KENTON — For 22 of the 24 minutes of Friday night’s first half, there were glimpses of St. Marys regaining its confidence on the Western Buckeye League stage against the league’s recent gold standard.
A defensive stop, an interception, and a perfect lob pass for a touchdown gave St. Marys a lead. And down just one point midway through the second quarter, St. Marys had a chance to take the lead going into the half with the ball inside the Wildcat five yard line.
SIDNEY — In a rematch of last year’s division VI regional final, Minster defeated Lehman Catholic 41-13 at Sidney Memorial Stadium on Friday night.
The Wildcats now head into next Saturday night’s showdown against defending conference champion Delphos St. John’s with a 2-0 record.
FT. LORAMIE — New Bremen’s gameplan found roadblocks when three of its running backs went down to injury on Friday night against a tough Fort Loramie defense.
For Fort Loramie it was open highway in a Route 66 battle.
With a pair of touchdowns in the first half and three touchdowns in the fourth quarter allowed the Ft. Loramie Redskins to beat the Cardinals 34-0.
“They are a good football team,” New Bremen head coach Rob Messick said. “They just outmatched us physically up front and we just have to get better.”
Here's what filled up Sports Editor Brian Smith's notebook during the week in preparation for Week 2 of the high school football season.
