Plainfield rumbles to 4-1 start

PLAINFIELD — Josh Miller stole the show with an impressive first quarter for Plainfield Friday night against Mid-State Conference rival Greenwood, as the senior had two rushing touchdowns and another on an interception return, to push the Quakers to a 21-point advantage.

Plainfield never let up and rode a 28-point lead at the half to a 35-7 Homecoming win over the visiting Woodmen.

Plainfield coach Brian Woodard was impressed by his squad’s performance and teamwork, especially in the rain-soaked conditions.

“Greenwood is a good football team and had our number the past two seasons,” Woodard said. “It felt to get a win, whoever it was. I don’t care if it was the Sisters of the Poor, we wanted to get a win and it was rewarding for our kids.”

Miller scored on Plainfield’s second drive with a 51-yard run up the middle. Three plays later, Miller picked off Greenwood quarterback Tanner Skeel, and raced 45 yards for the TD. He then rumbled 45 yards up the middle and crossed the goal line with five seconds left in the period to complete the first-quarter hat trick.

“It felt pretty good to give my team a head start,” Miller said. “I was surprised (Skeel) threw the pass on the interception and I thought ‘Well, I’m going to take it then.’”

On Greenwood’s ensuing drive, the Woodmen found some momentum and drove to Plainfield’s 7-yard line. The Quakers’ defense held Greenwood out of the end zone on four straight downs and tallied three fourth-down stops in the contest.

Plainfield quarterback Brady Nichols took advantage and hit Garrett Patton for a 69-yard TD pass. Patton took the ball on a crossing pattern and picked up a crucial block from teammate James Mayberry downfield as he raced in for the score with 5:51 left in the half.
