The Roughriders enter Week 5 with the same record as they did in 2019, but this year’s team is coming off back-to-back losses as they travel to Shawnee Township on Friday.
And still, the biggest question remains — can the Roughriders offense find a level of consistency and continue to improve into the next week?
St. Marys coach Doug Frye said he thought last week’s game against Van Wert had a few good matchups that would benefit his team, including running more of the wing-T offense more effectively. The Roughriders ran for 225 yards — second-most rushing yards in a game this season for St. Marys — and two rushing touchdowns. The team averaged 4.6 yards per carry — second-most in the game this season and rushed 49 times, which is tied for second-most in a game this season.
