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.
