By Cort Reynolds

Injury-plagued Ada battled well but dug too big of an early deficit and lost 47-21 at Delphos Jefferson in a Northwest Conference bout Saturday night, September 25, at Stadium Park.

DJ raced to a 34-0 lead on the strength of several big plays and Bulldog turnovers. But inexperienced yet spunky Ada refused to fold, outscoring the Wildcats 21-13 over the final 25 minutes.

The Bulldogs fell to 1-5 and 0-3 in the NWC with the defeat. 

Jefferson improved to 3-3 and 1-2 in league play with the win.

"We are young and made a lot of mistakes," said first-year Ada head coach Toby Smith. "We are getting better, but we have to quit giving up huge plays."
