2000 - 2001
SOC II Champs
The Falcons avenged over 15 years of loosing to Wheelersburg by beating them more times this year than in the history of the rivalry. The first game was held at Wheelersburg and the outcome decided who would take the SOC Crown and Minford came out on top 24-14. The second game had much more on the line for both teams. Minford came into this game with home field advantage but were in a totally different atmosphere. They were playing the first playoff game since 1985 and were favored to win the contest against thier rival Wheelersburg. Wheelersburg also had much to loose in the game Friday. Their streak of 35 seasons with a winning record was going to be threatened.
Round One of the Division IV
Minford (7-3) VS Wheelersburg (5-5)
Minford came out on top with a convincing 28-0 win. The Falcons handed Wheelersburg their first loosing season in 35 years.
Minford's dream season came to an end in round two of the OHSAA playoffs at the hand of the Germantown Spartans. The Spartans are three time state champions and were in the regionals every season through the 1990's. They will likely win the state championship this year.
