Sporting a replacement quarterback, the Wapakoneta Redskins landed three long touchdown passes to distance themselves on the scoreboard when Friday’s game was its closest.
Having seen the winless St. Marys Roughriders cut Wapak’s lead to 13-7 in the second quarter, the Redskins responded with three straight Aaron Huffman passes to Keaton Metz, one before halftime and two more to start the third quarter.
The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers were overwhelmed early in Friday’s game, as their opponent, the Riverside Pirates, used a potent rushing attack to record with a 27-0 halftime advantage.
Riverside had three scoring plays of 20 yards or longer in the first half, and the Pirates eventually posted 438 yards rushing in Friday’s contest, a 40-8 win over the Tigers in a Northwest Central Conference varsity football game.
The loss put the Tigers at 2-6 this season, after winning two games entering Friday following an 0-5 start.
