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.

Minster opens playoffs with 48-7 win

November 3, 2012

 

MINSTER — The Minster defense stonewalled the Tri-County North wing-T offense,  quarterback Adam Niemeyer delivered a handful of touchdown passes and the Wildcat running backs had four-foot wide holes to run through all night long.

For one week of the playoffs, the Minster Wildcats made it look easy.

The degree of difficulty goes way up next week when the Wildcats face the Division VI defending state champions.

50 Years Ago This Week – 1962

This week in 1962, the St. Marys Roughriders concluded their high school football campaign with a 28-20 loss to the Wapakoneta Redskins.  

In the early-going, it looked as if the Riders would have little trouble as they received the opening kickoff and scored in only seven plays when Ronnie Jones bulled in from one yard away.  

PLAYOFF FOOTBALL: Minster hosts 1st home playoff game Friday

November 1, 2012

MINSTER — Minster showed the last two postseasons that it can go on the road and win a Week 11 playoff game, twice coming back from Springfield Catholic Central with wins.

The Wildcats won’t need to prove it again.

The Minster football team will host the school’s first-ever home playoff game on Friday when Tri-County North comes to town in a Division VI, Region 24 semi-final.
