BATH TOWNSHIP — St. Marys couldn’t stop Bath quarterback Doug Sanders in the Wildcats’ 50-28 win over the Roughriders on Friday night.
Not as Bath built a 29-0 lead.
Not when St. Marys needed a stop to continue its improbable second-half comeback attempt.
Sanders threw for 269 yards and rushed for 192 yards in Bath’s topsy-turvy victory. When Bath’s defense struggled to hold a lead in the second half, Sanders responded with touchdown runs of 61 and 31 yards in the fourth quarter.
ST HENRY — What started to look like a blowout when the Minster Wildcats scored twice in the first six minutes of the game, turned into something else altogether.
St. Henry came back and won a Midwest Athletic Conference 35-21 victory.
“We stuck to the plan and give credit to our kids for not folding, they could have easily folded there at 14-0 with Minster having all the momentum,” said St. Henry coach Jeff Starkey. “It was great by our kids just hanging in there.”
NEW BREMEN – For the first time in a year and a half the New Bremen football team is able to celebrate a victory.
The Cardinals scored touchdowns in the second and fourth quarters to defeat the Parkway Panthers 13-6 in front of a homecoming crowd to snap a 15-game losing streak that dated back to the 2010 season.

New Bremen's other score came on a Garrett Westerbeck to Justin Heitkamp nine-yard touchdown pass.
CELINA — Celina emerged from a Western Buckeye League struggle with Wapkoneta with a 24-21 win.
