THE SKINNY

After starting the season 0-2, Oswego picked up its fourth win in a row behind a stifling defense that held Plainfield East to just 39 total yards during a 20-0 Southwest Prairie decision.

TURNING POINT

Leading 7-0 at halftime, Oswego (4-2, 4-0) took the ball to start the third quarter and quarterback Steven Frank hooked up with wideout Trevor Matczak on a 45-yard pass play to the East 1-yard line. Tyler Walsh followed his blockers up the middle on the next play to make it a 14-0 lead.

THE STARS

Walsh carried the ball 23 times for 224 yards and two touchdowns for the Panthers, with Frank passing for 178 yards and rushing for the other score.

BY THE NUMBERS

The Oswego defense held the Bengals (4-2, 2-2) to minus-14 yards rushing. After allowing 69 points in their first two games, the Panthers have given up just 36 in the last four.

QUOTABLE

“We knew we had to stop the run in the box with the front seven and let the defensive backs to their job outside. Once we shut down the run everything fell into place.” — Oswego linebacker Sean Graff
