BERNE — South Adams took advantage of some breaks on its final drive, but made some big plays, including a 33-yard touchdown pass and a two-point conversion, then Isaiah Amtstutz snuffed out the Jets' final effort with an interception in the end zone as the host Starfires stunned Adams Central 14-13 in the semi-final round of Sectional 43 action Friday night.
The win avenged an earlier 32-22 loss to the Jets, and puts the 4-7 Starfires in the sectional title game this Friday at Southwood, a 42-22 winner over Southern Wells.
