Wapakoneta hit enough shots and got Celina to miss their share, as the Redskins won 37-30 in a Division II sectional game on Tuesday night.

The teams met on the same court back on Feb. 4, with the Redskins pulling out a dramatic 41-40 win.

This time around, the Redskins jumped to a big lead in the first half, and were still up by eight going into the fourth.

Each time the Bulldogs hit a shot in the fourth, Wapakoneta came up with an answer. Most of those were at the free throw line. Wapakoneta made 10 of 11 in the final frame as Celina tried to break up momentum.

The Redskins (13-9) advance to Friday's sectional final. They will face #2 seed Wauseon. The Indians (17-4) had a bye in the first round.
