Martinsville blanks Plainfield, 42-0

The Plainfield Quakers ended the regular season on a sour note last night, falling 42-0 to Martinsville. After winning its first three games of the year, Plainfield (5-4) finished up with a 2-4 record, losing its last two of the season. The loss to the Artesians baffled Plainfield coach Brian Woodard, who thought the Quakers could put some points on the board against a porous Artesians defense.

“We need to find out what some of our issues were offensively,” he said. “This is a Martinsville team that had given up a lot of points over the course of the season. We obviously didn’t do something right tonight in terms of executing our schemes.”

Down 14-0 after the Artesians charged full steam ahead with its rushing attack, the Quakers fell behind and were forced to try and catch up.

“Early on, Martinsville was running a simple trap concept that we had no answer for and it was one long run after another,” Woodard said.

Plainfield had an opportunity to pull within seven of Martinsville and were in scoring position, but in what became a familiar theme throughout the night, the Quakers were their own worst enemy. Penalties set Plainfield into first and second-and long situations and the drive fizzled.

“I thought we had a chance to claw back into it and make it 14-7,” Woodard said. “Unfortunatley, because of penalties we put ourselves out of scoring position. That’s disappointing because that is something we can control.”

Woodard did like how the team fought back in the second period, something he has preached to the team all season.

“The greatest positives came in the second quarter,” he said. “To say we played well defensively is a stretch, but in terms of forcing some turnovers and getting the ball back to our offense, I thought we got going a little bit. Our defense gave us the spark that we needed.
