To celebrate ten years of promoting entrepreneurship, the Oak Harbor DECA chapter created a special activity to show support and appreciation of local entrepreneurs. The first cash mob was started in February at the Mill Street Brew in the village of Oak Harbor. Ten businesses will be selected by DECA members for weekly cash mobs. 

What is a Cash Mob? A cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business to make purchases. The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community. Last Friday the cash mob was held at the Sugar and Spice Bakery, formerly Sweet Treats, now under new ownership.

Oak Harbor girls fall in district finals in heartbreaking fashion

  • Published in Sports

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. Bucyrus Wynford found that out on Saturday. In a back-and-forth game that featured two ties and three lead changes in the closing minutes, Oak Harbor girls lost, 40-37, when Wynford’s Meghan Harrer’s desperation three-pointer at the buzzer gave the Royals the victory in the Division III District Finals last Saturday at Seneca East High School in Attica.

The Rockets, who finish the season at 20-5, fought valiantly, playing virtually the entire game without guard Emma Barney before rallying from a seven-point deficit to take the lead late in the fourth quarter. Entering the final quarter trailing, 25-22, Oak Harbor fell behind by six before rallying to take a 35-34 lead on two free throws by Andrea Cecil with 2:21 remaining. 

However, Cecil fouled out at the 1:55 mark on a questionable call when she was whistled for a foul on Wynford’s Brenna Quinn. Quinn connected on 1-of-2 free throws to tie the score at 35.

Oak Harbor 56, Port Clinton 45

A few days before playing Clyde, Oak Harbor defeated Port Clinton, 56-45, in the sectional semifinal. The Rockets, who lost to the Redskins both times in the regular season, jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

Oak Harbor took a 15-5 lead after the first quarter with the big play coming as Andy Rathbun connected on a three-pointer just before the buzzer. The Rockets pushed the advantage to 20-5 at the 4:41 mark of the second quarter as they held Port Clinton (8-13) to just two field goals in the game’s first 12 minutes. 

Down 41-27 to begin the fourth quarter, the ‘Skins went on a 12-5 run to cut the deficit to 46-39, but Oak Harbor ended any hopes of a comeback when Deshawn Johnson and Paul Shay scored on back-to-back baskets with 2:38 remaining to close it out.

Tate Haar led all scorers with 18 points, Johnson finished with 15 and Rathbun scored eight. Port Clinton got a combined 24 points from the Rumball brothers, with Tytan scoring 13 and Carter filling in with 11.
