FOOTBALL: 'Skins blast Chieftains

August 27, 2011

Pretty much the only thing Wapakoneta Redskins football coach Doug Frye was smiling about Friday night was the final score.
Frye’s Redskins trounced the Bellefontaine Chieftains 48-0 in the season opener for both teams at Harmon Field.
Wapak scored 21 points in the final four minutes of the first half to turn a 14-0 game into a rout.
In spite of what the scoreboard read, Frye saw room for improvement.
“I’m happy with the start,” Frye said. “But not pleased.”
The Redskins used two big plays from senior Kevin Kraft and a big game rushing by senior Connor Pickens to pull away to the win.

FOOTBALL: Wapak honors '86 team

Jim Elshire remembers that day in the summer of 1986, the one when senior Kyle Stroh pulled into his driveway and told him the Redskins were going to win the next season.
And win they did.
A lot — becoming only the second Wapakoneta football team to go 10-0 in the regular season and the first to make the playoffs.
Elshire, the coach of that ’86 team, was among the honorees in attendance at a reception and ceremony honoring the team Friday night before the Redskins’ season opener against Bellefontaine at Harmon Field.
Stroh remembers that day too.

Big third- and fourth-down plays by the Cardinals hurt the Tigers’ chances for victory.
“The biggest thing is coming up with big plays,” W-G coach Gary Spencer said. “We may have missed tackles but we need to learn from our mistakes and I think we’ll be fine.”
