MIDDLEBURY â Effort was in abundance, but Plymouth was one defensive stop short in dropping an overtime road game to Northridge 51-49.
âI think we played hard, but I donât know what it is â lack of listening, lack of execution at key times,â said Plymouth head coach Ryan Bales. âLetâs face it â we gave up dribble penetration at key stretches. We get a chance to stop them and we couldnât get the lead down the stretch there. We were there. One possession game.â
LAKEVILLE âÂ LaVilleâs Andrew Hostetler reached a personal milestone early in the first quarter and just kept piling on the points.
With the first of his five 3-pointers Friday, the 5-foot-11 senior guard scaled the 1,000-career-points plateau and set the stage for the Lancersâ 46-33 Northern State Conference boys basketball victory over visiting Culver Community at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
WALKERTON âÂ Any game after a big emotional win always carries the risk of a letdown.
John Glennâs thrilling down-to-the-wire Bi-County championship win over LaVille last Saturday certainly qualified as a big, emotional win, but the Falcons quickly dispelled any fears of a letdown in their Northern State Conference match-up with Knox Friday.

PLYMOUTH â A shake up in the Plymouth Police Department was announced late Friday afternoon as Mayor Mark Senter has tabbed Dave Bacon to be the next Chief of Police.
Bacon takes over for Jim Cox, who will remain with the department as a Detective Sergeant.
Cox is a 24-year veteran of the department. He was retained by Senter as chief when the mayor first took office five years ago.
Senter cited some leadership skills in Bacon that led to the move.
Bacon has spent the last nine years on PPD as the assistant chief.
PLYMOUTH - As bone chilling temperatures make their way across the area again this week, many will recall a similar chill 35 years ago.
While there have been others since, the âBlizzard of â78â - that lasted from the evening of Jan. 25 until Jan. 27 - still lives as the worst snow storm on record for the state of Indiana.
