Volleyball: Marion Local a win away from another state title

November 10, 2012

FAIRBORN — Buckeye Central head coach Bill Bonham didn’t wait until Saturday to proclaim a volleyball state champion in Division IV.

He’d already seen the Marion Local Flyers up close on Friday wield three unstoppable hitters to a three-game sweep in a state semi-final.

Bonham doesn’t see anyone having an answer for what the Flyers can put on the court. He said he expected Marion Local to hoist its fourth state title trophy in six years on Saturday.

50 Years Ago This Week – 1962

Fifty years ago this week, the St. Marys Roughriders concluded the 1962 football campaign by nearly upsetting the Western Buckeye League champion, Lima Shawnee Indians. 

In a mud-caked mess, the first quarter came and went without any activity on the scoreboard.  That all changed in the second period when St. Marys received a punt from Shawnee and returned it 25 yards to the 10-yard line. 

Minster plays Marion Local for third straight playoffs

November 8, 2012

MINSTER — Just three years ago the notion that Minster and Marion Local would become a running playoff football rivalry seemed unlikely.

The Flyers have been a model of consistency over the past 15 seasons, racking up five state championships between stints in Divisions V and VI. Minster, meanwhile, was mired in a stretch of six straight seasons without a winning record and just two seasons with a winning record in the previous 13 seasons before Nate Moore took over in 2010. Marion Local had won 11 of the last 12 meetings against Minster heading into 2010.

Minster opens playoffs with 48-7 win

MINSTER — The Minster defense stonewalled the Tri-County North wing-T offense,  quarterback Adam Niemeyer delivered a handful of touchdown passes and the Wildcat running backs had four-foot wide holes to run through all night long.

For one week of the playoffs, the Minster Wildcats made it look easy.

The degree of difficulty goes way up next week when the Wildcats face the Division VI defending state champions.

50 Years Ago This Week – 1962

This week in 1962, the St. Marys Roughriders concluded their high school football campaign with a 28-20 loss to the Wapakoneta Redskins.  

In the early-going, it looked as if the Riders would have little trouble as they received the opening kickoff and scored in only seven plays when Ronnie Jones bulled in from one yard away.
