Knights fall in sectional finals

By The Paper Staff

MONROE -- Southwood’s undefeated run through the season was emphatically cut short Friday night in a 38-0 road loss to Adams Central.

The Class A. No. 2 Flying Jets built a 31-0 lead by the half and coasted to the victory.

The No.3 Knights were held to nine first downs in the loss, and were limited to 151 total yards.

Sophomore quarterback Alex Farr completed 6-of-15 passes for 40 yards, but threw two costly interceptions in the first half, including one returned for a touchdown.

Gabe Lloyd led the ground attack with 19 carries for 55 yards. Farr added 12 carries for 32 yards, and Logan Barley finished with 25 yards on five carries.

Riley Whitesel led the defense with nine total tackles, and Elijah Sutton added seven.

“A special shoutout to the seniors who were all starters for multiple years,” Southwood said in a press release. “Jackson Mller, Aidan Ortega, Jarrett Smith and Cam Ball – all four will be greatly missed. They were a part of three sectional title games, two regionals, two TRC championship games and led us to an undefeated regular season this year. They were a huge part of us getting 30 wins the last three years.”
