ST. MARYS — The St. Marys Roughriders followed through on their game plan, scoring an early goal and sitting on the lead, against the unbeaten and state-ranked Wapakoneta Redskins.
The Roughriders prevailed to notch a 1-0 upset win Monday over the Western Buckeye League-leading Redskins in varsity boys soccer action at Roughrider Field.

A Russian Bible lies on the desk of Wapakoneta High School teacher Bill Sammons, serving as a constant reminder of a mission trip he took to the country more than one year ago, and bringing to mind the fact that its people still need help.
In the summer of 2013, Sammons and three pastors took a 16-day expedition to several cities in Russia. The group traveled to Moscow and Yekaterinburg — two of the country's largest cities — as well as remote villages with little to no contact with the outside world.
