HS FB Playoff NotebooK: Turf game puts a spring in Minster's step

November 9, 2011

MINSTER — Playing last week at Springfield made getting hit a little more painful than usual for the Minster Wildcats.

Minster rolled  to a 48-13 win over Catholic Central,  but a couple Wildcats said at times hitting the ground was the most physical part of the game on a field left almost barren of grass from flooding.

“At Springfield, you fall on the ground on your knees and it hurts,” Minster’s Ryan Bornhorst said. “It’s almost like falling on concrete. It was dirt with patches of grass.”

Deja Vu: Minster faces Springfield Catholic Central again in playoff opener

November 5, 2011

MINSTER — The good news in playing a Springfield Catholic Central team that is largely unchanged from a season ago when a 5-5 Minster squad stunned the top-seeded Irish is that the Wildcats knows what to expect.

“I think it helps having played them before,” Minster head coach Nate Moore said on Tuesday. “It’s kind of a been-there, done-that thing. We’ve been to their place and seen what the locker room is like, what the field is like. All those little things about going to new place? We don’t have to deal with those.”
