Sara Warner and the rest of the Wapakoneta Redskins just kept shooting Friday, and those shots just kept going in.

The Botkins Trojans played Friday’s game on a roller coaster, starting at the top in the first half before falling briefly in the third period only to get back to the top.

The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers, with two freshmen making huge impacts, ran past the Shawnee Indians on Friday to notch a win in their season opener.
