ELKHART â€”Â Due to a blown transformer at Charger Field, tonightâ€™s Plymouth football game at Elkhart Memorial has been postponed until Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
The transformer in question was struck by lightning, cutting power to all of Memorialâ€™s outdoor events, and parts to repair the transformer were unavailable until noon today, said school officials. If the transformer canâ€™t be repaired today, then tomorrow nightâ€™s contest will be held at Rice Field at Elkhart Central at 7:30 p.m.
With the recent rains and forecasts calling for more of it today, tonightâ€™s area football games could be sloppy affairs.
CMA, Bremen and John Glenn are all looking to carry their winning momentum over to tonightâ€™s contests with Brebeuf Jesuit, Culver Community and Triton, while Culver, LaVille and Triton look to get back on the winning track with home games versus Bremen, Glenn and Knox.
Minimizing the turnovers and capitalizing on the other teamsâ€™ mistakes look to be key in what are likely to be poor field conditions.
CULVER MILITARY (3-1) vs. BREBEUF JESUIT (3-1)
ARGOS â€”Â Argos beat Elkhart Christian Academy 5-0 in a Northern Indiana Soccer Conference match-up at home at Eugene Snyder Field Thursday.
Mariah Lineberry scored on a pass from Courtney Dunlap for what would be the game-winner just four minutes in. Dunlap later scored on a pass from Katie Williams, and she returned the favor on a Williams goal to make it 3-0 at the break.
PLYMOUTH â€” After a win over Northridge Friday, Plymouth head coach John Barron feels pretty good about his teamâ€™s progress, right?
â€śYes and no,â€ť said Barron. â€śThe area we really felt we needed to work on we probably took a step sideways. We still have to get inside defenders off. A lot of that had to do with Northridge on Friday, but some of it had to do with us. We have to take some of that pressure off (fullback Michael) Hartman and get the ball inside.
Howdeshell heroics lift Triton to key NSC win
Dean Howdeshell rallied back from a 4-0 deficit in the third set to trump Jimtownâ€™s Mikey Pawlak 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(1) at 1 singles, and the Triton boys tennis team earned a critical Northern State Conference win on the road in Elkhart, 3-2, Wednesday.
Tritonâ€™s Lucas Shafer and Darrin Harrell put away Tritonâ€™s first match point with a victory over Jimtown 1 doubles tandem Ben Janowski and Adam DeShone in straight 6-4 sets.
