After rolling out to a 20-0 win in the first game, the Wapakoneta Redskins varsity baseball team appeared poised to make quick work of the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers in Game 2 of a season-opening doubleheader Saturday at Wapakoneta High School.
The Tigers would have none of it.
W-G fought valiantly and had the tying run at the plate in the top of the seventh inning but fell just short in a 5-2 loss.
While they still have two more performances on the horizon as the school year draws to a close, the nine seniors, who are members of Singsation saw the Music & More competition hosted by the Wapakoneta High School as their their last hurrah and a culmination of four years of hard work.

While talk revolved mainly around the 2012 Farm Bill, many other topics both inside and outside the farming industry were touched on by Boehner and members of a select panel.
