Miamisburg cut Wayne's lead to five in the thid quarter in a battle of GWOC titans, but the Warriors showed why they've had a steady presence in the state finals with a quick-scoring response.

Tippecanoe played Trotwood twice in three years in the playoffs, and found the Rams just as tough in the regular season, losing 43-6 in a GWOC crossover game.
