RAINSVILLE – Piedmont faced enough of a challenge, replacing nine starters on offense and six on defense. Facing reigning Class 4A runner-up Cherokee County and Class 3A, No. 8 Sylvania in the first two games didn’t help, either.

Piedmont improved to 1-2, 1-1 region.
Dontavious Jordan rushed for 155 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown run at 2:53 of the first quarter.
Quarterback Cole Wilson completed eight of 13 passes for 93 yards, with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Rollie Pinto.
Pinto also scored on a 40-yard run, and Caiden Cardelli kicked a 31-yard field goal.
Piedmont outrushed Plainview 268 yards to 160 and outgained Plainview 361-214 overall. The Bulldogs also had no turnovers.
Piedmont hosts Ohatchee on Friday. Plainview is at Glencoe.
