Friday night the young, but improving Rittman Fighting Indians took on the New London Wildcats at Rittman Stadium. The team has more players this season, mostly underclassmen, so I look for this season to be another learning experience for the young team. Rittman scored first last night, but New London controlled the rest of the game.
This years band has also increased in size and will be going to all the league away games this season, something that hasn't occured in the past three seasons. Looks to be agood marching season.
Last night's halftime was somewhat abbreviated due to an induction to the Rittman athletic wall of fame. New London's band, the Marching Wildcats, put on a very entertaining show.
The Rittman Indians Marching Band took the field for the first time this season and the fans loved it. They opened their show with "Rock Lobster" made popular by the B-52's. Then as a tribute to the long time band director of Anthony Wayne High School, Bill Moffit, who passed away last winter, the band performed pattern in motion drills, which Mr. Moffit developed while performing the Black Sabath hit, "Iron Man." To conclude the show we asked the audience to swing along as the band performed "Mass Brass."
