The Wapakoneta Redskins rallied twice against the Celina Bulldogs in a back-and-forth contest early, breaking through by scoring seven runs with two outs in the fifth inning, adding five more in the sixth to help compete the win by run-rule Thursday in a high school baseball Division II district semifinal at Bluffton University.

Wapakoneta will face Bath, which upset St. Marys in the other semifinal, at 3 p.m. Saturday in the district final at Bluffton University. The game was originally set to start at 2 p.m. but was delayed one hour due to Wapakoneta's graduation ceremony in the morning.
