The St. Marys student section dressed in the Grease theme Friday night in correlation with a game-after dance for Valentine’s Day, but it was Wapakoneta’s Ethan Good who played slick and cool without the hair gel, shades and leather jacket.

Scoring the first seven points for the Redskins in the opening quarter, 16 by the half and ending the night by tallying 31, Good led Wapakoneta to a blowout 75-49 Western Buckeye League win against St. Marys Friday night at Murotech Court.

The Roughriders (5-15, 2-6 WBL) scored first and took a 5-0 lead to open the game, but then Good took over, scoring the first seven points for the Redskins (11-9, 4-4) to take a 7-5 lead with 2:56 left in the first.

The Redskins ended the quarter going on an 11-3 run to take an 11-8 lead after the first eight minutes.

St. Marys scored on two of their first three possessions of the second quarter to tie the game, 13-13 with 6:50 remaining as Derek Jay scored the first five points.

Then the scoring went cold for the Roughriders, who did not score a basket in their next five possessions.

Meanwhile, the Redskins scored nine points off a pair of Roughriders’ missed shots and turnovers to extend the lead to 22-13 with 4:22 remaining in the half.

The Redskins were just warming up, however, as Wapakoneta was 8 of 11 shooting from the field. Good tallied nine points in the second quarter and Wapakoneta laid down 30 points while scoring on 13 out of 15 possessions on the Roughriders in the second period.

By the half, Good scored 16, he scored 15 in the second half to end the night with 31 overall.

At one point in the game, Good had scored 24, while the entire Roughriders team had mustered just 28 points.

Good shot 11 of 21 (52.4 percent) from the field, St. Marys shot 20 of 44 (45.5 percent), garnering one fewer made shot than Good had in attempts.

The Redskins finished 34-27 the rest of the way in the second half, leading by as much as 32 points and hitting five straight 3-pointers to start the third quarter.

Wapakoneta handed the Roughriders another blowout loss and their fifth straight defeat, ninth in their final 10 games.

Jay led the Roughriders with 10 points and three rebounds. Jacob Grannan added eight points, Austin Wilker scored six points and snatched four boards.
