A driving rainstorm drenched the artificial surface Friday at Plainfield High School, but visiting Whiteland showered the football field with swagger when it emerged from its locker room following a brief postgame meeting.
“October football!” Warriors coach Darrin Fisher and several players shouted as they exited. So far, so good in the month for Whiteland, which took advantage of four lost Plainfield fumbles and converted them into 19 points while cruising to a 39-14 Mid-State Conferecnce victory.
The win dropped the Quakers to 3-2 in conference play and 5-3 overall, while Whiteland improved to 5-3 overall and 3-2 in Mid-State play.
Whiteland’s win helped Greenwood clinch an outright conference championship, but the Warriors wasted little time talking about their impending matchup next Friday against the Woodmen, even though there won’t be a conference title on the line.
