January 16, 2012

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.

BASKETBALL: Fourth-quarter drought dooms Wapak

January 13, 2012

One-by-one the shots rimmed out, clanged off and missed their mark.
And one-by-one, so did the Redskins’ hopes.
A dismal fourth-quarter shooting performance doomed Wapakoneta in a 51-43 loss to the Celina Bulldogs in a Western Buckeye League varsity girls basketball game Thursday at Wapakoneta High School.
Wapak fell to 5-5 overall and 2-2 in the WBL. Celina is 8-3 and 3-1.
Sara Warner’s transition layup at the 6:50 mark was Wapak’s only field goal in the fourth quarter as the Redskins shot a paltry 1-of-13 (7.7 percent) from the floor.

The Trojans survived a slow start and held only a 4 point lead after the first eight minutes of play. They dominated from that point and outrebounded the Jets 47-12 to ease their way to the win.
