WAPAKONETA —It was only fitting that the game ended with a kick after the major role special teams played in Friday night’s state semifinal contest.
Minster watched, pleaded, prayed as Tinora kicker Josh Camp’s 27-yard field goal attempt in the final seconds of Friday night’s Division VI state semifinal football game drifted wide left. The miss assured the Wildcats of a 14-13 win over previously-unbeaten Tinora and locked in a berth in the state championship game next Friday at the Horseshoe.

PIQUA — Minster football is headed to the state semifinals for the first time since that charmed year of 1989, when the Wildcats won the school’s lone state football championship.
The Wildcats won a Division VI regional title with a 35-0 romp over West Liberty-Salem at Alexander Stadium in Piqua on Friday night.
Twenty-five years later, the 2014 edition is now just two wins away from another state championship. And they’ve made it look easy the last two weeks.

SIDNEY — Two lost fumbles by the Wapakoneta Redskins doomed their chance of unseating the Trotwood-Madison Rams.
Losing the opportunity to score, the Redskins defense could not make enough stops to survive the Rams in four overtime sessions, as Trotwood-Madison prevailed in a 34-28 four overtime thriller Friday at Sidney Memorial Stadium.
