CULVER â It was all too familiar for Bremenâs boys soccer team.
After falling 2-1 in a penalty kick shootout to Argos at last yearâs Culver Boys Soccer Sectional championship, the Lions had been dreaming of a reprisal for a year.
With Saturdayâs rematch knotted in a 0-0 stalemate headed into the final minute, it looked like this yearâs sectional championship would go into extra time once more.
DeMOTTE â With under a minute remaining, Argos senior Jami Patterson took a ball from Charlie Horn, cut past two defenders at the 18 and hit a shot to her left. The ball careened off the post and into the goal to lift Argos to 2-1 over Boone Grove and clinch the Lady Dragons a repeat sectional title.
CULVER â Plymouth senior No. 1 Gabe Vervycnkt has found a little extra motivation in this yearâs state singles tournament.
While host Culver Military bowed out of team state tournament play with a 4-1 loss to Valparaiso at the Eaglesâ home semistate Saturday, Vervynckt handed North Judson exchange student Thomas Simon his only loss of the year 7-5, 7-5 to become the first regional qualifier for the Pilgrims in recent memory in the IHSAAâs 33rd annual singles tournament at the Gable Tennis Complex in Culver.
Lopez pushes Warsaw past CMA
Culver Military Academy played No. 2 Warsaw to a 1-1 tie in the first half, but the Eagles ultimately came up short against the defending regional champions, 3-1 in the Class 2A Plymouth Boys Soccer Sectional championship Saturday night at Kindt Field.
PLYMOUTH âÂ As swim season quickly approaches, a local committee is still hard at work trying to raise money for a new pool.
The pool at Plymouth High School was closed earlier this year due to age and disrepair, and the high school swim team is currently practicing at nearby Oregon-Davis High School. Leanne Senter, PHS swim coach, is part of the committee seeking to build a new pool. The goal is to fundraise for the entire cost.
âWe have decided to have a feasibility study professionally done, to give us some credibility,â said Senter.
PLYMOUTH â Those wishing to support the local breast cancer awareness group Ounce of Prevention need to make plans to be at Plymouth High Schoolâs varsity gym Tuesday night.
Not only will the Plymouth varsity volleyball team be donning all pink to show their support, but they are also playing some really good volleyball right now.
The match with Northern Lakes Conference foe Concord starts at 5:30 p.m. and the cost of admission for adults is $5.
When Fred Schmidt entered the West Lafayette, Indiana dental office Kingdon âKibâ Brady three years ago, it took three people to help him walk in the door. Afflicted by severe tremors in his arms, legs, and other muscles, Schmidt, retired from Eli Lilly in Indianapolis, had deteriorated steadily over the 14 years since heâd been diagnosed with Parkinsonâs.
GOSHEN â There is a history of the unexpected when Plymouthâs Rockies visit Foreman Field in Goshen and while the Rockies walked away with a convincing 28-16 Northern Lakes Conference win, it didnât come without a price.
WALKERTON â Deep inside, Derek Hiler must have the heart of a boxer. When he gets knocked down, he immediately gets back up.
After being stopped cold a week ago against New Prairie, where the Cougar = defense held him to just 13 yards rushing, Hiler bounced back in a big way Friday night.
The Falcon senior rushed for 159 yards and scored three touchdowns as Glenn trounced Culver Community, 35-6. Oh, and Hiler was named Glennâs Homecoming king, as well.
BOURBON â On a wet, soggy night, Knox came to Bourbon and handed the Triton Trojans their seventh loss of the season by a score of 28-7. Triton played better than the score would show, but fiveÂ turnovers kept them from keeping the score close.
According to Triton head coach Rodney Younis you canât expect anything but a loss with that many turnovers.
âBottom line is turnovers hurt us,â Younis said. âYou canât expect to win ball games when you turn it over as much as we did tonight.Â Our effort was good tonight, but itâs hard to win ball games when you turn it over as much as we did.â
