FOOTBALL: 500 rushing yards powers Adams to convincing win over Farmington

ROCHESTER — Rochester Adams closed out the home schedule by rushing for 500 yards in a 42-21 victory over Farmington Friday in OAA White action.

Rochester Adams (4-2, 3-2 in OAA White) quarterback Matt Sokol rushed for 289 yards, including a touchdown run. Highlanders running back Clarence Broadnax had four touchdown and 129 yards on the ground.

"It was a pretty good team effort on our part," Rochester Adams head coach Tony Patritto said. "We ran to Farmington's weak side forcing defenders to make open field tackles."

After spotting Farmington 7 points in the second quarter, Broadnax tied the game with 9:23 left in the half with a 16-yard-run. This was set up by a 47-yard-run by Sokol to the Farmington 25-yard-line.

Sokol gave the Highlanders a 14-7 lead with a two-yard run. Sokol started the drive with a 47-yard run to the Farmington 5-yard-line.

After Farmington tied the game at 14, Sokol took a 52-yard scramble to the one-yard line. Broadnax finished to off with a one-yard plunge to give Rochester Adams a 21-14 lead.

Broadnax scored his third touchdown run in the third quarter with a 28-yard run and would later score again also with a 28-yard run to give Adams a 35-21 lead with 2:18 left in the third quarter.

Sokol left the game with a leg injury with 7:28 left in the game. His status for next week's game against Southfield is uncertain.

"We don't know the extent of the injury," Patritto said. "We are just going to regroup from there against a tough Southfield team, if Matt (Sokol) can't play."

Rochester Adams backup quarterback Joey Prechtel scored from three yards out for the Highlanders with 7:23 to play.

Farmington quarterback Kyle Collins gave the Falcons (1-5, 1-4 in OAA White) a 7-0 lead in the second quarter with a 19-yard pass to Josh Craven.

Craven tied the game at 14-14 with 30 seconds left in the second quarter with a five-yard run.

Collins, who threw for 13 completions on 25 attempts for 213 yards, connected again to Craven with a 23-yard pass play to tie the game at 21-21. Craven caught four passes for 107 yards. Dex Fitzpatrick caught five passes for 40 yards.

"We are a pretty good one-win team," Farmington head coach John Bechtel said. "We played with them throughout the game. We can play just about with any team."
