Tigers' one-two punch knocks out Plainfield

For the third consecutive season the Lebanon Tigers have advanced through the first round on sectional action. However, Friday night’s 35-24 victory over the Plainfield Quakers was a big statement win for a team that seemed to be stumbling down the stretch after dropping two if its final three regular season games. Though the Quakers came in with a sub .500 record, their strength of schedule had them well prepped for a tough sectional. “It was just a great effort by our kids tonight,” said Lebanon head coach Kent Wright. “It was a total team effort.” Despite their record, Plainfield came equipped with a high powered offense that averaged over 34 points a game and they were eager to put it on display early as senior quarterback Brady Nichols threw for over 200 yards including 35-yard seam pass on the game’s opening play. Three plays later Jacob Maple picked his way over the right side of his line from three yards out to give Plainfield a 7-0 lead just two minutes into the game. Not to be out done, and clearly a man on a mission, was Lebanon’s senior quarterback Isaac Harker. Though a completely different style than Nichols, he answered the opening body blow with one of his own as he engineered a 9-play, 74-yard drive in which he ran for 58 yards, including the 38-yard touchdown off the fake to Jamason Wright. After the fake, Harker took the keeper straight up the gut through a huge hole opened up by his offensive line and scampered nearly untouched for the score.
