After a late start to the season because of the playoff push the Waterford’s football team made, the Wildcats have got off to a hot start this season with the their explosive offense. They have won by at least 20 points every game this season besides their one loss on the season.
On Dec. 20, the Wildcats took on the Miller Falcons and showed of their offensive dominance once again as the Wildcats won 93-54 in the TVC-Hocking. Waterford came in and took the game over from the start in the first quarter to give the wildcats a 22-8 lead and went into half 46-23, Waterford were able to play 14 guys and had four players with double-doubles. Jordan Welch had 16 points and 12 boards, Andrew Thieman with 15 points and 15 boards while Bryce Hilverding and Tyler McCutcheon added 15 points each.
However, Miller did not go without a fight. They had three players score double digits with Alec Eveland’s 16 points. Colby Bartley added 14 and Carson Starlin with 13. These three combined for 43 of the Falcons 54.
Miller had fight in the third as they matched Waterford 18-18, but Waterford was too much in the fourth as the Wildcats put up 29 points. This dropped miller to 2-3 overall and 2-2 in league play and will be taking on New Lexington Dec. 29. Waterford now improves to 3-1 overall and 3-0 in conference play and will have a long break until they take on Trimble Jan. 6.
The Lady Wildcats have continued their dominance when they took on the Miller Falcons as the boys did. Waterford would come away with the win with a final score of 69-20. This Lady wildcats team has left off just as they did last year and the lady and boys basketball teams were able to have a clean sweep of the Miller Falcons.
Coming off the win against Miller, the Lady Wildcats continued their excellence as they beat the Southern Tornadoes 58-19 on Dec. 22. This improved the lady wildcats to 7-0 overall and 6-0 in conference play.

This game was more about the dominance the Waterford defense showed early on and continued it through the game as they compiled 10 turnovers in the first quarter and 32 for the whole game. This is just remarkable and shows that these girls are ready and showing that they have what it takes to get back to state again this season. They are definitely showing that defense wins championships. Southern drops to 5-4 and 3-3 in conference play as they have a long break before taking on Trimble on Jan. 5. Waterford will look to continue their perfect season on Dec. 27 against Fort Frye.
