Wapakoneta went ice cold in a Monday make-up game against host Minster Monday as the Redskins were just 4-for-28 from behind the arc in a 44-38 loss to the Wildcats in boys non-league basketball action.
Wapakoneta Redskins varsity girls basketball coach Rusty Allen challenged junior post player Sarah Pothast to make her presence felt in the paint.
He also challenged his team to make their presence felt on the boards, especially on the offensive glass.
Despite a huge comeback in the fourth quarter by the Botkins Trojans boys’ team, it didn’t prove to be quite enough as they fell to the Allen East Mustangs, 71-63, Monday night in varsity non-conference action.
Showing absolutely no fear of failure, the Wapakoneta boys blistered the nets Saturday as they shot a even 50 percent from three-point range and drained 14 treys on there way to a 57-38 shellacking of host Sidney Saturday night.
The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers dominated the Cory-Rawson Hornets, 81-27, on Saturday to pick up their first win of the season.
Madison Buffenbarger led all scorers with 25 points and tied the Tigers’ school record with eight three-pointers made.
After draining six three-pointers in the first quarter and earning a five-point halftime lead, Wapakoneta overcame very cold shooting in the third quarter - the Redksins opened the period by going 1-for-9 from the floor - to post 64-53 win over visiting Piqua in the season opener for both teams F
