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.
â€śI couldnâ€™t ask for a better season,â€ť Wapak center Nick Warner said. â€śItâ€™s been great. I never expected something like this out of my senior year.â€ť
BOTKINS â€” The fact that Dayton Stivers came into Fridayâ€™s sectional matchup with Botkins as the underdog didnâ€™t have Botkins head coach Kevin Lynch fooled at all.
â€śI had scouted them,â€ť Lynch said. â€śWe knew going in that it wasnâ€™t going to be easy.â€ť
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.
