Eagles stun No. 1 LCC

September 8, 2012

CULVER — Culver Military Academy snapped Class A No. 1 Lafayette Central Catholic’s 48-game football winning streak with a 14-12 victory at Oliver Field Friday.
“Our boys showed tremendous resiliency and resolve tonight. We had our backs against the wall again, but our defense rose to the challenge,” CMA head coach Andy Dorrel said. “I’m just very proud of our coaching staff and our kids, and the opportunity to win a game like this is very special in high school football.”

The third-year senior signal caller returned from a three-game suspension Friday, and he ran Plymouth’s offense like a player with something to prove, rattling off three rushing touchdowns and a two-point conversion en route to a game-high 220 rushing yards and guiding the Rockies to a 34-0 Northern Lakes Conference rout of the Raiders on the road at Northridge.

Lions ‘content’ with win at Triton

September 8, 2012

BOURBON — Bremen football head coach Bob Holmes downgraded his victorious squad’s emotional response from “happy” to “content” Friday night.
Considering the Lions’ three turnovers inside the Triton 10 and a fourth just outside the Triton 20 as well as a fourth-quarter roughing-the-kicker penalty, “content” sounds just about right for the Lions’ 7-0 Northern State Conference win at Triton.
“We’re happy to get out of here with a win,” Holmes said. “We played a sloppy game, but we exited with a ‘W.’ I shouldn’t say we’re happy, we’re content.”
