FOOTBALL: Nine down, one to go

SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — Another hurdle cleared.
And now the big one.
The Wapakoneta Redskins came up with a pair of big third-quarter stops and pulled away to a 41-14 win over the Shawnee Indians on Friday night at Shawnee.
Wapak remained unbeaten at 9-0 overall and 8-0 in the Western Buckeye League.
The win sets up what looks to be an epic Week 10 matchup against the also undefeated Kenton Wildcats for all the proverbial marbles.
“I couldn’t ask for a better season,” Wapak center Nick Warner said. “It’s been great. I never expected something like this out of my senior year.”

The Stivers team, loaded with eight seniors, matched up well with both Botkins speed and physical style of play before finally succumbing in Botkins’ 3-2 win.
Stivers showed they had come ready to play by quickly scoring the first goal of the game and leaving the Trojans scratching their heads.
