WAPAKONETA — The Bath Wildcats used a balanced offensive attack and took advantage of a lackluster showing by the Redskins to pull away to a 61-47 win in a Western Buckeye League varsity boys basketball game at Wapakoneta High School.

“It seems like we’ve got to be down 10 points in the fourth quarter to start really playing hard defensively,”  Wapak varsity coach Matt Bradley said.  “It’s got to be that way all the time.”
