St. Marys at New Knoxville Boys Basketball

Allen's game-winning shot lifts Rangers over Roughriders

December 4, 2011

NEW KNOXVILLE -- Junior guard Jake Allen made New Knoxville's first game against St. Marys in more than 60 years something to remember.

Allen sliced into the lane and hit a runner with less than six seconds left to lift New Knoxville to a 43-42 comeback win over St. Marys on Saturday night.

When St. Marys guard Dustin Fisher's long heave from the right side clanked off the side of the iron, New Knoxville's bench cascaded onto the floor and mobbed Allen at mid-court.

"I think a new rivalry has started," Allen said after the game.

Marion Local steamrolls to fifth state title

CANTON -- A Midwest Athletic Conference team flexed its muscle in a Division VI title game again and another overmatched opponent winced.

Third time not a charm: Hauber and Kirtland too much for Coldwater

December 2, 2011

MASSILLON — The white screen-printed 34 on Christian Hauber’s Kirtland Hornets jersey is cracked and faded like a distressed t-shirt. Everyone else’s numbers  are crisp and intact.  

It’s no fashion statement, though. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound fullback earns every bit of the jersey’s degradation with a tough running style that has his team celebrating its first-ever state championship.

Kirtland captured the Division V state crown with a 28-7 win over Coldwater on Friday to cap a perfect 15-0 season.

This Week 50 Years Ago: Riders started off 1961-1962 season with a win

December 1, 2011

50 Years Ago This Week – 1961

The St. Marys Roughriders got the 1961-62 boys’ basketball campaign off to a promising start with a 46-40 victory over the Greenville Green Wave. 

It was St. Marys’ first win over the Wave on the basketball court in five years. 

Using their noticeable height advantage, Greenville held complete control of the boards in the first half and pushed out to a 23-18 lead at intermission. 

Gusching Division VI Defensive POY, Moore Coach of Year; Div. V and VI lists

December 1, 2011

Minster senior linebacker Daniel Gusching earned the Division VI Defensive Player of the Year award in Division VI and Minster head coach Nate Moore was named Division VI’s top coach in the Associated Press All-Ohio football team.

Gusching, a 6-foot-3, 217-pound senior outside linebacker, made 89 tackles this season with 11 sacks in 13 games.

Gusching schared the honor with Youngstown Christian’s Kaevon Green.

Division V state title game goes public

December 1, 2011

COLDWATER — The common link between Coldwater and Kirtland coming into Friday’s Division V state championship game is a team that didn’t even make the playoffs this season.

Both teams bowed out of the playoffs the last two seasons at the hands of private school power Youngstown Ursuline. Coldwater lost the last two Division V title game to the Irish. Kirtland fell earlier in the playoffs the last two years to Ursuline.

The two squads meet at Massillon’s Paul Brown Tiger Stadium on Friday morning at 11 a.m.
