BASKETBALL: Fourth-quarter drought dooms Wapak

January 13, 2012

One-by-one the shots rimmed out, clanged off and missed their mark.
And one-by-one, so did the Redskins’ hopes.
A dismal fourth-quarter shooting performance doomed Wapakoneta in a 51-43 loss to the Celina Bulldogs in a Western Buckeye League varsity girls basketball game Thursday at Wapakoneta High School.
Wapak fell to 5-5 overall and 2-2 in the WBL. Celina is 8-3 and 3-1.
Sara Warner’s transition layup at the 6:50 mark was Wapak’s only field goal in the fourth quarter as the Redskins shot a paltry 1-of-13 (7.7 percent) from the floor.

BASKETBALL: Trojans thump Fairlawn

January 9, 2012

BOTKINS — The Botkins girls came to within one game of evening out their record with a convincing 47-20 win over Fairlawn on Saturday.

The Trojans survived a slow start and held only a 4 point lead after the first eight minutes of play. They dominated from that point and outrebounded the Jets 47-12 to ease their way to the win.

“We were a little slow getting started and you could tell we hadn’t played in a while,” varsity coach Don Mack said. “We had some time off. An ugly win is still a win.”

BASKETBALL: Bath dumps Wapak

January 7, 2012

The Wapakoneta Redskins have become quite proficient this season at the fourth-quarter comeback.

So when they walked onto the court down nine points with eight minutes to play Friday night against Bath, there was little cause for concern.

But there would be no comeback this time.

It was too little, too late.

The Bath Wildcats used a balanced offensive attack and took advantage of a lackluster showing by the Redskins to pull away to a 61-47 win in a Western Buckeye League varsity boys basketball game at Wapakoneta High School.

The Redskins were only up 25-23 at the half but outrebounded the Trojans the entire first half.
Fort Loramie’s intensity allowed it to pull away 37-31 starting into the third quarter.
