Wapakoneta handles St. Marys for league win

February 7, 2014

The level of success the Wapakoneta Redskins had on offense Thursday dictated the ease with which they held a lead on the scoreboard.

Other than a stretch of six-and-a-half minutes in the first half during which they were held without a field goal, the Redskins were consistently strong inside the arc Thursday.

The St. Marys Roughriders, meanwhile, were not effective enough defensively and were not consistent enough offensively Thursday to keep pace with Wapakoneta.

The gymnasium was named in Zorn’s honor on Jan. 17.
