SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP â 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.
âI couldnât ask for a better season,â Wapak center Nick Warner said. âItâs been great. I never expected something like this out of my senior year.â
BOTKINS â The fact that Dayton Stivers came into Fridayâs sectional matchup with Botkins as the underdog didnât have Botkins head coach Kevin Lynch fooled at all.
âI had scouted them,â Lynch said. âWe knew going in that it wasnât going to be easy.â
The Stivers team, loaded with eight seniors, matched up well with both Botkins speed and physical style of play before finally succumbing in Botkinsâ 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.
