ADAIR — Four touchdowns only four plays rocked Wyandotte and set the tone for Adair’s 50-18 District 2A-8 win here Friday, Oct. 6.
“We took a couple steps back,” Wyandotte head coach Brad Homer said. “I thought the quarterback (Austin Hines) played really well. I just don’t understand some of the things we did. I am kinda frustrated.”
The Warriors (4-2, 2-1), coached by former Miamian Rob Gilstrap, got a 51-yard run from Jacob Lappe, a 49-yard pass from Hines to Barrett Bradbury, a 23-yard Bradbury-to-Bryce Martin pass and a 94-yard fumble return by Garrett Long in rapid succession.
“You turn around and it was 28-0 just like that in the first quarter. Four plays and four touchdowns,” Homer said.
Adair (4-2, 2-0) followed that up with runs of 3, 20 and 1 yard by Hines to before the Bears (4-2, 2-1) got on the board with a 19-yard TD reception by Helawa Williams to make it 50-8 at the half.
Caleb Hurst scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter and Trey Jones reeled in a 29-yard pass from Jordon Burney in the fourth quarter.
The game was delayed 20 minutes because of a power outage on one side of the field in the first half.
“We were flat after that,” Homer said.
The win was the eighth straight for the Warriors against Wyandotte and the ninth in he last 10 meetings.
Adair has scored 50-plus points in four of the past six games.
“We’ve just got to keep working,” Homer said. “We still control our own destiny. We’re exactly where we were last year. We’ve just got to go beat Commerce, Caney and Chelsea. If we can do those things, we can take second and host a first-round playoff game like our goal is each year.”
Wyandotte hosts Commerce Friday, Oct. 13.
