LAMAR, Mo — Lamar claimed the Class 2 District 5 Championship with a 35-18 victory over Adrian!

Just before halftime with only seconds on the clock, Wilkerson launched a deep pass downfield to Chase Querry who was into the endzone to extend Lamar’s lead to 14-6 at halftime.

Trialing 18-14 heading into the fourth quarter, the Tigers scored 21 points in the fourth to secure the victory.

They will now advance to the Class 2 State Quarterfinals where they will host Lafayette County (12-0) next Saturday at 1:00 at Thomas M. O’Sullivan Stadium.
