Plymouth knocks off visiting Lions in 3 games

September 23, 2010

PLYMOUTH — If you blinked you probably missed a good chunk of Plymouth’s volleyball match against visiting Bremen Wednesday.
Boosted by a lightning-fast start, the Pilgrims needed just 53 minutes to dispatch Bremen 25-4, 25-12, 25-18 in an intra-county squabble at The Rock.
Plymouth packed a powerful punch at the net and blanketed its half of the court while breezing through the first two games.

Pilgrims keeping it light for regional

September 23, 2010

KENDALLVILLE — Jack Kinney knows his team’s odds at the East Noble regional are a long shot.
With the kinds of teams populating the field at Cobblestone Saturday — including Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association top 20-rated East Noble and DeKalb as well as undefeated Northern Lakes Conference and Warsaw Sectional champ Wawasee — grabbing one of the top three team standings to qualify for the state meet is going to be an uphill climb. So the Lady Pilgrims aren’t sweating it. They’re keeping things breezy and come tourney time, they’ll see if they can shake things up.

Area football teams enter second half of season

September 23, 2010

LAKEVILLE — As the second half of the season gets under way Friday, area teams are looking to pick up some steam heading into postseason play.
The Bremen Lions (3-4, 1-2 NSC) have taken some lumps this season, including last Friday’s disappointing 23-20 Homecoming loss to Northern State Conference foe Culver. That’s left them on the wrong side of .500, and they’re hoping to get back to winning form at LaVille this week.
“We honestly feel we’re probably six or seven plays away from being 4-1, and that’s a tough spot to be at 2-3,” said Bremen head coach Bob Holmes.
