A late Adrian push seals loss in competitive contest

By Kellen Porter

Dexter faced Adrian in its season opener this year. Hopes were high as there was a new coach in town and returning stars from last year’s team.

But going up against Adrian was no easy task as the Maples’ high-powered run game has proven extremely difficult for Dexter to stop in recent years. The reason Adrian’s running game is so effective? The team has strong running backs that pick defenses apart with shiftiness and field vision.
