Adrian-Jordan Valley gets into football slugfest

ADRIAN – Coach Billy Wortman was still shaking his head this weekend about the football encounter his Adrian-Jordan Valley team had in Lowell.

“I’ve never had to put up 80 points in order to win,” Wortman said.

Last Friday’s 1A game against the Red Devils went on for nearly three hours and ended up with the highest point total of any game in the state.

Adrian-Jordan Valley won 82-76.

“It was eternal,” said Coach Pat Todd of Lowell. “I’ve seen slower tennis matches.”

One other team matched Adrian’s production last week as Joseph beat Huntington 80-0. The state saw other high scoring matches. Elmira beat Siuslaw 74-6 in 4A action and Reynolds beat Madison 67-0 in 6A action.

The Antelopes didn’t let the long ride . . .
