Warriors undefeated

Weather forces location change for Adair game

The Adair Warriors improved to 2-0 with a 54-22 win over the Wyandotte Bears in a rainy Friday night game. Wyandotte dropped to 1-1 with the loss.

Originally scheduled as an away game, the contest was moved to Adair at the last minute due to severe weather in the Wyandotte area.

Despite the change in location, the Warriors started fast, with senior running back Zak Woolman returning a kickoff for a touchdown.

"I'm proud of our effort," said Adair Head Coach Mark Lippe. "The kids played really hard."

Despite the win, Lippe saw some areas for improvement in the Warrior's game. "It was a sloppy performance overall," he said. "We had 12 penalties, for over 100 yards in the game. That is completely unacceptable."

Looking at the week ahead, Lippe noted there were a few things the Warriors needed to fix in practice.

"We are going to work on eliminating penalties and playing the proper way," he noted. "We want to represent the school the way we should"

Adair will be at home Friday night hosting Foyil in their homecoming game and the final game before starting district play.

Adair opens district play September 21 with an away game at Caney Valley.
