PLYMOUTH â€” The outcome was different, but it didnâ€™t get any easier for Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims as they ended a doubleheader weekend with a home win over LaPorte by a final of 51-48 Saturday.
It was a much-needed tonic for a weary team after an NLC slugfest at Concord the night before, but the effects of the tough loss the night before were evident early as the Pilgrims were sluggish on both ends of the floor. Early foul trouble for guard David Lee turned up an unlikely hero in the first half.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s top five has been playing pretty well the past few weeks. When one of the Lady Pilgrims reserves steps up, it makes them downright tough to stop.
Sixth man sophomore Kaydon Fosler gave her team a spark with eight straight points at the front end of an 18-7 second frame, and the Lady Pilgrims cruised to an eventual 56-36 Northern Lakes Conference win over visiting Concord Saturday afternoon.
SOUTH BEND â€” With potential conference titles on the line next weekend for wrestling teams from both John Glenn and Plymouth, you would expect to see the Falcons and Rockies at their best, all the time, during a big tournament like Saturdayâ€™s Northern Indiana Conference super dual.
Yeah. You would expect.
â€śWe did wrestle hard most of the day. The problem is, we need to wrestle hard all of the day,â€ť grumbled Plymouth coach Bob Read following his teamâ€™s 3-2 finish in the 12-team mat carnival at South Bend Washington.
Ditto, Glenn coach Tim White.
CGA resumes play with win
The Lady Eagles hit the court running after nearly month-long holiday layover, and Culver Girls Academy claimed a 71-13 rout of visiting Lakeland Christian Saturday.
Andrijana Cvitkovic and Victoria Christlieb scored 23 and 22 points, respectively, for CGA, and Cvitkovic finished with 15 rebounds and five assists. Alle Baker also finished in double figures with 10 points in the win, which pushes the team to 8-5 on the season.

DUNLAP â€” It was not a thing of beauty, but Concordâ€™s Minutemen will take the win as they come away with an NLC home overtime victory over Plymouth by a final of 50-42.
It was a battle of big-time college recruits with Concordâ€™s Franko House â€” headed for Ball State University â€” squaring off against Plymouthâ€™s Mack Mercer, and statistically the match favored House, who had 17 points and 10 rebounds. However House was matched up most of the night with one Plymouth defender â€”Kyser McCrammer â€” while Mercer spent much of the night triple-teamed by various Concord defenders.
BOURBON â€” The Lady Trojans started off Homecoming night with a big 52-37 win over Northern State Conference foe Culver Community, but the Cavaliers earned the split with a nip-tuck 46-42 boys win over the host Trojans in an NSC doubleheader at the Trojan Trench Friday night.
