QUAPAW — Adair generated 451 yards in total offense during a 63-8 romp over Quapaw Friday night in a District 2A-7 battle.
“We knew what we were getting in to,” Quapaw head coach Brad Homer said. “They are well coached and play hard. I appreciate Coach Lippe (Adair head coach Mark Lippe) ... they could have scored a lot more and done a lot more if they had wanted to. He didn't play any starters in the second half.”
The 10th-ranked Warriors – running from a no-huddle offense - erupted for 33 points in the first quarter and followed that up with another three scores in the second to open up a 57-8 advantage.
“We really played well,” said Lippe, who earned football all-state honors at Wyandotte and then played at the University of Tulsa. “We had struggled the last couple weeks as far as running the football and we really wanted to come out early and establish that part of the game plan.”
The Warriors did just that, getting touchdown runs of 7 yards by Wes Yoder, 2 and 7 yards by Brady Bradbury and 3 yards by Zak Woolman.
Bradbury hit Woolman with a 45-yard TD strike with eight seconds left in the opening frame.
Adair then went back to work on the ground, getting a 17-yard run from Woolman and a 7-yard scamper by Bradbury to balloon the score to 49-8.
The Warriors final score of the half came on a 19-yard pass from Bradbury to Cambell with 25 seconds remaining. Bradbury ran the conversion.
“You find yourself standing back, trying to learn something, see how they do what they are doing,” Homer said. “It wasn't fun to be on the receiving end of it. They beat you the old-fashioned way, though They take care of business. They don't whoop and holler and get in your face. Everybody's jerseys are tucked in.”
Adair capped the scoring with a 1-yard run with 8:36 left in the game.
The Wildcats' only score of the night came on a 2-yard run by Tyler Beets with 5:50 left in the first quarter. Beets teamed with Tyler Bacon on the conversion.
Woolman, a transfer from Vinita, gained 158 yards on 13 carries.
“He is used to more of an option-type system and we are more of a one-back, inside-zone type team,” Lippe said. “He has learned where the cutback lanes are.”
Bradbury completed 6 of 11 passes for 128 yards and the two scores.
Michael Fraley, who had 16 catches in the Warriors first three games, had only two against Quapaw, netting 36 yards.
“They did good job knowing where No. 11 (Fraley) was at,” Lippe said. “He is our best player. They made sure they had two people on him. We do have lot of kids that can catch the football, though.”
Four different players had at least one reception and eight players had one carry or more in the game.
Quapaw finsihed with 135 yards in total offense, 111 of that coming on the ground.
Beets rushed for 41 yards and completed 4 of 6 passes for 24 yards. He was intercepted twice.
Quapaw (1-3, 0-1) hosts 11th-ranked Wyandotte on Friday.
