Mustangs unable to stop Adena run game

Adena scored 20 straight points in the second quarter to seize the lead for good on Friday in a 34-20 Scioto Valley Conference win over visiting Westfall.

The evening actually started positivity for the Mustangs, who amassed a 17-play touchdown drive that covered 67 yards.

Quarterback Bryce Wickline had five carries for 27 yards, including moving the sticks on a fourth-and-one from the Adena nine, and capped the drive with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Trent Walters.
