WAYNESBORO, Pa. — After the first 19 seconds of the football game, it was all Waynesboro on Friday night.

Johnnie Adgers rushed for 194 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Indians to a 48-20 victory over James Buchanan in the Mid-Penn Colonial Division opener for both teams.

Shamar Pates returned the opening kickoff of the game 94 yards for a touchdown to give the Rockets (0-4, 0-1) a quick 6-0 advantage.

Waynesboro (2-2, 1-0) took the lead for good with 26 seconds left in the first quarter. Connor Fetterhoff scored on a 5-yard run and Jesse Smith followed with his first of six extra-point kicks on the night to make it 7-6 Indians.

In the second quarter, Waynesboro took control. Ryan Heinrich returned an interception 23 yards for a score, and touchdown runs of 29 and 6 yards by Adgers put the Indians up 27-6 at halftime.

Adgers scored again early in the third on a 2-yard run as the Indians took a 34-6 lead.

But the Rockets kept things interesting, at least for a little while. JB quarterback Caleb Martin scored on a 1-yard run with 4:29 left in the third and then ran for the two-point conversion to cut the deficit to 34-14. Four minutes later, Martin connected with Darian Hose for 16-yard TD pass to make it 34-20.

Waynesboro quickly regained the momentum. After a 60-yard run by Adgers, Aaron Conrad scored on 3-yard quarterback keeper as the Indians went into the final quarter with a 41-20 lead.

Waynesboro scored the final touchdown of the game with 8:03 left on a 24-yard pass from Fetterhoff to Galen McDonald.

Fetterhoff finished 1 of 3 passing, while Conrad was 7 of 14 for 93 yards.

For JB, Martin was 3 of 14 passing for 48 yards with five interceptions. Hunter Brown ran for a team-high 32 yards on 10 carries for the Rockets.

Austin Hanshew, Nick Roefaro, Nathan Eisenhauer and Ben Petrie each had an interception for Waynesboro.
