ADM’s offense struggled for the second consecutive game, as the Tigers were held to just 247 yards from scrimmage–a far cry below their season average of 391 yards per game.
Quarterback Kolby Whisner was finally able to take his team down the field for long drives on four consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter, but on the team’s three trips into the red zone in that span, they came away with no points.
Whisner ended the night 15 of 32 for 201 yards and an interception. His connection with wide receiver Tate Jensen has proved to be the only reliable source of offense for the Tigers the past two games.
Head coach Mike Whisner said establishing the ground game would be crucial for his Tigers against Lewis Central, but ADM could only muster 46 yards rushing on 25 attempts. Tailback Grant Goeden was held under 40 yards on the ground for a second consecutive game.
The Tigers will have a great opportunity to get the running game back on track this Friday against 1-4 Atlantic. The Trojans have struggled against the run in their two games facing District 1 foes this season, giving up an average of 223 yards on the ground.
It’s also the big Homecoming game this Friday for ADM, which should add a considerable amount of intrigue. Tune in to 107.9FM, KKRF, for pregame at 7 and kick-off at 7:30.
