BASKETBALL: 'Skins survive Celina

January 14, 2012

CELINA — Wapakoneta Redskins coach Matt Bradley watched as his team’s lead shrank at break-neck speed.

But it never disappeared. Not completely.

One point was just enough.

Bradley’s Redskins held on for a 53-52 win in a Western Buckeye League varsity boys basketball game Friday at the Celina Fieldhouse after they built a 20-point first-half lead then watched as Celina cut it to one-point by the end of the third quarter.

Celina had three opportunities to take the lead in the final minute but failed to convert on each.

Auglaize County Commissioner Doug Spencer said they had just a little more than $12,000 left in the account going into 2012.

One-by-one the shots rimmed out, clanged off and missed their mark.
