Any job is easy when you have the right tool in the box. On Friday, the Waynesboro football team had an Adgers and it made the Indians craftsmen. Running back Johnnie Adgers rushed 37 times for 218 yards and a touchdown while the Indians' defense pounded in the loose nails for a 9-0 win over New Oxford. It's Waynesboro's first win this season and a nice way to go into the Mid-Penn conference schedule starting next week. Adgers scored from the 5 on Waynesboro's first drive of the second half to break a scoreless tie. It was a big relief after the Indians failed to capitalize on great field position in the first half.
