BASKETBALL: Flat showing dooms Wapak girls

December 5, 2011

FORT RECOVERY — Wapakoneta Redskins varsity girls basketball coach Rusty Allen knew it was going to take the Redskins’ best effort to beat Fort Recovery on Saturday.

He didn’t get it.

Fort Recovery led tip-to-buzzer and rolled to a 58-44 win over the Redskins at Fort Site Gymnasium.

December 3, 2011

WAYNESFIELD — The seconds ticked down toward zero on the clock with the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers trailing 45-44 in the opening game of the 2011-12 varsity boys basketball season.

Colton Miller drove the base line, put up and off-balance shot and watched the ball snap the strings as the buzzer sounded.
