Salt Fork 30, Arcola 0
SIDELL — For the second time in as many days, Salt Fork still couldn’t avoid the lightning storms that marched through Eastern Illinois.
After building a 23-0 halftme lead, the Salt Fork Storm had its season-opening contest with the Arcola Purple Riders postponed to Saturday afternoon. Once again, the two teams had their game halted by another thunderstorm but after a lengthy delay, the game was called and the Storm had a 30-0 victory.
“It isn’t the ideal situation, but it just wasn’t safe out there for players, coaches, officials or fans,’’ Salt Fork coach Brian Plotner said. “We were doing everything we could to get a complete game into the books, but in the end, we had to settle for a game that made it almost three full quarters.’’
While Plotner was pleased with how his team played in the first half on Friday, he also saw something on Saturday that was extremely positive.
“After both teams went 3-and-out in their first possessions of the second half, we put together a nice 6-minute drive,’’ said Plotner as quarterback Jacob Hughes capped the only scoring drive of the second half with a 1-yard plunge. “I think we finally got into a groove on offense. Hopefully, that is a sign of things to come for us.’’
