FOOTBALL: Wapak ends Defiance drought

September 24, 2011

DEFIANCE — Connor Pickens had another big night and the Wapakoneta defense rebounded from a sluggish start as the Redskins defeated the Defiance Bulldogs 21-7 at Fred J. Brown Stadium for the first time since 1989.
“We knew it was a tough environment to come into,” Wapak coach Doug Frye said. “We cleared a hurdle tonight. ... We’re making some progress. I’m just a hard guy to please.”
The win upped Wapak’s record to 5-0 on the season and got the Redskins within one win of their first back-to-back winning seasons since 1991.

FOOTBALL: Tigers trump Commodores

September 24, 2011

PERRY TOWNSHIP — The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers spoiled the Perry Commodores’ homecoming game with a 20-7 victory Friday night.
It was the third straight win for W-G, which is now 3-2 overall and 2-0 in the Northwest Central Conference.
“The defense really stepped up tonight,” W-G coach Gary Spencer said. “We kept the Commodores to under 100 yards on offense.”
Both teams had trouble with traction thanks to wet conditions on the field. Perry struggled on its option ground attack while W-G struggled to run the ball and had to rely more on its passing game for the win.

September 24, 2011

The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity girls golf team placed third at the Western Buckeye League tournament Friday at Wapakoneta Country Club.
The tournament was delayed for an hour because of rain. Once it resumed, there were few surprises as the Shawnee Indians rolled to the win.
Shawnee carded a team score of 351. Defiance was second at 383. Wapak shot a 400. And Celina took fourth with a 435.

VOLLEYBALL: Wapak wins thriller

September 23, 2011

Megan Hayzlett sure picked a good time to have a career night.
The junior middle hitter had her best game as a varsity player to help lead the Wapakoneta Redskins to a 3-2 win over the Defiance Bulldogs in a pivotal Western Buckeye League volleyball match Thursday at Wapakoneta High School.
“I told the girls, that is probably the biggest win in my two years here,” Wapak coach Keith Rambin said. “It was probably our best performance of the year when we needed it most.”

PREP ROUNDUP: Wapak 7th at WBL boys golf tourney

September 23, 2011

OTTAWA — The Wapakoneta Redskins came up short in the Western Buckeye League varsity boys golf tournament Thursday at Pike Run Golf Club in Ottawa, finishing seventh.
Wapak shot a team score of 350, just seven strokes out of a top-four finish.
“It’s one of those years that we didn’t consistently shoot a good team total,” Wapak coach Ken Wayman said. “It would have been nice to shoot more consistent and avoid the big number holes, but we simply didn’t not finish strong in the WBL.”

FOOTBALL: Horn headed to CFL's Calgary

September 23, 2011

Waynesfield-Goshen graduate Joe Horn is playing professional football again.
Horn has reached a one-year deal with a one-year option with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League.
The deal comes three weeks after he was released by the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts signed Horn as an undrafted free agent when the NFL lockout ended on July 26.
“I’m just glad to be playing football again,” Horn said in a text message. “I feel like I learned a lot in Indianapolis and now I can actually put what I learned in to playing.”
