PLYMOUTH â€” While there may be light at the end of the tunnel, it was still far from Blueberry Festive at Plymouth on Friday night as the Rockies (1-2) dropped their second straight game at home and their first Northern Lakes Conference game of the season to rival Warsaw, 26-7.
Plymouth dug a hole in the gameâ€™s first half and could never quite recover in spite of the return of several starters to the lineup in the second half and the emergence of some new players that could be key as the season progresses.
BOURBON â€”Â After a pair of season-opening losses, Culver Communityâ€™s football team needed to make something good happen Friday at Triton.
Between Bradley Beaver, Tucker Schultz, Preston Hansel, Collin Stevens, and a strong supporting cast, the Cavs broke out the good stuff.
Culver put points on the board in each of its first five possessions of the game and withstood a second-half Triton charge en route to a 37-19 Northern State Conference victory.
LAKEVILLE â€” For two quarters, little LaVille gave Class 3A No. 2 powerhouse Jimtown a run for its money.
But the Jimmies found another gear as the numbers game gradually began to wear the undersized Lancers squad down in the second half, and LaVille fell 34-0 to visiting Jimtown in the home teamâ€™s Northern State Conference opener at Lancer Field Friday.
KNOX â€” A sleeping giant woke up Friday night.
After two straight games where its offense sputtered and stalled, John Glennâ€™s running game finally showed up in a 32-18 romp over Knox.
Derek Hiler rushed for 133 yards and a touchdown, Adam Dodson had 56 yards and two touchdowns, and Zach Combes scored a touchdown while gaining 96 yards of his own to lift the Falcons to their first victory of the high school football season.
Lions lose 2nd straight in NSC opener at New Prairie
Defending Northern State Conference champion Bremen gave up 34 points in the second half â€” including three scores in the third quarter â€” and the Lions lost their NSC opener at New Prairie Friday night, 41-14.
The Cougars chewed up 318 rushing yards to 122 by Bremen, which gained most of its yards in the air as the Lions registered a 14-31-1 passing clip for 215 yards at the game, including touchdown passes of 12 and 34 yards from Kai Slough to Ethan Pike and Eric Knepper, respectively.
