CELINA — When a team scores a goal in the first 30 seconds, it’s a pretty good sign.
The St. Marys girls soccer team scored its first goal 29 seconds into the match and rode that momentum to a 5-1 victory over the Van Wert Cougars in the Division II sectional soccer tournament at Celina.
The Riders (13-3-1) will now play Celina next Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Celina in a district semifinal match.

One team’s long wait for a first victory will end on Friday when the St. Marys football team treks north to venerable Egress Stadium in Van Wert to face the Cougars.

The Roughriders scored their initial touchdown late in the opening period after receiving a punt near midfield. On the third play of the series, Terry Young ripped through an opening in the offensive line and raced for the 50-yard touchdown. Tom Hollman’s PAT run was a success, and the Roughriders were in charge 8-0.
