Adair defeats McCreary Central 49-20 in thrilling game


From school records to a one-handed interception, this game was in Adair County’s favor the whole way. The Indians went into the game against McCreary Central looking to build off their win from last week and they did just that.

Dynamic duo Solomon Stonebraker and Lane Grant were the story of this game. Solomon’s 240 receiving yards and three touchdowns would be enough to set the school record for receiving yards in one game.

For Grant, he was spectacular on both sides of the ball. On offense he passed for 310 yards and four touchdowns. He was also able to make an impact on the ground, rushing for 77 yards and a touch-down. While the offensive stats are impressive, Grant received his shine this week on defense.

On a play where McCreary Central aired the ball out for a deep pass, Grant tracked the ball down and made an amazing one-handed interception. He would then return the ball over 100 yards to make one of the best plays of the season in the state of Kentucky.

Another player who stood out defensively was once again junior linebacker Timothy Streeval. Timothy built up 13 total tackles throughout the game, seven of which were solo tackles. Timothy’s hard hitting play style on defense makes him a huge asset to the team.

When asked about the importance of the 49-20 win, quarterback Lane Grant said, “Going into this game we knew this is a game we needed to win. We know how good of a team we are, and we know that we have got to be playing the best football we can play going into the post season.”

The Indians improved their record to 6-3 in their win over the Raiders and look to build on that next week against Metcalfe County. This will be the last regular season game of the year, and this will be the game that sets the tone for the Indians going into the playoffs. The game starts at 7 p.m. at home and tickets can be bought at the gate.
