WALKERTON â€” Happy Homecoming, John Glenn.
After a nip-tuck first half, the Falcons took over the momentum just seconds before halftime and positively dominated the second half, beating Class A No. 9 Culver by a safe 35-14 margin. Meanwhile down the road, Bremen gave Glenn a little help in its hopes to claim its first Northern State Conference title in nearly 30 years with a 25-14 win over visiting Jimtown to bring the Falcons even with the Jimmies at 6-1 in the NSC standings.
BOURBON â€”Â Knox linebacker Jordan Beemâ€™s 50-yard interception return with 5.4 seconds left in the game at Triton somehow felt appropriate.
Not that Beemâ€™s touchdown-scoring tightrope walk down the sideline affected the outcome in any way, but it certainly placed an exclamation mark on the Redskinsâ€™ superlative defensive effort.
Knox forced six turnovers â€”Â three picks and three fumble recoveries â€”Â piled up six tackles for a loss, and held the Trojans to 157 yards of total offense in a 27-0 Northern State Conference football win Friday.
GOSHEN â€” After two losses, the Plymouth Rockies dominated Goshen on the road Friday night.
The Rockies outrushed the Redskins 330-193 yards, Houston Hodges got involved in the running game and threw two touchdown passes, and Plymouth used a big second quarter to catapult to a 41-20 Northern Lakes Conference win.
It was the largest margin of defeat for Goshen so far this year.
BREMEN â€” Headed into their game against Class 3A No. 2 Jimtown, the Lions were considered the easy underdogs.
But Bremen pulled off the impossible Friday, snapping a 29-game Northern State Conference win streak stretching back to 2006 with a convincing 25-14 victory over the Jimmies in front of a home crowd at Don Bunge Field.
â€śFirst and foremost I think it was a tremendous win for our kids and our community and everybody else,â€ť said Bremen head football coach Bob Holmes. â€śThis is a great community, and theyâ€™ve backed us the entire season. Itâ€™s just a great win for a great community.â€ť
