Marion Local outlasts Minster in key MAC match-up

September 17, 2011

MINSTER – Marion Local  defeated ninth-ranked  Minster 26-17 in a Midwest Athletic Conference homecoming showdown on Friday.

“We played really well tonight. This is a big win for us and we’ve been waiting a long time for this one,” said Marion Local head coach Tim Goodwin. “We played, not real well, (but) we played hard. We made plays and Minster played really well too. It was just two, evenly-matched teams.”

Goodwin said he was most happy with his team’s resiliency throughout the game.

New Bremen falls a point shy of Fort Recovery

September 17, 2011

NEW BREMEN – During the week New Bremen Cardinals head football coach stated that the New Bremen-Fort Recovery game would likely be close.  

He likely didn’t know just how right he’d be.

Fort Recovery won that close match-up 34-33 at New Bremen on Friday night.

Two big interceptions by Fort Recovery in the fourth quarter put the nail into the coffin for New Bremen as freshman Cole Hull intercepted an Elliot Westerbeck pass with 1:21 to end the Cardinal threat and cap a wild contest.

Roughriders host Bath in a ground battle

September 15, 2011

From the city that builds tanks, there is Aaron Smith.

From the town that has manufactured rushing yards with assembly-line efficiency through the years, there is D.J. Manning.

For three weeks, the St. Marys football team has faced a barrage of throws from three spread teams.

Now for something completely different.

The two best rushing teams and the two best rushers in the Western Buckeye League should make for a hard-hitting league match-up at Skip Baughman Stadium on Friday night.

Riders second-half comeback falls short to Elida

September 10, 2011

Quarterback Reggie McAdams and the Elida Bulldogs’ offense returned to the field just in time to halt the St. Marys football team’s second-half comeback bid.

McAdams engineered a game-defining 11-play, 64-yard touchdown drive in the closing minutes of the third quarter and into the early fourth quarter to give Elida the cushion it needed to escape from Skip Baughman Stadium with a 42-23 victory.

Elida had a worn-out defense and the Roughriders had scored 15 points in less than two minutes to close to within five points late in the third quarter.

Marion Local coasts past New Bremen, 55-8
