Adair beats tough Salina squad Tuesday

ADAIR — The Adair Lady Warriors move to 20-0 after defeating Salina 63-46 at home Tuesday.

Salina put up a fight in the first half against undefeated Adair, trailing by one point with less than three minutes to go in the first quarter.

A three-point play from sophomore Kylie Looney and 3-pointer from junior Rendi Rogers provided the Warriors a nine-point advantage after one quarter.

Aggressive play from both teams on both sides of the ball continued in the second period, though Adair dominated the boards.

Salina freshman scoring power from beyond the arc via Courtney Condit and Jessi Jordan kept the game close heading into the half.

Adair junior Molly Kerr went on an inside shooting spree in the third, dropping 10 buckets to help extend the Lady Warriors lead to nine after three.

A 3-pointer from Looney and six points from junior Bailey Stephens (four points per offensive boards) opened an 18-point lead with three minutes remaining.

Stephens led all scorers with 18 points.

Adair Head Coach Scott Winfield was satisfied with his team’s resiliency.

“They (Salina) aren’t a bad team at all,” Winfield said. “They shot the ball from three exceptionally well. We tell the girls there’s going to be close games. There’s not a 10-point bucket out there, so you can’t make it up in one trip. And I think our team did a good job battling. We had 20 offensive boards, so we out rebounded them really bad. You take away 20 second shots and it’s a tighter game.”
