(September 27th, 2014): In Wauseon, kids don’t play cowboys and indians. Instead, the Indians have always done battle against the Blue Streaks in back yards across the area.
As kids grow up and advance through school, those games leave the realm of fantasy and become reality. Thus was the case when the junior varsity incarnation of the Wauseon Indians took on those Blue Streaks from Archbold in an NWOAL grudge match.
With a perfect 3-0 record on the line, the Indians challenged their rivals on the field of play. In a lopsided affair, Wauseon dominated the game, moving the ball at will and refusing the same courtesy back to Archbold. In fact, holding the Blue Streaks scoreless, the Wauseon defense didn’t allow their opponents to do much at all.
When it was all said and done, it was the Indians of Wauseon who stood victorious over Archbold, 28-0. The Indians improved to 4-0 on the season with the convincing victory.
One couldn’t imagine a more perfect victory in their back yard.
