Rockets rally to defeat Margaretta, 16-8

Down eight points in the second quarter in its final game of the season, it would've been easy for Oak Harbor to fold and end the season with a loss.

Instead, the Rockets rallied to defeat Margaretta, 16-8, to finish the season with a 3-7 record and a 2-4 mark in the Sandusky Bay Conference.

Trailing 8-0, Oak Harbor quarterback Andre Ramsey found Jonathan Frederick for a touchdown, and the two-point conversion tied the score heading into the half.

The Rockets took the lead for good when Frederick scored just over a minute into the third quarter. The ensuing two-point conversion made it 16-8, and Oak Harbor never looked back.

The Polar Bears' lone touchdown came on a 10-yard run by Tyler Henderson with 6:58 to play in the first half.

Margaretta, which failed to win a game in the conference, finishes the season with a 4-6 record and a 0-6 mark in the SBC.


BCS Joint Committee to explore options

The Benton-Carroll-Salem School District’s Facilities, Communications, and Finance Committees came together on October 15 for a special joint meeting to discuss the long-term path for school district facilities.  Committee members, who included community members, board members, and district employees, discussed the closure of school buildings in the past, and improvements that have been made to school buildings currently in use.  The joint committee came to the consensus that the district must begin to develop a plan to continue providing safe and efficient school facilities for students and community long into the future.   The group discussed how this facilities plan must consider the prudent spending of tax dollars to maintain current facilities, while also being forward looking.   A facilities plan would help the district spend its tax dollars strategically and wisely.
