Oswego East, off to a 3-0 start for the first time in school history, was looking to move a step closer to the school’s first-ever playoff berth, while Plainfield South (2-1) faced a must-win game. South forced five turnovers and rolled to a 27-0 lead en route to notching a huge road win.
Plainfield South intercepted Oswego East quarterback Tyler Kennedy three times in the first quarter and took advantage with two touchdowns from Joshua Harris. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound senior had 173 of his career-high 262 yards before halftime while scoring four of his career-high five touchdowns.
Harris, of course, with a big assist from the South defense, which held the Wolves to just 73 yards rushing and went bend-but-not-break against Kennedy, who had 232 yards.
South owned a 449-307 advantage in total yards and outgained Oswego East 327-136 in the first half.
“We knew in our minds we had to come in here and play a sound, solid football game and execute in every phase.” — Plainfield South coach Ken Bublitz
