PLYMOUTH â€” Argosâ€™ roster is sprinkled with seasoned scorers. The Rockies have struggled to find the finishing touch this year.
The combination added up to an 8-1 rout by the Dragons at Kindt Field Wednesday.
â€śOur offensive production with these guys really bloomed last year in the tournament, which enabled us to make the run that we made,â€ť said Argos head coach Todd VanDerWeele.
â€śI thought this was probably the best game weâ€™ve played this year. They moved the ball well. I told the guys just to bring tons of pressure and we did when we had the ball and when we were defending.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s Rockies will hope to get well in a hurry with a long bus ride to Middlebury on Friday night to take on the Northridge Raiders in a Northern Lakes Conference game.
Traditionally Plymouth (1-2) has struggled on the Raiders home field. While Northridge comes into the contest at 0-3, among those three is perennial power East Noble and last weekâ€™s overtime loss to Wawasee who many thought would be one of the NLCâ€™s stronger teams.
Plymouth blanks Bremen

Plymouth moves to 7-2 on the year and resumes Northern Lakes Conference play at Concord tonight.

ARGOS â€” A pile of trash caught on fire at County Line Landfill Tuesday around 6 p.m., but was put out quickly according to Ryan Murphy, assistant fire chief at the Rochester Fire Department.
"Some trash on the hill caught on fire," said Murphy Wednesday, adding, "The cause of fire was never really determined â€” it could have been a hot load of ash or a cigarette."
Employees of the landfill noticed the fire, and called 911. Murphy said that firefighters were only on the scene for about 40 minutes.
After losing 18 players to graduation last year, Bremenâ€™s young squad was already facing a learning curve at the start of the season. With injuries to key players in Weeks 2 and 3, the Lions have been forced to make even more adjustments on the fly.
Plymouth puts away Clay

Shook served up four aces, Haley Harrell dished out 21 assists, and Carly Baker tallied five blocks for Plymouth, which moved to 6-5 on the season.
The JV and freshmen Lady Pilgrims also earned wins Tuesday.

CULVER â€“ You may remember when â€śpositive thinkingâ€ť was the byword of the day. Advocates such as Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking, recommended surrounding yourself with positive affirmations to counteract the negative influences of life. This reporter was not above looking in the bathroom mirror and repeating the mantra â€śI am the best I can be. Today will be the best day of my life.â€ť
