CELINA — Bobby Kennedy ended Dan Kanfoush’s reign as holder of the Governor’s Cup, halting years of frustratingly close finishes.
Kennedy won via tiebreaker over four-time Governor’s Cup and three-time defending champion Kanfoush this weekend at the hydroplane racing event on Grand Lake St. Marys.
Kennedy has finished second to his younger cousin Brandon in 2008 and often to Kanfoush.
ST. MARYS — The St. Marys football team welcomed Doug Frye’s return to the home sideline of Skip Baughman Stadium with big play after big play, as the Roughriders outscored Urbana 41-7 in a little over a half of timed football on Friday night in the annual Chicken Bowl.
Eric Spicer scampered in from three yards out to cap the drive after Spicer ripped off 33 yards earlier in the drive on a counter down the right sideline.

Eddie George talks about the 2014 Ohio State Buckeyes.
Old refrigerators, pieces of scrap metal from area farms, schools and homes along with the more large-scale donations of some local industry all added up to a big boost for football players of all ages in St. Marys.
The Roughrider Touchdown Club raised more than $7,100 during a recent scrap metal drive. That comes out to more than 50,000 pounds of scrap metal from more than 80 families and companies around St. Marys. St. Marys varsity football players helped move the heavy scrap a large metal containter that was filled once and was filled up a second time.
Michael Schmitmeyer, a Memorial High Schol grad and former University of Findlay standout golfer, won his fourth East of Chicago Golf Championship on Sunday in dramatic fashion.

Going into the 17th hole Schmitmeyer held a 2-up lead, but Veith won both the 17th and 18th holes.
