DEFIANCE — The Roughriders weren’t ensnared in a potential trap game at Defiance. Now they’ll head into next week’s showdown against Wapakoneta with something they haven’t had since 2011 — a winning streak.
The St. Marys football team started slowly in a scoreless first quarter before exploding for seven touchdowns over the game’s final three quarters in a 49-21 win at Defiance on Friday night.
COLUMBUS — St. Marys senior Carter Bowman asked his coach about the menacing putt he was about to face from just off the green on the Par 5 12th hole at the Scarlet Course on Friday afternoon.
St. Marys head coach Scott Ross was a little glib in his advice.
“I think you should aim three feet left and hope it stops,” Ross said.
It stopped in the hole.

ST. MARYS — As a fourth or fifth grader, Dylan Brown says he remembers watching another school’s drum major perform on the football field one night.
He wasn’t particularly interested in music, but watching that student perform his routine with the baton sparked Brown’s interest.
“It looked like a lot of fun,” he said. “It was entertaining. It looked like something I might want to do.”
