South Adams ends 2-game skid
The ACAC may be Adams Central's conference this year, but South Adams made a statement Friday about belonging in the conversation among the top echelon of the conference's teams.
The Starfires upended Woodlan 28-15 at Berne, paced by James Arnold's stellar night quarterbacking; he completed 13 of 18 passes for 256 yards and four touchdowns to four different receivers. Nick Miller reeled in four catches for 105 yards and a touchdown.
South Adams (6-2, 3-2 ACAC) came in having lost its previous two games – to Adams Central and Jay County.
Woodlan (4-4, 4-1), which reached the Class 2A state championship game last season, knows the sting of losing to South Adams well; it fell to the Starfires in the sectional semifinals in 2016, ending what had been an undefeated season.
The Warriors' Benjamin Reidy threw for 105 yards with a touchdown and an interception Friday, and now they head into the regular-season finale against unbeaten Adams Central (8-0, 5-0).
