PLYMOUTH â While one team feels pretty good about week one, the other comes away a little less positive in a Plymouth 34-13 win over Bremen.
âIâm proud of our kids they played hard,â said Plymouth head coach John Barron. âBremen is a really good football team. Theyâve got a lot of experience; they are going to beat a lot of people. This has become a rivalry only because (Bremen) Coach (Bob) Holmes has done a great job with a great program.â
Holmes felt a little differently about his teamâs approach.
BOURBON âÂ The Triton Trojans began the Coach John Johns era the right way, claiming a 25-13 victory over the Caston Comets Friday night.
When asked how he felt after opening the season with his first win as the Trojansâ head coach, Coach Johns had this to say, âObviously itâs what we wanted. I am happy and ecstatic for the kids. They worked their tail off. I couldnât be happier.â
The game started out with neither team able to get much going.
CULVER â Time and again, the Culver defensive unit came up with big stops against West Central. But time and again, the Cavalier offense shot itself in the foot with turnovers.
Ball security proved to be Culverâs Achilles heel as the Cavs surrendered four turnovers off five fumbles in the teamâs opener with the Trojans, stymying any offensive rhythm and giving up scores off two of those TOs, nullifying a standout defensive effort in an 18-6 loss at home Friday night.
LAKEVILLE â LaVille football head coach Will Hostrawser worried about how his team would play with a second-half lead.
The Lancers allayed their first-year skipperâs fears and then some.
Clutching a 10-0 advantage heading into the final frame, LaVille erupted for three scores in quick succession en route to a 31-0 season-opening win over South Central at Lancer Field on Friday.
NORTH JUDSON â The way things started, Fridayâs game at North Judson looked like a good thing for John Glennâs football team.
But the way it ended, the Falcons found out they have a whole lot of work to do.
North Judson runningback Erik Beckman, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound bowling ball with legs, rolled through Glennâs defense for 227 yards and four touchdowns as the Bluejays rolled up a 25-7 victory.
After a solid first half, the Glenn offense sputtered and the defense sagged as the third quarter began, spoiling Dave Sharpeâs debut as the Falconsâ new head coach.
