Bowling Green set to host Adams in Class AAA playoffs

Bowling Green School will be playing in its first football playoff game since the 2015 season Friday night when the Bucs host Adams County Christian School.
The third-seeded Buccaneers tallied an 8-2 record this season and captured the District 4AAA title after posting a 2-0 record.
No. 14 Adams County Christian School comes in with a 2-7 record, but had to forfeit seven games because of an ineligible player.
The teams met on Oct. 5 and Bowling Green lost to Adams, 60-25.
“It’s an unfortunate situation. There’s nothing we can do about it. It’s a different situation because it’s not Homecoming Week, we know who they are, we are more prepared mentally and we know the mistakes we made,” Bowling Green coach Boomer Nunez said. “We didn’t do well with all of that adversity the last time. The most important thing is the kids are confident and excited.”
Nunez talked about the keys to this game.
“We gave up four touchdowns on defense last time (against Adams) because we weren’t lined up right,” Nunez said. “Knowing your alignment and knowing your assignment. It takes zero athletic ability to do those two things.”
One of the players Bowling Green is relying on is quarterback Johntae McDowell, who has been solid all season.
Nunez said that “Johntae has to be Johntae.”
“Every game he played in at St. Paul’s was as big as this, so this should be just another game for him,” Nunez said.
Another player Nunez said they are relying heavily on is their playmaker Cameron Bell.
Adams won its final two regular season games, with a 39-6 victory over Cathedral Unit School and 47-22 win against Central Private School.
The winner will face either sixth-seeded and the defending Class AAA champion Starkville Academy or No. 11 seed Cathedral Unit School.
