St. Henry came back and won a Midwest Athletic Conference 35-21 victory.

“We stuck to the plan and give credit to our kids for not folding, they could have easily folded there at 14-0 with Minster having all the momentum,” said St. Henry coach Jeff Starkey. “It was great by our kids just hanging in there.”

“We played a very good football team and they did a great job tonight,” said Minster coach Nate Moore. “I mean you got to give them all the credit in the world. They played a great game and came out on top.”
