Let’s talk football for a few minutes.
X’s and O’s, touchdowns and tackles, passes and punts, handoffs and hits.

September 2, 2011

The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys golf team defeated the Celina Bulldogs 168-184 in a Western Buckeye League dual match Thursday at the Wapakoneta Country Club.
Wapak’s 168 was its lowest round of the year at home and its first time to break 170.
“When you have two scores in the 30’s and two in the 40’s, the team score will improve,” Wapak coach Ken Wayman said. “We are improving match-to-match. But I still think our best score is yet to come.
“All we need is to have two guys shoot consistently in the low 40’s and we will have a really good score.”

WAYNESFIELD — If the first week is any implications of what is to come in week two, the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers could be in for another game of offensive highlight reels against Fort Recovery.
The Tigers have taken deep steps with their football program, winning 51 games in the last seven years. However, an often less-than-impressive schedule often left them untested. As a result, the school’s first playoff win in their history has still eluded them despite their regular season success.
About three years ago, the coaching staff began to formulate a plan to take care of that problem.
