Plainfield South erased any doubt of a potential trap game, finding the end zone early and often against Plainfield Central as the Cougars scored a touchdown in all three areas (offense, defense and special teams) in the first half. Plainfield South (5-2, 4-1) led 14-0 after one quarter and 35-0 at the half.
With the Wildcats pinned inside their own 5-yard line, Cougars senior running back Joshua Harris blocked a punt by Central’s Keagan Latarewicz and recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown to extend the South lead to 21-0 with 8:47 left in the first half.
In addition to his blocked punt and recovery for a score, Harris had 18 carries for 167 yards and a touchdown.
BY THE NUMBERS
South outgained Central (0-7, 0-5) in total offense 411-269 yards. The Cougars defense forced only one turnover, but made it count as senior defensive back Chase Steininger’s scoop and score from three yards out gave South an early 7-0 lead. Senior running back Dominic Rios-Sterr led the Wildcats with 21 rushes for 111 yards and a touchdown and also caught five passes for 56 yards and a score.
“Anytime that our defense comes up with a score and special teams can come up with a score from the blocked punt it really gives our team a lift.” — Plainfield South coach Ken Bublitz
