PLYMOUTH â€” It was an evening that brought 50 years of Marshall County history and caring into the same room for a celebration, but while the evening may have finally come to an end, the caring â€” and the task ahead for United Way of Marshall County â€” has not.
â€śI have the distinction to provide closing remarks for this celebration,â€ť said Unit-ed Way Board President Rick Kreps, summing up Saturday eveningâ€™s festivities. â€śItâ€™s an honor to do so and a very simple task. Thatâ€™s because there is no closing.â€ť
He explained the need for the United Way is a continuous one.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Despite an even 7-7 shot margin, Plymouth fell 2-0 in a Northern Lakes Conference girls soccer match with Northridge at home at Kindt Field Saturday.
Northridgeâ€™s speed proved to be a difference-maker in the contest.
â€śWeâ€™re certainly not the quickest team. We rely on possession ball and we rely on the ability to make good runs and for players to check to the ball,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Joe Morris. â€śAgainst a team like this that does a good job of using their speed, weâ€™ve got to be smarter, and weâ€™ve got to play really, really precise soccer.â€ť
