BOWLING: Wapak, Versailles in battle of unbeatens

February 7, 2012

Two regular games and five Baker games.

That’s all that stands between the Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys bowling team and an undefeated season.

Well, that and the equally undefeated Versailles Tigers.

Wapak and Versailles head into the final match of the West Ohio High School Bowling Conference season with identical 14-0 records. The Redskins are listed in first place based on total pins this season.

But that won’t matter when the two teams square off at 1 p.m. Saturday at 20th Century Lanes in Lima.

BASKETBALL: Frank leads Tigers to weekend split

February 7, 2012

WAYNESFIELD — Jacob Frank scored 31 in a pair of varsity boys basketball contests over the weekend. But the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers split the games, both at home, to fall to 6-9 on the season.

W-G lost a tough one to Northwest Central Conference foe Ridgemont as the Golden Gophers came out on top 63-57 on Friday.

With the scored deadlocked at 29-29 at halftime, Ridgemont outscored the Tigers 17-11 in the third quarter to take a six-point lead.

That would be the final margin as W-G battled but came up short of knocking off the 10-5 Golden Gophers in the fourth quarter.

BASKETBALL: Cards clip Trojans

February 6, 2012

BOTKINS — A strong team effort for the New Bremen Cardinals allowed them to travel into Botkins Saturday night and defeat the Trojans 67-48 in a non-league game played at Botkins.

“Our kids really responded tonight,” Cardinals head coach Adam Dougherty said. “It was nice to see the energy they used after the heartbreaking loss we suffered Friday night. I thought we really responded well.”

“Their pressure hurt us a little bit tonight,” Trojans head coach Brent Meyer said. “We also didn’t shoot very well from the floor shooting 29 percent.”

BASKETBALL: Wapak whips St. Marys

February 4, 2012

ST. MARYS — For 16 seconds, the score was tied.
From there on out, it was all Wapak.
The Wapakoneta Redskins rolled to a convincing 60-40 win over the rival St. Marys Roughriders in a Western Buckeye League varsity boys basketball game Friday night at St. Marys High School.
Jake Buzzard’s 3-pointer from the right corner gave the Redskins a 3-0 lead. It was the closest St. Marys would get the rest of the way.
“Any time you can beat your rival on their home floor, in a conference game, good crowd, it feels really good,” Wapak varsity coach Matt Bradley said.

BASKETBALL: Redskins rip Riders

February 3, 2012

Once the nerves subsided, nearly every shot one team took tickled the twine, while the other team struggled to rattle the rim.

The offensive onslaught continued the entire first half as the Wapakoneta Redskins held a 16-0 lead before St. Marys hit a long-range bomb at the first-quarter buzzer. The struggles continued in the second quarter as the Redskins built a 36-7 half-time lead en route to a 61-27 victory.

BASKETBALL: Tigers topple Fairbanks

February 3, 2012

WAYNESFIELD — The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers earned a much needed Northwest Central Conference win, defeating the Fairbanks Panther 66-50 Thursday night in Waynesfield.

The Tigers are now 9-8 overall and 5-1 in NWCC play.

“Our shooting started out great,” W-G varsity coach Ted Patton said.

The Tigers started with a 20-12 lead in the first quarter of play. Hard defensive pressure prevented the Panthers from scoring.

Fairbanks caught up late in the second with rebounds.

“Rebounds did help us initially. They kept us in the game,” Fairbanks varsity coach Brock Oakes said.

BASKETBALL: Wapak, St. Marys renew rivalry

February 2, 2012

Statistically there isn’t a lot riding on Friday night’s showdown between the Wapakoneta Redskins and the St. Marys Roughriders.

Like that’s ever mattered before.

The cross-county foes renew their rivalry with little else on the line besides bragging rights and momentum heading into the home stretch of the season.

Neither team is a contender in the Western Buckeye League standings, where they share identical 1-4 league records.

Both teams are trying to salvage seasons that are on the verge of spiraling out of control.

February 1, 2012

KENTON — Anyone who thought the Wapakoneta Redskins varsity wrestling team was in a rebuilding season might want to reconsider that notion.
