DEFIANCE — Connor Pickens had another big night and the Wapakoneta defense rebounded from a sluggish start as the Redskins defeated the Defiance Bulldogs 21-7 at Fred J. Brown Stadium for the first time since 1989.
“We knew it was a tough environment to come into,” Wapak coach Doug Frye said. “We cleared a hurdle tonight. ... We’re making some progress. I’m just a hard guy to please.”
The win upped Wapak’s record to 5-0 on the season and got the Redskins within one win of their first back-to-back winning seasons since 1991.

It was the third straight win for W-G, which is now 3-2 overall and 2-0 in the Northwest Central Conference.

Both teams had trouble with traction thanks to wet conditions on the field. Perry struggled on its option ground attack while W-G struggled to run the ball and had to rely more on its passing game for the win.
