ST. MARYS — The fourth quarter started so promising for the St. Marys football team, but it was Kenton that dominated the final 10 minutes of what had been a Western Buckeye League defensive struggle.
The Roughriders held Kenton’s five-wide spread attack in check for more than three quarters and the Roughrider offense drove the field to give St. Marys a brief one-point early fourth-quarter lead, but a barrage of three touchdowns in less than four minutes lifted Kenton to a 26-7 win.
