Around the WBL: Riders host Van Wert

October 20, 2011

A St. Marys football team looking to get healthy and back on the winning track will seemingly find the right opponent in the Van Wert Cougars to accomplish those goals.

St. Marys could use some home cooking after two weeks away from Skip Baughman Stadium.

The Riders’ losing streak reached three last week after the wheels fell off in the second half of a 35-7 loss to Ottawa-Glandorf. The Titans scored 28 unanswered second-half points to drop St. Marys to 3-5 and 2-5 in the Western Buckeye League.

Around the MAC: Moore calls Minster's game must-win, Marion Local-DSJ square off, Cardinals face tough Cavs

October 20, 2011

MINSTER — A missed extra point last week against Versailles may not have closed the door on Minster’s playoff hopes, but it did make Week 9 a must-win for the 5-3 Wildcats.

The 21-20 loss last week dropped Minster to eighth in the latest projected computer points rankings. That means the Wildcats (5-3, 3-3 MAC) will have to at least split their final two games and may need some help to get into the post season.

“We’ve got running backs putting up big numbers and we’ve got teams who throw it all over the field,” Schriner said on Tuesday.
