DELPHOS — The first half belonged to New Bremen. The second half was all St. John’s. That is the quick summary of the Midwest Athletic Conference football contest between the Jays and the Cardinals Friday night at Stadium Park as the Blue Jays prevailed 34–3. In cold and rainy field conditions, St. John’s fumbled on its first possession and New Bremen returned the favor on its drive. After a St. John’s punt, the Cardinals started at the 30. New Bremen had its best offensive play of the night: running back Alex Speelman bolted 52 yards to the Blue Jay 7. The Jays’ defense tightened up and aided by an illegal procedure call, the Cardinals settled for a 15-yard field goal by sophomore Trey Naylor at the 4:57 mark of the first period for the 3-0 edge. The Jays came up empty on their third possession: starting at their own 35 and advancing the ball to the New Bremen 27. On a 2nd-and-7 play, quarterback Mark Boggs was stripped of the ball.
