CULVER â€” There are no do-overs in life. Fortunately, however, thatâ€™s not the case on the soccer pitch.
On a three-game skid after losing star center mid Heather Martin to injury several weeks ago, Bremen used Thursdayâ€™s Northern State Conference contest at Culver as an opportunity to regroup. The Lady Lions got the job done as senior Jenna Pfeiffer scored the go-ahead on a penalty kick in the 35th minute, and Bremen made it stand up through the second half to snap its losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the host Cavaliers.
PLYMOUTH â€” Kyle Barryâ€™s near game-tying shot went just wide in the final seconds, and Plymouth suffered a 3-2 Northern Lakes Conference loss to visiting Elkhart Memorial Thursday.
ARGOS â€”Â Steffany Parrish led Argos in her third game back, and the Argos girls soccer team ran its record to 8-4 on the year with a 6-0 rout of Westville.
Parrish, playing her third game back from an injury, scored twice and had an assist, while Carly McCay opened the scoring in the fourth minute, Jami Patterson notched her 16th tally of the year, and Sammie Hopkins scored her eighth goal. Keri Bair finished out the scoring for the Dragons.
DONALDSON â€” Ancilla College freshman striker JaCoby Smith has been named the NJCAA Division 1 Menâ€™s Soccer Player of the Week for the week of September 5 through September 11.
Smith posted six goals and two assists in two matches at the Lakeland Community College Invitational this past weekend, leading Ancilla to a 6-0 victory over host Lakeland and an 8-0 victory over Cuyahoga Community College.

Plymouth extended the match to four games but couldnâ€™t stop Warsaw in a 25-18, 18-25, 25-14, 25-18 Northern Lakes Conference loss on the road Thursday.
Plymouth was led on the attack by Marissa Germanâ€™s 12 kills to go with a block, while Haley Harrell led the team in setting and passing with 23 assists and four digs in addition to an ace.
Debate arose last week over whether to convert part of the 1880s-era railroad waiting station turned picnic pavilion at the town park into public restrooms, at the monthly meeting of the Culver Parks and Recreation board. Discussion ensued last Wednesday evening after park director Kelly Young outlined hoped-for projects in the coming months and year for the park following finalization of its budget in October or November.
PLYMOUTH â€” Marci Crozier, Biggest Loser season 11 contestant, will be the keynote speaker at the LifePlex community health fair Sept. 21. She will be speaking on womenâ€™s health and sharing some of her experiences from the show beginning at 6 p.m.
Crozier is only one of the many speakers scheduled for the day, which begins at 7 a.m. and goes until 7 p.m. The free community event is designed to get residents interested in pursuing a more fit lifestyle.
With computers in front of them, students can look up assignments, use endless resources online, or download an application to help with what they are doing. Albert Hanselman, Culver Community High School principal, said that one task students use their iPads for in the classroom is taking notes on a teacherâ€™s PowerPoint presentation electronically. Some textbooks are online, so students use their devices to read their book in class. Hanselman said that students can also download resources such as a dictionary or calculator free of charge.
The young Rockies have developed a taste for success.
Three straight wins have only made Plymouth (3-1, 2-0 NLC) hungrier for more as it hits the road for Elkhart Memorial (2-2, 1-2 NLC) Friday.
