FINDLAY — The Wapakoneta Redskins received their first sense of an opposing force Saturday in their scrimmage of the 2013 season, as Wapak traveled to Findlay on Saturday morning to scrimmage against the Findlay Trojans and the Tiffin Columbian Tornadoes.
The Redskins scored two touchdowns against Columbian and allowed one touchdown to each team in the live down-and-distance session in the latter half of the scrimmage Saturday.
Wapak varsity coach Doug Frye graded his team’s performance Saturday.
Wapakoneta native Brian Garman returned to the mound Sunday for the first time since June 22.
He started Sunday’s game for the Arizona Rookie League Brewers and pitched one scoreless inning.
“I felt pretty good,” Garman said. “As far as getting to the point where I was before I got hurt, I just need to see more hitters.
“I’m pretty comfortable physically. I’m not concerned,” he said. “I just need more repetitions off the mound.”
The Wapakoneta Redskins opened their regular season with a 4-1 win Saturday over the Ottoville Big Green in a non-league varsity girls soccer game in Ottoville.
Wapak senior Mackenzie Custer manufactured two of the team’s four goals Saturday, while senior Sara Warner and sophomore Brianna Pequignot each had one goal.
