November 2, 2011

The Minster football team is in the playoffs in back-to-back  seasons for the first time since 1991, led by the Midwest Athletic Conference’s top-ranked defense and a balanced offense that features a veteran offensive line and two standout running backs.

The Wildcats (7-3) will travel to Springfield Catholic Central (8-2) on Saturday in a re-match of last season's first round playoff game from last season. Minster upset the top-seeded Irish in that game.

The Wildcats are an even more confident bunch this season.
