Instead, the Indians looked like the same well-oiled machine that emerged from the regular season atop the Midwest Athletic Conference standings.

Fort Recovery’s jackrabbit starts to the first and third quarters built up a cushion that carried the state’s third-ranked to a Division IV sectional crown with a 54-35 win over Minster in the opening game at The Palace on Friday.
