A potentially intriguing two weeks of football will likely prove to be not as intriguing.

Three teams were tied for first place in the Western Buckeye League standings entering Friday, the midway point in the league season, so games with WBL title implications were a possibility.

That ended Friday, in a meeting between two 4-0 WBL teams, the Wapakoneta Redskins took control of the league title race with a 35-14 win over the Celina Bulldogs, while the other 4-0 WBL team, the St. Marys Roughriders, lost 28-7 against Bath.

The defending league champion Redskins (6-0, 5-0 WBL) control their own destiny for a second straight title.

Cameron Lauck (21 attempts, 182 yards) and Jared Cockerell had two rushing touchdowns for Wapakoneta. Aaron Huffman connected with Kais Chiles for the Redskins' other touchdown.

Caleb Hoyng had one rushing and one passing TD for Celina (4-2, 4-1 WBL).
