The St. Marys Area Flying Dutch football team scored on their first four possessions on their way to a 55-12 victory over the Union Golden Knights on Homecoming for St. Marys Area at Dutch Country Stadium.
The Dutch were able to build a 35-0 lead at halftime as the mercy rule came into effect for the second half.
â€śThis was a good win for us coming off last weekâ€™s loss,â€ť said St. Marys coach Joe Schlimm.
â€śIt was a good opportunity to get all the kids in. Now we have to get Kyle Schneider back and are looking forward to finishing out the year with Karns City,â€ť added Schlimm.
The Curwensville Golden Tide football celebrated â€śSenior Nightâ€ť by handing the Elk County Catholic Crusaders a sound 28-6 beating on Friday night in an AML game by at the Curwensville High School field.
Things started out badly for the ECCHS squad as they fumbled the opening kickoff, which led to the first score of the night for the Golden Tide. After that, it didnâ€™t get much better as the Curwensville squad controlled the ball game for the most part.
Decker's Chapel, believed to be one of the smallest churches in the world, is getting spruced up by members of the Elk County Historical Society (ECHS).
The chapel dates back to 1856, when it was built by Michael Decker Sr., a St. Marys pioneer.
The ECHS, which was organized in 1964, obtained Decker's Chapel on April 20, 1990 from Decker's descendants, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Schneider. In 1998, ECHS's application to put the chapel on the National Register of Historic Places was approved.
