DEFIANCE – In a battle of Green Meadows Conference rivals, it was Tinora who made the plays down the stretch as the Rams posted a 55-48 win over Wayne Trace in Division III sectional final action at Defiance High School Friday evening.
The Rams recorded their fifth consecutive victory over the Raiders in the past three seasons to advance to Thursday’s district semifinal against Archbold at Napoleon High School. Ottawa Glandorf and Evergreen will square off in the other semifinal Thursday.
Wayne Trace had chances but failed to take advantage of early opportunities to seize control of the contest. The Raiders end their season with a record of 20-3, posting the tenth 20-win season in school history.
