ST. MARYS — What was getting Wapakoneta down the field wasn’t producing points, so the Redskins employed a little razzle-dazzle to crack the scoreboard and take control of its rivalry game against the St. Marys Roughriders.
Wapakoneta’s 28-yard hook and lateral touchdown late in the second quarter staked the Redskins to a lead they’d never get close to losing. Wapak added a late touchdown and defeated St. Marys, 14-0, on a field at Skip Baughman Stadium that doubled as a marsh for the second time in three weeks.
ROCKFORD — On a cold rainy football Friday night at Rockford, the Minster Wildcats dominated the Parkway Panthers in Midwest Athletic Conference action, 43-16.
VERSAILLES — On a wet and dreary night the Versailles Tigers football team did most of their damage in the second quarter as they built up a 28-0 halftime lead. They built on that in the second half and defeated the New Bremen Cardinals 42-8 Friday night at Versailles.
“They played better than us,” Cardinals head coach Jason McGaharan said. “Pick a phase and they played better than us.”
With a wet field it was hard to get any traction for either team., but McGarahan refused to let that be an excuse for his team.
ST. MARYS — A local lake organization kicked off a campaign today to help raise money to honor the rich history of Grand Lake St. Marys.

LIA Secretary Kate Anderson said the project has been several months in the making.
