Staff Writer

MINSTER — Josh Nixon saved his best in an already stellar season on the mound for the postseason. His best was perfection. Nixon threw a perfect game in Minster’s 2-0 Division IV sectional final win over Lima Perry on Wednesday night at Hanover Street Park. Minster advances to the district semifinals on Wednesday in Coldwater against Spencerville , which defeated New Bremen 10-0 on Wednesday night.

“I started thinking about it about the fifth inning,” Nixon said. “I looked up and realized there were zeroes on the board. I tried not to think about it, but especially in that last inning it kept creeping up.”

SPENCERVILLE – With a 9-run third inning by the Spencerville Bearcats Wednesday night the New Bremen Cardinals tournament trail ended as the Bearcats defeated the Cardinals 10-0 ib five innings in the Division IV sectional championship game played at Spencerville.
