(Adair) Adair-Casey last played in the UNI-Dome in 2009. Since then it’s been three straight years of heartbreak in the quarterfinals.
The unbeaten Bombers will be back in that familiar spot of playing for a trip to Cedar Falls Friday night when they play 8-3 Wayne. Despite being a number 3 seed Wayne has upended a district runner up, Murray and a district runner-up, HLV-Victor along the way. Adair-Casey coach Wade Anderson says he’s not surprised to see Wayne especially after seeing them last year in the playoffs.
Adair-Casey has rolled through the first two rounds putting up 59 and 73 points against Meskwaki and Twin Cedars. Clayton Plowman finished with 8 touchdowns in the win against Twin Cedars. Plowman now has 142 scores in his career which is one shy of the all-time record held by Armstrong-Ringstead's Tyler Tonderum. A win over Wayne would give this group of athletes their first opportunity to play in the UNI-Dome.
Coach Anderson says he’s confident that his offense can score enough point to win, but notes it comes to the defense and whether or not they can slow down a Wayne team that has averaged 67 points per game in the playoffs. They’ve averaged 476 yards in wins against Murray and HLV, Victor.
