Minster Stuns Kirtland 46-42 for D6 State Championship

December 6, 2014

COLUMBUS — Everything had to go perfectly for Minster in the game’s final two minutes in order to pull off the greatest escape of a playoff run full of them.

Everything did.

Going from despair to elation in a matter four minutes and 18 seconds, Minster football earned its first state title in a quarter century in dramatic fashion against the state’s top-ranked team on Friday night at Ohio Stadium.

Game at Horseshoe adds excitement for MAC teams

December 4, 2014

For all the pressure that comes with playoff football, Minster head coach Geron Stokes said his team has embraced the atmosphere. Now they’ll get to soak it in one more week in the famed Horseshoe.

“We’re just flying around and having fun,” Stokes said.

While Minster’s opponent Kirtland is making its fourth straight appearance in the state championship game, the move in venue to Ohio Stadium adds to the excitement of Friday’s Division VI state championship game.

Minster faces the stacked-I of Kirtland

The Kirtland Hornets aren’t into tricks, gimmicks or complication. Two tight ends, a pair of fullbacks, a running back dotting the I-formation and the crunching of shoulder pads.

“Our motto is we’re going to do what we do,” Kirtland head coach Tiger LaVerde said on Monday. “We always say we’re going to learn these five plays and run them better than anybody in the state.”

Those five plays have been enough to make the Hornets into one of Ohio’s best programs.

Minster headed to D6 State Title Game

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.

Minster wins regional title, will play Tinora in state semis

November 22, 2014

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.
