2012

MINSTER — Just three years ago the notion that Minster and Marion Local would become a running playoff football rivalry seemed unlikely.

The Flyers have been a model of consistency over the past 15 seasons, racking up five state championships between stints in Divisions V and VI. Minster, meanwhile, was mired in a stretch of six straight seasons without a winning record and just two seasons with a winning record in the previous 13 seasons before Nate Moore took over in 2010. Marion Local had won 11 of the last 12 meetings against Minster heading into 2010.
