Washington's big-play offense ends Apollo-Ridge's season with 58-30 win

All week long I had colleagues tell me that this would be a visual football game between two high-powered offenses. I had shot the Washington Prexies earlier in the season but had yet to see star and Pitt recruit Tre Tipton work his magic for Apollo-Ridge. While the game was tight for the entire first half, Washington cruised past a team that looked to have half their roster size. 

Onto the WPIAL semifinals.
