“If we could award half-touchdowns, Mayberry would get one for sure,” Woodard said with a smile. “I think that play epitomizes what is so great about football. Some guy who’s not going to get to score and he’s blocking his tail off for his buddy that goes in and scores.
“Then to have the sideline not go congratulate the guy who scored, but freak out for the kid that blocked for it. That stuff is priceless.”
Greenwood opened up the second half with a 7-play, 65-yard drive that resulted in a John Gallman 34-yard TD. It would be the only time the Woodmen found the end zone.
Plainfield responded with a 49-yard rushing TD from Jacob Maple with 1:43 left in the third quarter and that ended the scoring.
Miller finished with seven carries for 103 yards while Maple ran for 147 yards on 16 carries. Nichols threw for 121 yards and while Patton had two catches for 71 yards.
Plainfield now sits 4-1 on the year, its best start since 2010.
