BASKETBALL: Wapak faces early test in Elida

December 15, 2011

By all appearances, the Western Buckeye League is going to the dogs in 2011-2012.

The Bulldogs.

Namesakes Elida, Defiance and Celina are the preseason favorites in the league, with Elida at the top of the list by most estimates.

The Wapakoneta Redskins will find out where they fit into the mix when they travel to the Elida Fieldhouse on Friday night to tip off the WBL season.

Elida added Shawnee transfer Cory Royster to an attack that already featured the league’s top player in University of Akron-bound Reggie McAdams and arguably the league’s best point guard in Dakota Mathias.

BASKETBALL: 'Skins stop 'Stangs

December 14, 2011

HARROD — Wapakoneta’s Courtney Knippen may be sporting a black eye but there is definitely nothing wrong with her shooting eye as she pumped in a game-high 33 points to propel the Redskins past Allen East, 72-40, in a non-league confrontation Tuesday night at Allen East High School.

The Redskins improve to 3-1 overall and Allen East evens its record at 3-3.

Knippen was a scintillating 12-of-14 from the floor and a perfect 7-for-7 from the charity stripe.

BASKETBALL: Rangers rally past Botkins

December 14, 2011

The New Knoxville Rangers used a strong fourth quarter to put the Trojans away, 50-38, in a varsity girls basketball game Tuesday at Botkins High School.

“It was an ugly game,” Rangers varsity coach Tim Hegemier said. “I was really disappointed in our defense and the offense, but you are going to have those games.”

BASKETBALL: Cards clip Trojans

December 13, 2011

BOTKINS — New Bremen sophomore Julie Brown’s jumper with five seconds left allowed the Cardinals to defeat the Botkins Trojans 50-48 on Monday night.

It was a tight battle throughout the game with the lead changing hands often, but the clean jumper off a turnover by Brown gave New Bremen its first road win of the season.

“We needed this win,” Cardinals varsity coach Randy Eckert said. “It was one of those games that they got a lead and we got a lead and it went back and forth and we were just fortunate to win it at the end.”

BASKETBALL: Ada outshoots Wapak

December 12, 2011

Typically, a 60-percent shooting night would be cause for celebration.

Typically.

But when your opponent shoots 67 percent and knocks down 14 three-pointers, well, that makes the climbing a little tough.

The Wapakoneta Redskins found out just how tough in a 70-55 loss to the Ada Bulldogs in a varsity boys basketball game Friday night at Wapakoneta High School.

Ada was playing in its first game of the season. But the Bulldogs didn’t look like it, shooting 24-of-36 (67 percent) overall from the floor and 14-of-21 (67 percent) from three-point range.

BASKETBALL: W-G gives New Knoxville scare

December 12, 2011

NEW KNOXVILLE — For most of the first half the New Knoxville Rangers basketball team controlled the action against the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers Friday night as they doubled the score on the Tigers 28-13 at halftime.

In the second half the Tigers caught fire and pulled within 10 at the end of the third. They closed the gap to two points a couple times in the fourth quarter, but the Rangers hit a few free throws down the stretch to defeat the Tigers 50-44 at the Barn in New Knoxville.
