Kenton (0-1) at St. Marys (0-1)
The St. Marys football team faces a Kenton team that has won at least a share of the Western Buckeye League title each of the past four seasons in a league opener on Friday night at Skip Baughman Stadium.
Fifty years ago this week, New Bremen’s Western Ohio Pony League baseball team concluded their remarkable season with an overall record of 20-3.
They closed the campaign with a 7-0 victory over Fort Loramie at the post-season tournament championship in Botkins. Dean Harlamert tossed a six-hit shutout for New Bremen, while earning his tenth victory of the season from the hill.
New Bremen pushed its record to 4-0 on the season in Midwest Athletic Conference play after narrowly defeating Parkway 161-162 at Deerfield on Monday afternoon. New Bremen overcame Parkway’s Jordan Bollenbacher’s medalist 35 and Brian Shatzer’s 38 with its depth. New Bremen’s Darin Bergman fired a 37 and Alex Britton and Travis Bertelsen each shot 40s. Tyler Hagen and Alex Feltz both had 44s.
ST. MARYS — Sidney waited two seasons to celebrate a victory , so an extra minute of patience needed before kicking an overtime game-winner didn’t faze head coach Adam Doenges and his Yellow Jackets.
The St. Marys Roughriders were simply left kicking themselves for opportunities missed in the 2012 season opener.
Sidney senior kicker Andre Spillers booted a 30-yard field goal in overtime to snap Sidney’s 20-game losing streak and give the Yellow Jackets a 10-7 overtime win over St. Marys at Skip Baughman Stadium on Friday night.
