WAPAKONETA — The unbeaten Wapakoneta Redskins took care of business Friday against the winless Defiance Bulldogs, and in the process, received some help from the Kenton Wildcats.
Wapakoneta (6-0, 5-0), with a huge contest looming next Friday against the Ottawa-Glandorf Titans, shut down Defiance during a 38-0 win Friday in a Western Buckeye League varsity football contest.
ST. MARYS — St. Marys was pinned back to its own seven yard line, protecting an eight-point lead with 5:40 left in Friday night’s homecoming game against rival Celina.
Celina knew what was coming. They just couldn’t stop the bruising, powerful rushing duo of a freshman in his first breakout game and a senior who has been punishing opposing defenses all season.
