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.
