Playoff outlook around the area

October 25, 2012

 

The field contending for postseason, as usual, narrowed considerably in week nine play in the area conferences.

As far as league titles go, both Ottawa-Glandorf in the WBL and Coldwater in the MAC clinched outright titles. In the NWCC, it appears Fairbanks and Fort Loramie will share the league title, considering their match ups in the final week.

However, several other teams are formidable in making a bid for the playoffs, and several have already clinched spots.

FOOTBALL: Stakes much different this year for Kenton game

October 25, 2012

 

Last year, it was the game of the year in the Western Buckeye League.

Undefeated Wapakoneta.

Undefeated Kenton. 

This year the stakes are different. Neither team is fighting for an outright WBL title. But both teams are fighting for something.

For the Kenton Wildcats, the outcome of this game weighs heavily on their playoff chances.

For the Redskins, this football game is solely about revenge and pride following the 53-35 loss last year.
