Scores don’t always reflect the game story.
Adair’s 61-9 win over the Wildcats at Chouteau Friday did however.
In less than three minutes from kickoff, the Warriors, with plays from familiar faces, put up their first points on a 6-yard touchdown run from senior running back Zak Woolman.
Senior quarter back Brady Bradburys’ pass found sophomore Hunter Rosebrough for two points.
Bradbury and Woolman put together a seven-play drive resulting in another Woolman touchdown run with 5:39 left.
After a quick Chouteau four and out, Adairs’ Rosebrough ran untouched up the middle from 15-yards out, part of a scoring effort which took only three plays.
Chouteau’s second quarter play was equally discouraging.
Woolmans’ 29-yard, untouched touchdown run up the middle with 8:23 to play didn’t help either.
Adair scored again from an 11-yard run by Bradbury at the 2:08 mark.
Warriors’ sophomore Cody Yoder got in on the scoring onslaught on a 24-yard run with less than a minute left in the half.
Adair led 40-0 at the break.
Chouteau senior tight end Jacob Johnson kicked a 25-yard field goal early in the third.
Two possessions later, Adair’s back’s compiled enough yardage to set up a 2-yard touchdown run from Bradbury.
With three minutes left in the third, and a 47-3 score which showed no sign of evening, officials signaled a continuous clock run.
Woolman increased the margin with a minute left with a run from 35-yards out.
Junior running back Austin Hershberger gave the Wildcat’s their only touchdown on the night with 3:38 in the fourth.
Adair senior runnin back Brynon White picked up 65 yards on the way to the end zone before the game was over.
Adair Head Coach Mark Lippe believes the win is as important as any thus far.
“We challenge ourselves each week to play the best we can,” Lippe said. “We certainly didn’t overlook this game. We remain focused. We prepared for Chouteau with the same intensity as with any opponent.”
Adair takes on Chelsea at home next week.
