Plainfield kept its perfect record league record intact, defeating Rockford 20-5 at the Illinois Girls High School State Championship. The victory marks the Thundercats’ fourth consecutive state title.
Plainfield did not dominate the entire match. As the Thundercats weathered a yellow card issued to fullback Alishia Jordan for 10 minutes, the first half ended up scoreless.
The Illinois state girls high school final is set. Reigning champion Plainfield is poised to defend its state title; however, Rockford has proved a worthy opponent and will be vying for the 2015 trophy.
