What a treat for the Redskins on a wicked night of weather on Halloween, as Wapakoneta captured the Western Buckeye League title outright and finished the regular season unbeaten with a 10-0 record Friday. Wapakoneta last completed a 10-0 season in 1986.
The Redskins also unofficially secured the first seed in Division III, Region 10, with their 31-0 win Friday over the Shawnee Indians in varsity football action at Harmon Field in Wapakoneta.
WAYNESFIELD – The snow was falling Friday night for the first time in months.
Too bad the Waynesfield-Goshen varsity football team fell along with the snow.
In the Tigers’ final regular season game of the 2014 football season, the Tigers felt Troy Christian’s blistering blows as W-G lost 18-0 to finish 3-7 overall.
Botkins native Jamie King O’Shea was inducted into the Eastern Kentucky University Athletics Hall of Fame recently.
King O’Shea, after an amazing career running for the Trojans of Botkins High School, had remarkable performances competing in cross country and track and field for the Eastern Kentucky University Colonels.
She was Jamie King as a prep standout. Now married and a stay-at-home mother with four children, King O’Shea was a four-year letterwinner in both cross country and track and field for the Colonels.
The Wapakoneta Redskins clinched a share of the Western Buckeye League title after they posted 42 points in just under 17 minutes Friday in a 42-0 shutout win against the Van Wert Cougars in a WBL varsity football game at Harmon Field.
Wapakoneta (9-0, 8-0 WBL) will look to clinch the league title outright next Friday in the final week of the regular season, needing a win in its league contest against the Shawnee Indians (2-7, 2-6), as the Redskins lead Kenton by one game in the league standings.
WAYNESFIELD — The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers varsity football team celebrated “Cheer for a Cure” during its Friday night Northwest Central Conference matchup against the NWCC’s defending champion, the Lehman Catholic Cavaliers.
The Tigers, however, did not have much to cheer about on the field, as the Cavaliers rolled to a 56-10 blowout win to clinch a share of the NWCC title for this season.
ELIDA — As the game wore on, the Wapakoneta Redskins held down Bekah Carr and Alyssa Cisco long enough to score a tying goal in regulation.
But the Celina Bulldogs duo began to gain steam again at the start of overtime, enough to start getting scoring opportunities.
ELIDA — The Celina Bulldogs had Wapakoneta’s number in 2014, as the Bulldogs prevented the Wapakoneta Redskins from winning the Western Buckeye League title outright and they ended Wapakoneta’s time in the postseason Monday.
During a game with a slight rain present to start, causing muddy field conditions, Celina was one step ahead of the Redskins all game long in a 5-2 victory in a high school boys soccer Division II district semifinal at Elida Middle School.
WAYNESFIELD — All season, Waynesfield-Goshen's varsity coach Tyler Turner has said his team is capable of playing better, that they are just as good as opponents such as Mechanicsburg and Upper Scioto Valley. That their best football is ahead of them after losing to a winless Perry team. He was also confident in Friday's game against a talented Riverside team.
ST. MARYS — Give the Wapakoneta Redskins five turnovers in one half and the result is all but assured.
Too experienced. Too strong. The fourth-ranked team in Ohio's Division III powered to its eighth win with another dominant defensive performance against its county rival and former coach.
