WT claims step 3 in GMC race

HAVILAND – Following Friday night’s 47-14 blasting of Edgerton, Wayne Trace head football coach Bill Speller told his team that he believed they had just ousted the second best football team they have played all year in climbing to the third step in their challenge for a Green Meadows Conference football title.

But things won’t get easier, Speller told his team. Two of the toughest opponents on their GMC schedule are lurking back to back for the Raiders. This week, the WT grid iron players will tackle Hicksville, followed by an encounter with a premier Tinora team.

“We have special athletes with a lot of ability,” said Speller following the contest. “They played a heck of a game tonight. They gave people something to think about. There is still a big mission ahead; the GMC title and playoffs are the big picture.”
