By Drew Terhall

DARKE COUNTY — Here are the scores and stats from the last week of regular season high school football around the county.

Ansonia 46 (10-0, 8-0) vs Mississinawa Valley 6 (0-10, 0-8)

The Ansonia Tigers are outright WOAC football champions with this win. They are back to back conference champions after sharing the title last season.

Head coach Adam Hall said it’s been a great season so far with this great group of kids.

“We have good football players on our team, but they’re great kids and fun to be around. I think that’s the thing that sometimes you might miss in all of this. It’s fun to be at practice, fun to be a part of these games, fun to be in the weight room,” Hall said. “We have great kids, we work really hard. I couldn’t be more proud of them.”

Ansonia was up 40-0 at halftime. Senior Garrett Stammen had three rushing touchdowns in the first half. Senior Keegen Weiss also had a rushing touchdown. Senior Nick Burns had a 21-yard passing touchdown to senior Wyatt Spencer.

In the second half, sophomore Cainan Robinson had a two-yard rushing touchdown to go up 46-0. Just before the game ended, Mississinawa Valley sophomore Bryce Watson threw the ball to sophomore Kyle Wehrkamp in the endzone. The ball tipped off an Ansonia defender and into Wehrkamp’s hands for six.

This is the second time Ansonia was 10-0 in school history. The first time was in 2009 when Hall was a senior on that team. Hall said it was nice to get this win and clinch the title at home this time around in front of their fans.

Mississinawa Valley ends their injury plagued season with a 0-10 record. They will graduate eight seniors.

Ansonia earned the two seed in the Division VII playoffs and will host the 15th seed Lockland on Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. The Tigers will host the first two playoff games.

Hall said he feels confident his team can make a run by taking it one game at a time.

“We know in the playoffs, everything steps up a level. We don’t know who we’re going to play yet, but you got to earn your way into the playoffs. They’re all going to be good games,” Hall said. “We feel like we have a team that can compete with anyone. We’re going to take it one week at a time and see how far we can go.”
