    MONROE—Two potential scoring plays, about 16 hours apart, turned out to be the difference between victory and defeat in Adams Central's and Garrett's weather-elongated Homecoming game on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Garrett came out the winner, 21-12.
    The visiting Railroaders won Day One, 21-0, and AC won Day Two, 12-0, but two missed scores by the Flying Jets were crucial: one on Friday just before the game was postponed due to lightning and the other on Saturday:
