FAIRBURY – Pontiac put a damper on Prairie Central’s homecoming game Friday night by defeating the Hawks 36-30 in front of a big crowd at Lewis Field.
The Indians move to 4-0 on the season and P.C. suffered its first loss moving to 3-1. Pontiac’s win could put them on track to a playoff berth or even a possible Illini Prairie Conference championship in a matter of weeks.
Pontiac quarterback Ben Schuler had a big night with a couple of big plays down the stretch. For Prairie Central, Steidinger and Palmore each had a big night.
“Pontiac had just enough defensive stops to come away with a road victory,” said CIFN Sports Central announcer Eric Stock who called the game action on Facebook.
