The Wapakoneta Redskins have become quite proficient this season at the fourth-quarter comeback.
So when they walked onto the court down nine points with eight minutes to play Friday night against Bath, there was little cause for concern.
But there would be no comeback this time.
It was too little, too late.
The Bath Wildcats used a balanced offensive attack and took advantage of a lackluster showing by the Redskins to pull away to a 61-47 win in a Western Buckeye League varsity boys basketball game at Wapakoneta High School.
BOTKINS â€” The Botkins Trojans varsity boys basketball team returned to action Friday night and rallied for a fourth-quarter comeback win over the Fort Loramie Redskins.
The Redskins led for the first three quarters but couldnâ€™t quite hold on as Botkins stole the lead in the final minutes and came out with a 58-51 victory in a Shelby County League battle at Botkins High School.
The Redskins were only up 25-23 at the half but outrebounded the Trojans the entire first half.
Fort Loramieâ€™s intensity allowed it to pull away 37-31 starting into the third quarter.
