CELINA — Celina’s defensive pressure took its toll midway through the second half, as a physically and mentally fatigued St. Marys squad turned the ball over and watched the Bulldogs turn the miscues into points.
Celina wore down the Roughriders and pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 71-52 win at a packed Celina Fieldhouse on Friday night. It’s the seventh straight win for Celina over St. Marys, a winning streak that dates back to 2005.

ST. MARYS — Celina quickly took any drama out of a rivalry game by scoring the game’s first 28 points in the Bulldogs’ 48-17 win over St. Marys.
“That might be one of our best starts ever,” Celina head coach Brian Stetler said. “You never know on the road how you’re going to come out against an arch-rival. Our girls stepped it up in the beginning and pretty much set the tone early. It doesn’t always happen that way, but it did tonight.”

ST. MARYS — An NBA All-Star Weekend 3-point shooting contest it was not, but the Bath boys basketball team left St. Marys Memorial High School still tied for the Western Buckeye League lead.

The Wildcats sewed up a 56-37 win over the Roughriders early in the second half with another showcase of energy on defense and on the offensive glass that makes Bath a league title contender this winter.
