Wapakoneta held the Indians without a field goal for the first 7:28 of the game and rolled to a 63-45 win over Piqua in a season-opening game that wasn’t as close as the final score indicated.

The Redskins jumped out to a 16-3 lead before Piqua converted its first field goal with 32 seconds left in the quarter.

With the Tigers in possession of the ball, they rotated the ball down to a sophomore appearing in his first-every varsity game — an unlikely hero at this stage of the game and season.

Colton Miller drove the base line, put up and off-balance shot and watched the ball snap the strings as the buzzer sounded.
