THE SKINNY

Plainfield East (6-2, 4-2) and coach Mike Romeli celebrated the first football playoff appearance for the Bengals in the program’s five-year history. Plainfield East scored a touchdown in all three phases, highlighted by the Bengals defense scoring twice and Brandon Rivera’s 70-yard punt return for a touchdown. Plainfield East led 36-7 at the half.

TURNING POINT

Plainfield East scored 14 points in a 16-second span. Leading 7-0, East quarterback Cole Kotopka (8-of-16, 277 yards, 3 TDs) connected with wideout Jeremy Dutton on a 71-yard touchdown to extend the Bengals lead to 14-0 with 9:43 left in the first half. Central fumbled on the next play and Bengals linebacker William Moore returned it 35 yards for a touchdown and a 21-0 lead.

THE STARS

In addition to the Plainfield East defense that scored twice on Central turnovers, wideout Shederick Majors had four catches for 196 yards and two TDs.

BY THE NUMBERS

Plainfield Central (0-8, 0-6) outgained East in total offense 398-299, however, most of the Wildcats’ yards came in the second half with the game mostly decided. Central senior running back Dominic Rios-Sterr led the Wildcats with 190 all-purpose yards (120 rushing and 70 receiving) and a TD.

QUOTABLE

“It’s very exciting for us and it’s been a great year for us. We deserve this after some tough years and after a tough start with starting a program.” — Romeli
