WALKERTON â€” It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
For the second straight week, John Glennâ€™s defense put up a goose egg, and for the second straight week LaVilleâ€™s offense laid one.
Glenn held LaVille to a net total of -4 yards rushing and just 14 total offensive yards, while the Falcons scored on all but their last possession of the first half.
BOURBON â€” There is an old coachâ€™s adage in football that goes, â€śThey canâ€™t score if they donâ€™t have the ball.â€ť
Bremenâ€™s Lions demonstrated that truism to perfection at Triton on Friday night on their way to a 40-6 win over the Trojans.
Time of possession not withstanding, the Lions ran 68 offensive plays to Tritonâ€™s 29. The Trojans had only one second quarter possession of just five plays. The game was a masterful performance of keep away, by a very solid Bremen offense.
MIDDLEBURY â€” Northridge bottled up Plymouth running back Brock Smith all night.
Smith, though, found another way to leave his mark.
With the Rockies clinging to a tenuous one-point lead and 2:28 left in regulation, the senior standout blocked the potential game-tying extra point to preserve Class 4A No. 5 Plymouthâ€™s 14-13 Northern Lakes Conference football win at Northridge Friday.
â€ś(Smith) just made a play,â€ť Plymouth head coach John Barron said. â€śThe guys opened it up for him; he had a clean look and got a block. I canâ€™t take any credit for it. That was the will of a senior not to lose.
