Marion Local holds off late-charging Minster, 41-34

November 10, 2012

 

PIQUA — Marion Local kept trying to drive the stake into Minster’s heart.

That took a long time in a memorable playoff shootout on Friday between Midwest Athletic Conference rivals.

Between a 44-yard reverse pass for a touchdown, a goal line stand and a 99-yard, 14-play touchdown drive, Minster answered every call in the fourth quarter in its quest to come back from a 21-point deficit.

The Wildcats simply ran out of time. Never heart.
