ST. MARYS 3, BATH 0
LIMA — The St. Marys volleyball team has completely turned around its season . Thursday night’s road win was just more proof of that transformation.

After losing their first five matches of the season, St. Marys (5-8, 3-1 WBL) has now won three straight in WBL play.

Ottawa-Glandorf won a three-set first doubles match to tilt things the Titan way against St. Marys in a Western Buckeye League girls tennis match on Monday. O-G’s 3-2 win is its first in the league this season, while St. Marys dropped to 1-7 in the WBL with a home match against Kenton tonight left on the WBL slate.
A pair of ties to Bulldogs — of the Elida and Celina variety — kept the St. Marys boys soccer team from celebrating a Western Buckeye League title last season.
St. Marys already beat Elida earlier this fall on its quest to get the championship . With Monday night’s win over Bath, the Riders have given themselves a chance to flip the script against Celina, too.
St. Marys (7-1-1) stayed perfect in Western Buckeye League play heading into Thursday night’s rivalry game against Celina with a 3-0 victory over the Bath Wildcats on Monday.
KENTON — With 66 points lighting up Kenton’s side of the scoreboard by the end of the night, it was hard to fathom that there was a point on Friday that Kenton’s offense looked a bit frazzled.
Kenton quarterback Grant Sherman shook off a slow start and then threw for 460 yards and seven touchdowns while wideout Justin Sawmiller had a monster day receiving and in the return game in Kenton’s runaway 66-14 win over St. Marys at Robinson Field.
MINSTER 41, NEW BREMEN 20
NEW BREMEN — It was lightning that struck at New Bremen Friday night but it wasn’t the kind that would delay a game. It was the running and passing of the Minster Wildcats as they defeated the Cardinals 41-20 in a Midwest Athletic Conference opener.
The Wildcats used the running of Sam Dues and Jacob Stechschulte and the passing of Josh Nixon to get up early.
