Waynesfield-Goshen set for first game under new coach

August 28, 2014

WAYNESFIELD — Last season, the Waynesfield-Goshen varsity football team opened their season with just two seniors, on the road against a veteran-laden Jefferson Wildcats squad.

The result was a 48-3 beatdown at the hands of the Wildcats when senior Austin Jettinghoff threw 7 of 8 for 138 yards and four touchdowns for Jefferson at Stadium Park in Delphos.

This season has a different feel to it, however, as the Tigers will host the Wildcats on Friday night to open the 2014 season.

The Wapakoneta Redskins overcame a rocky start to their scrimmage Saturday but settled down to show some positive outcomes, as Wapakoneta topped the Minster Wildcats, 21-14, in three quarters of football.

Quarterbacks were not subject to live tackling in Friday’s scrimmage, as officials’ whistles often blew with the QBs sitting in the pocket or scrambling for yardage.

Kicks and punts were allowed but blocking and tackling on returns were not.

The Tigers finished 2-8 overall and 2-4 in the Northwest Central Conference, however at Cory-Rawson High School on Friday, W-G showed improvement and talent along with some techniques that need some ironing out.

“Overall, we need to clean up our performance, but we are coming together nicely,” said Tigers coach Tyler Turner.

And the winner is ...

July 18, 2014

The greatest athletes of Wapakoneta gathered near the Auglaize River last night to race in one of the most grueling, challenging and surprising competitions any of them could imagine.

OK, maybe they weren’t the best athletes in the area, and maybe the race wasn’t the most grueling, but a group of about 85 people did come together and have some fun for a good cause with a large crowd cheering them on.

The bed races are one of the events that help to kick off the annual Summer Moon Festival, and this year’s wet, wild adventure did not disappoint.
