Newman ends Fieldcrest's ride early
Fieldcrest earned its first playoff appearance since 2008, going 8-1 as the Heart of Illinois Conference runner-up. The Knights playoff party, however did not last long, falling to four-time state champ Sterling Newman 41-0 Saturday in Minonk.
Newman racked up 257 yards on 48 carries, and its defense held Fieldcrest to 36 yards, 18 of them rushing and 18 of them passing.
“Our defense dug their feet in the trenches and held their ground for awhile,” Fieldcrest coach Nate Lorton told Shaw Media Service. “But we just spent too much time on the field as a defense. It wore our guys out, and that’s what the playoffs are about.”
