NAPPANEE â€” Plymouth and NorthWood entered Fridayâ€™s softball game in Nappanee both looking for their first win in conference play this season.

PLYMOUTH â€”Â The Plymouth bats found a way to win at the end and benefited from a good pitching performance by Jordan Scheetz once again in a 5-4 victory over the visiting NorthWood Panthers Friday night.
Scheetz rebounded from a shaky start to retire 16 straight Panthers in the victory, and the Pilgrims plated two runs in the bottom of the seventh to rally past their Northern Lakes Conference foes.
