Riders clinch share of WBL in rivalry win

CELINA, OH – “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Charles Dickens wrote these words in his 1859 classic “A Tale of Two Cities”, but it very well could have described Friday night’s at times back and forth match-up between rivals St. Marys and Celina.

In a contest to decide if the Bulldogs would be able to reach for an outside share of their first Western Buckeye League title since 1995 or if their cross lake foes would put themselves even further ahead in the race each team took their best shots at one another and seemed to have the game in their favor.

Right out of the gate to open the game the Roughriders offense found themselves clicking as they used just four plays to travel 67 yards and on top 7-0 when Sean Perry rushed though a pack of white jerseys and into the endzone from 19 yards away.

Following the Bulldogs first possession ending with a three and out the Roughriders put together a classic Doug Frye style drive as they utilized 15 plays and 6:59 to push ahead 14-0 on a 1 yard dive by Quarterback Colin Clements.

Another three and out for Celina would give their visitors their best field position, this time at the Bulldogs 47 late in the opening period before Clements pushed in from 2 yards out for his second tally of the evening to put his squad on top 21-0 with 8:03 remaining in the second quarter.

A pair of punts would pin each team deep on their next possession before a big return gave Celina life at their own 40 with :26 to go in the first half. What was quickly a promising drive that moved the home team down to the Riders 20 came to and end when the stadium clock reached 0:00 however and sent the two teams into the locker room with a 21-0 St. Marys lead.

In the third quarter a Celina offense that had been out-gained by a plethora of yards in the first two periods sprang to life and were able to cut into the St. Marys lead with their first touchdown when QB Brett Schwieterman connected with Kole Murlin for a 6 yard touchdown late in the games penultimate quarter to make it 21-7 St. Marys.

Celina continued to stymie the St. Marys offense in the early part of the fourth quarter and pulled themselves to within 21-14 with just 9:57 remaining when tailback Kyle Zizleman raced in from 20 yards out for his 8th score of the season.

Despite Celina having the momentum in their favor the Rider offense was able to push the lead back out to a pair of scores and begin to deflate the Bulldog enthusiasm when Sean Perry, who finished with a career high 211 yards on the evening raced 59 yards down the sideline to put his team first and goal from the Celina 8.

Ty Schlosser’s 7th touchdown run of the season, an 8 yard jaunt gave the Riders a 28-14 lead with 8:55 remaining in the contest and all but assured his team would stay as the leagues lone unbeaten.

Two straight incomplete passes on third and fourth down for Celina and Schwieterman would force the Bulldogs to relinquish the football on their ensuing possession before St. Marys again put together another long drive to put the final touches on their second straight win in the series.

Starting from the Celina 48 the Roughriders utilized 9 plays and a key offside penalty on the Bulldogs inside the 10 to get Colin Clements his third rushing touchdown of the evening, a 1 yard plunge that provided the games final score and margin of 35-14.

Celina saw their final chance with the football come to an end as an errant pass found its way into the waiting hands of St. Marys defensive back Sean Perry and allowed his offense to take a pair of kneel downs to run out the remaining time in the contest.

With the loss the Bulldogs see their season record fall to 5-3 overall and 5-2 in Western Buckeye League play. Celina will be on the road next week as they will travel to take on Van Wert.

For the first time since the 2003 and 2004 seasons the Roughriders will lay claim to being at worst Co-WBL Champions. A win next week at home inside the friendly confines of Skip Baughman Stadium against Defiance would mean St. Marys (7-1, 7-0) would be the outright Western Buckeye League Champions for the first time since capturing the 2003 crown when they finished 9-2.

On the evening the Roughriders #1 ranked rushing offense picked up 366 yards on 59 rushes and held Celina to a total of 282 yards on 63 total plays. Leading the St. Marys attack was Sean Perry’s 211 yards on 24 carries. Ty Schlosser added 17 totes for a total of 90 yards, his second such rushing yardage contest of the season.

All-time St. Marys is now 64-29-6 against their lake counterparts, including 13-2 under current head coach Doug Frye who moves to a personal mark of 6-1 at Celina Stadium.

Titans nab WBL share

ST. MARYS, OH – Ottawa Glandorf followed their gameplan to near perfection Friday night and forced St. Marys into four turnovers in a 13-7 win that clinched a share of the WBL title for the Titans.

With the OG win over St. Marys, the Titans, Roughriders, and Wapak Redskins will each snag a piece of this seasons Western Buckeye League crown.

Jay Kaufman, OG’s 6’4 Junior signalcaller engineered the first score of the game on his squads first possession of the contest as he led his team on a 49 yard drive and finished off the score with his 20th touchdown pass of the season by hooking up with Richie Knowlton for a 27 yard score to make it 7-0 visitors.

Unlike the way the Roughriders have gone all season long as they have led the WBL in turnover differential at +15, St. Marys would commit their first turnover of the game two possessions later in the contest as Connor Niese snagged a pass from Dustin Howell and returned the ball to the Titan 44 to set his squad up.

Kicker Tristen Ball accounted for the rest of the points in the first half and helped OG stretch their halftime lead to 13-0 as he connected on a 21 and 35 yard field goal attempt.

After forcing OG into a punt on their first possession of the second half the Roughriders found themselves beginning their drive just short of mid-field at their own 49. Seven plays and 51 yards after the start of their drive, St. Marys put their only points of the game on the Skip Baughman Stadium scoreboard as Dustin Howell hooked up with Bo Kuenning on a 17 yard toss to cut the OG lead to 13-7 with 7:57 in the games penultimate period.

A pair of St. Marys fumbles would put an end to two drives in which the Roughriders found themselves driving deep into Titan territory, but neither was more costly than the one that came with under 1:30 remaining in the game that gave OG the football at their own 36 and forced St. Marys to use their timeouts in an attempt to stop their opponents from trying to run out the clock.

Ottawa Glandorf has now beaten St. Marys for seven consecutive seasons, the longest such streak in the history of the series that dates back to their first meeting in 1967.

Offensively the Titans ran 57 plays and accumulated 215 total yards on the night. Through the air Jay Kaufman connected on 14/24 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 41 yards on 23 carries on the ground.

Eric Spicer shouldered the load for St. Marys as he toted the football 27 times for 154 yards but was unable to dent the endzone in the contest. Julius Fisher rushed 15 times for 59 yards as the Riders as a team totaled 233 yards on 48 carries against one of the top defenses in the league. Through the air Senior QB Dustin Howell was 9/13 for 77 yards but was intercepted for the second time this season.

Next week both teams will find themselves in the playoffs and with home games as OG (9-1, 8-1) is currently seeded second in Division 4’s Region 14 and will host Bellevue on Friday night at Titan Stadium according to Joe Eitel (D4R14 Rankings )

St. Marys will return to the playoffs for the first time since they last shared a WBL title back in 2008, and will host just their third home game and first since 2003 as they welcome Dayton Belmont to Skip Baughman Stadium for a 7pm Saturday night kickoff that can be heard live on WKKI K94.3 FM.

St. Marys, Wapak set for WBL showdown

ST. MARYS, OH – When Friday night’s WBL Week 9 matchup kicks off it will end in one of two ways: Wapak (8-0, 7-0) will continue their record 33 game WBL winning streak, or St. Marys (8-0, 7-0) head coach Doug Frye will be the man to put an end to the streak that began for Wapak when he was the man roaming the sidelines at Harmon Field.

Wapak has won the last six matchups in the series but trails overall in the series 65-40-5 dating back to the two schools first meeting in 1921 that was won 19-0 by St. Marys.

Two communities whose football fields are separated by just 13 miles and who share a history of exciting finishes and hard hitting games will look to hand one another their first loss of the season and clinch at least a share of the league title when the contest kicks off at 7:00pm.

Last season St. Marys utilized almost the entire opening quarter on their first drive of the game and nearly the entire length of Wapak’s Harmon Field turf to go up 7-0, but would not see another point come their way. Behind a 14 carry 143 yard 2 touchdown performance from Senior tailback Cam Lauck the Redskins accounted for 46 unanswered points in winning their 24th straight league contest on their way to another playoff berth.

St. Marys is coming off of three straight shutouts (Bath/Celina/Defiance) for the first time since they opened the year with four straight shutouts to begin the 1982 season in which they finished 9-1. Defensively overall St. Marys is surrendering just 9.1 points per game and is leading the WBL where they are even stingier at 4.9 ppg.

Offensively the Roughriders are leading the league at 41.3 points per game and with their highest season point total in the past decade. Senior runningback Eric Spicer, the WBL’s leading rusher enters the game with a 9.0 yard per carry average, 968 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns. Fellow senior Julius Fisher is tied with Spicer with 11 scoring runs and is second in the league at 839 yards on 130 totes of the football.

Wapak is led by first year dual threat starting QB Manny Vorhees and a pair of terrific runners in Landon Hall and Maddux Liles, and is averaging 31.8 a game while giving up just 11.6 per game on the defensive end.

Outscoring their opponents by the truckload has been a commonplace for both squads as Wapak has done so by a 20.1 per contest margin while St. Marys is #1 in the league with a 32.1 difference in their eight times out this year.

Doug Frye’s career record in 30 years sits at 205-111 overall, 108-44 in his second tenure at St. Marys. Wapak coach Travis Moyer has complied a 150-30 mark in 16 years, 32-2 at Wapak in his third year, and has won 86 games in a row dating back to his 13 years behind the Bucyrus Wynford bench.

If you cannot make it to the game on Friday night to see a titanic matchup between two Northwest Ohio heavyweights you can listen live to WKKI K94.3 FM with myself and Dennis Cisco on the call and see who comes out the top dog in the WBL: Wapak vs St Marys Broadcast Link

Riders dominate Cougars

VAN WERT, OH – St. Marys came in with a game plan to run at will against Van Wert and executed it to near perfection as the Roughriders saw four different rushers reach the Cougar endzone in their 46-6 rout to open WBL play Friday night.

Matt Patten’s block of an attempted Van Wert punt gave the Roughriders the football for the first time in the contest at their opponents 26 yard line, and the Riders wasted no time as they put the first points on the board.

Utilizing six plays and just under two minutes the Riders offense turned to Junior RB Chandler Gray who bounced in from two yards out for his first varsity rushing touchdown to put St. Marys up 7-0.

Following a 31 yard punt the Riders again found themselves with the ball in good field position, but used 5:13 and 12 plays to push their advantage to 14-0 with a Julius Fisher touchdown.

Seven plays after Grant Keith recovered a Cougars fumble the visitors added six more points to their lead when Senior signal caller Dustin Howell dove into the endzone from six yards out for his fourth score on the ground of the year, but Gabe Vandever’s extra point was deemed a miss so the lead stayed at 20-0 for St. Marys early in the second period.

Eric Spicer’s lone touchdown of the game on the ground, a 14 yard score pushed the Rider lead to 26-0 with 4:01 left in the first half but a muffed snap on the extra point kept the lead from going any higher.

Van Wert’s only points of the ballgame came with :18 before the break as Sophomore QB Lawson Blackmore hooked up with Nate Place for the second time this season for a touchdown to send the game to the half at 26-6.

The only completed pass of the game for St. Marys came on the seventh play of the Riders opening drive in the third quarter when Howell hooked up with last seasons leading receiver in Eric Spicer for a 39 yard marker to make it 33-6 after the extra point.

Chandler Gray who had just a pair of rushes for 10 yards last week in a win over Sidney showed his speed on a first play of the drive handoff after St. Marys took over at the Van Wert 26 following a bad punt by the Cougars and sprinted to the endzone to cue the +30 point running clock when the score became 39-6.

With subs working their way in and out of the Roughrider lineup the visiting squad turned to 5’10, 185 pound Junior Keegan Sawmiller for their final scoring play of the contest as he jaunted in from two yards out to put St. Marys up 40 points at 46-6.

Van Wert has now dropped both games this season and sees their record fall to 0-2, and 0-1 in Western Buckeye League play. The Cougars will travel to Titan Stadium in Ottawa next Friday night to take on a 2-0 Titans squad that defeated them 26-25 last season.

St. Marys improves to 2-0 on the season and picks up their first WBL win and will be on the road next week as they take on the 0-2 Shawnee Indians in a contest broadcast live by WKKI K94.3 FM K94.3 FM Celina with pregame beginning at 6:30pm and kickoff shortly after 7:00pm.

Wildcats hand Riders first loss of season

ST. MARYS, OHIO – The Bath Wildcats continued their recent run of dominance Friday night against St. Marys as they dealt the Roughriders their first loss of the season.

With their 28-7 win over St. Marys, Bath has now defeated their WBL foes four consecutive times dating back to 2012.

Defensively the Wildcats came into the game as the Western Buckeye League’s top ranked rushing defense, and did nothing to hurt that ranking as they held St. Marys to their lowest total of the season, 89 yards.

Offensively Bath used their own potent ground game and racked up 294 yards and four scores in the win. The Wildcats ran 61 total plays from scrimmage and accounted for 316 total yards after being held under 300 for the first time this season last week in their 24-14 loss to Wapak.

After forcing the Roughriders into the first of a pair of three and outs, the Bath offensive unit wasted little time getting on the scoreboard as they used just 3:26 to cover 56 yards on 8 plays. Junior QB Kaden Sullivan had little trouble rushing in from 6 yards out as he accounted for the first of a pair of scores on the night with the jaunt at the 6:34 mark of the opening quarter. Bath’s ensuing two point conversion attempt was unsuccessful so they would hold their lead at 6-0 over the home squad.

With St. Marys again held to a three and out on offense, the WBL’s 3rd leading rusher in Sullivan again led his team deep down as they covered 45 yards on 11 plays including a 4th and 1 to get to their opponents 5 yard line before failing to convert on their second 4th and 1 and giving the ball back to St. Marys.

Bo Gross’ first of two touchdown runs came with 6:24 remaining in the opening half as he rushed into the endzone virtually untouched from 9 yards out to push the score to 12-0 Bath. Gross wasted no time on the very next play as he again penetrated the Rider defense to complete the two point conversion and give his squad a 14-0 advantage.

As the rain began to dampen the grass at Skip Baughman Stadium the ball became a bit slicker and squirted out of the hands of St. Marys returner Austin Tester on the ensuing kickoff and was quickly recovered by Bath at the Riders 27. Gross added his second touchdown in a four minute span as he cashed in from 6 yards out to give the visitors a 21-0 lead that they would carry into the halftime break.

Following an interception from St. Marys signalcaller Dustin Howell that did not result in any points, the Bath offense finally found themselves able to convert a turnover into points in the second half as the second touchdown from Sullivan, his 8th of the season ran the visitors tally to 28-0 with 9:03 to go in the game.

St. Marys was able to get on the board with 6:10 left and on the following possession as they traveled 74 yards using both the run and the pass effectively for the first time in the contest against the Bath defense. Howell’s 28 yard rush on the third play from scrimmage on the drive put the Riders in business at midfield, but it was his 29 yard completion through the air to Randy Slife that moved his offense deep into Bath territory. On the drives 11th play Eric Spicer got his team on the board and avoided being shut out for the first time since October 2013 from 2 yards out to run the final margin to 28-7 Bath.

Of the 186 yards gained by the Roughriders in the contest, Howell would throw for 97 and lead his team in rushing with 13 carries for 46 yards. Eric Spicer rushed 10 times for 25 yards and the lone Rider touchdown while Julius Fisher finished with 3 carries for 10 yards.

Bath with the win sees their record improve to 3-3 overall, and 2-3 in the WBL. Two teams with the same record in Bath and Van Wert will meet next weekend as they each look to improve their standing in the middle of the WBL pack.

With their first loss of the season, the Roughriders see their record fall to 5-1 overall and 4-1 in Western Buckeye League play. The Battle of Grand Lake will take place next Friday night as St. Marys travels to Celina to take on the 4-2 (4-1) Bulldogs in a game that will be broadcast live on K94.3 FM as well as www.k943.com.

St Henry, LCC move on

ADA, OHIO – The matchup that basketball fans across the state have been waiting for will come to fruition Saturday night at Ohio Northern University’s King Horn Center when the St. Henry Redskins tangle with the defending state champion LCC T-Birds as both teams were victorious in their Semifinal matchups on Thursday night. LCC took the first game of the doubleheader 52-49 over Coldwater while the Redskins downed Liberty Benton 51-31 in the nightcap.

LCC got their offensive attack going just :49 into the contest as a layup by Tre Cobbs found the way to the bottom of the net, but Coldwater quickly tied the game just seconds later as 6’8 Junior Andy Brunet connected on a basket for his squad. Cobbs would find himself with the T-Birds first two buckets and leading at 5-2 on the teams ensuing possession as he connected on a shot from behind the arc. Following a rebound by Cobbs near the end of the quarter, LCC pushed their lead to 15-9 on a triple by leading scorer Dantez Walton.

Aided by 10 points in the second quarter from Josh Dixon the defending D3 champs found themselves with a 31-20 halftime lead. Coldwater shot 9/23 in the first half and utilized a pair of three pointers from deep on the wing by Ted Fisher to keep the LCC lead in the low double digits despite turning the ball over five times and only being able to force one turnover in the opening half.

Coldwater (12-12) would outscore LCC (22-2) 13-12 in the games penultimate stanza and have the lead cut to just 4 at 35-31 with a Derek Thobe triple at the 2:31 mark of the quarter before. LCC would add 8 points in the final two minutes as they utilized a three pointer by Garrett Thomas, a 6’0 Senior as well as 5 points by Cobbs to go into the 4th leading 43-33.

Defensively the Cavaliers would play one of their best quarters of the season in the last 8:00 as they held LCC to 0 points from the field. With the defense tightening up however it was the T-Birds who would utilize the free throw line that had been so kind to the Cavaliers up to that point and connect on 9/11 opportunities en route to the win. Following a made free throw by Cobbs that gave his team a 52-49 lead with :03 left, Coldwater’s Derek Thobe missed a heave from halfcourt as time expired.

St. Henry got a measure of revenge in their game with Liberty Benton as the Eagles knocked them out of last seasons tournament in the Districts 57-34. This season the Redskins got off to a quick 4-0 lead with baskets by Ryan Mikesell and Mitchel Stammen before LB could even get off their first shot of the game.

With the score tied at 13 and just :04 seconds left on the clock, St. Henry’s Jesse Niekamp came up with a steal and raced to the opposite side of the court to hit a layup that beat the buzzer to send his team into the period break leading 15-13. Anthony Masterlasco, a 1st team BVC selection this season as a Sophomore scored 6 of his 12 points in the quarter for Liberty Benton.

Five points is all the LB offense would be able to muster in the second quarter as the Redskins defense turned up their intensity forcing the Eagles into 8 turnovers and 1/5 shooting from beyond the arc to lead 30-20 at the half. Mikesell was held to 13 points in the contest on 5/11 shooting but tossed in 7 of his points in the stanza, including a three pointer deep from the wing to help keep his squad on top going into the half. Liberty Benton was held scoreless in the quarter for 3:43 between baskets by Masterlasco and Nathan Craft.

Mitch Stammen was brilliant from the free throw line in the second half for the Redskins as he connected on 8/8 tosses from the charity stripe (he shot 10/10 overall from the line in the game). Jesse Niekamp and Mikesell combined to shoot 3/5 from the free throw line as well and helped St. Henry to a 41-26 lead after three quarters.

Jesse Niekamp became the third player for his team to get into double figures as he connected on a layup with 5:54 remaining that gave him his 11th point of the game, and his team a 47-29 advantage. Liberty Benton’s only make from the field in the fourth quarter came on a three pointer Senior Tyler Vorst. Only Jackson Logsdon would put points up for the Eagles in the last period other than the aforementioned three pointer from Vorst as he connected on a pair of free throws with 3:31 left. The charity tosses by Logsdon also proved to be the final points of the contest as St. Henry picked up the win 51-31.

Liberty Benton’s season comes to an end at 18-6 while the Redskins are now 22-2 and will play LCC on Saturday at 7pm at ONU in a game that will be broadcast live on WKKI K94.3fm and online at www.k943.com

Ryan Mikesell who finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds in the game added another award to his long list of accolades after the game as it was announced that he has been named as the Division 3 Northwest District Player of the Year.

3’s propel St. Henry over Wapak in “Battle of the Redskins”

Evan Prenger hit two of his teams nine three pointers in the first quarter Saturday night to set the tone from deep early for St. Henry and help the Redskins to a 63-42 non-conference win at Wapakoneta.

St. Henry (#4 in latest Division 3 Associated Press poll) jumped on top of the home team early and often in the first stanza and they blitzed out to a 16-8 first quarter lead. Ryan Mikesell made a pair of free throws in the opening quarter that turned out to be the only opportunity either squad would get from the charity stripe in the contest that featured just 13 fouls.

With junior big man Corey Crawford providing all 8 of Wapak’s points in the first quarter, the home Redskins looked for more of the same in the second stanza but were denied in the post by the defense of St. Henry. With nothing available on the inside Wapak turned to their perimeter game as Aaron Huffman would hit a pair of jumpers and a layup to lead his team with 7 in the period. With just seconds left in the second quarter and following a Mikesell miss from three, Huffman would blaze a trail up the left side of the court and hit a shot from the volleyball line on his homecourt to cut his teams disadvantage to just 6 at the break at 31-25.

Wapakoneta would be held to 8 points in the 3rd quarter but would get 6 of those points on a pair of back to back three pointers by Adam Henderson to keep St. Henry at bay midway through the third period. St. Henry would see four players get on the board in the quarter as they pushed their advantage heading into the 4th quarter to 49-33 behind 7 from Mitch Stammen and 6 from Mikesell.

Three of the triples on the night for St. Henry would find the net in the final quarter from AJ Niekamp on back to back possessions and Mikesell again. Wapak never relented despite the score being in the visitors favor and got a pair of three pointers from sophomore Michael Burton in the right corner that cut into the deficit they faced. Jarrett Koch added one of his two three pointers on the evening in the waning moments of the game as well, but his squad fell short as the clock hit 0:00 by a 63-42 margin.

St. Henry (14-1) was led in scoring by Ryan Mikesell who finished with 22 points to go along with his game high 11 rebounds, 8 assists and 8 blocks. In addition to Mikesell, three of his teammates finished in double figures as Mitch Stammen finished with 11, AJ Niekamp with 10, and Evan Prenger with 10. The Redskins remaining schedule features just two out of seven games against teams with winning records, both next weekend against New Bremen (Friday) and Celina (Saturday). The combined record of opponents for St. Henry heading into Saturday night’s contest sat at 43-52.

Wapakoneta (8-8) was led in scoring by Adam Henderson with 9. Sidney will play host to Wapak on Tuesday night for the Redskins before a weekend battle with WBL foe Ottawa Glandorf at the Supreme Court on Friday. Saturday night will see Wapak playing host to St. Marys.
