How many people know that Adair County is undefeated (5-0)? This is a big game for these two teams. Adair County needs a win to stay undefeated and perhaps finally move into the top 10 rankings in 3A. KCD (4-1) needs this one to show they can beat a tough opponent and are a serious threat in the 1A playoffs. What is the game plan for each team? Can someone tell us what each team's strengths and weaknesses are? What are the key matchups?

KCD's strategy--A couple of critical items

 

1)Keep scoring like you've been scoring. The personnel and offense package adjustments made after the Lexington Christian game were significant, and have paid off thus far. The Bearcats are just behind Russellville for the top scoring squad in 1A. Defense is a real Jeckyll and Hyde affair-- lots of big plays against it then a few big stops. The O really has to help the D to stay in the game.

 

2)Depth management--The LCA game melted down in the second half after losing a couple of key starters to injury and leg cramps. Adair County as a 3A school is bound to outnumber the Bearcats. Substituting starters with the limited number of kids on the bench who can make plays is going to be a challenge, but critical on a night that figures to be hot and draining physically.

 

3)Hang in early. If Adair sprints ahead to a quick lead, it more than likely going to have a "see, I told you we couldn't hang with these guys" effect emotionally. Swap a couple of scores early and it'll be a much more entertaining night for KCD fans....and just a better game overall. KCD has some talent--especially at the skill positions, but Adair looks very impressive.
