Plant made quick work of depleted Bloomingdale to wrap up its Class 8A-District 6 schedule with an undefeated record.
Leading 15-0 after the first quarter, Plant scored 31 more points in the second quarter to put the game away. Plant’s second-quarter scores included an interception returned 32 yards for a touchdown by Mitchell Wright, a punt returned 40 yards for a touchdown by Dereck Mann, a 17-yard rushing touchdown by Wesley Bullock, and a 47-yard field goal by Grant Van Aman.
After a tough loss last week to Armwood, Plant coach Robert Weiner was pleased with his team’s effort.
“We came out with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. … Monday was the best day of practice we have had all season long,” Weiner said. Bullock finished with 98 yards rushing and two touchdowns on six carries in the first half before giving way to the backups in the second half. Amad Posateri had a 54-yard TD run for Bloomingdale. The Bulls were missing multiple starters on defense due to injuries or suspensions for violating team rules.
