Redskins eliminated by surging Elida

Sports Editor

Down one starter, the Wapakoneta Redskins were no match for an surging Elida Bulldogs squad in a high school boys soccer Division II district semifinal.

On its home field, led by Matt Paulik's hat trick, Elida dominated Wapakoneta in a 6-0 win Monday at Elida Middle School, as the Redskins played without junior captain Dylan Lord.

Elida (12-5-1) has won four straight games, including two against the Western Buckeye League champion Ottawa-Glandorf and the WBL's third-place team, Wapakoneta (10-6-2).
