FOOTBALL: Wapak heads into hornets' nest

September 29, 2011

Sometimes a matchup just screams “epic.”
Friday night’s Western Buckeye League matchup between Wapakoneta and Ottawa-Glandorf certainly appears to be one of those.

O-G is 4-1 and 3-1, and is ranked 10th in Division IV.
Wapak, by all appearances, is walking into the proverbial hornets’ nest.
The Titans are coming off a tough 36-20 loss to the No. 1 ranked Kenton Wildcats, a game they were still in until the final minutes.
