Adams then capped his scoring binge with a 55-yard run midway through the second quarter for a 41-7 Greenwood lead.
Adams finished with 175 yards on only six carries. Noah Pillow added 89 yards and a 76-yard touchdown run, plus a game-opening 89-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Triston Adams added 42 yards and a score for the Gators.
Greenwood outgained Barren County 376-104, and all of the Gators’ yards came on the ground.
