PLYMOUTH â€” Thereâ€™s a commonly held belief among soccer cognoscenti that the most dangerous minutes in a game are those at the start of a contest, those that directly follow a goal and those that immediately precede halftime.
That certainly proved to be the case in Plymouthâ€™s girls soccer game with Goshen Thursday.
CULVER â€”Â Culver Girls Academy used a quick start to its advantage as the Lady Eagles were able to hold on and complete a 3-0 shutout of the Argos Lady Dragons in Culver Thursday.
In the fourth minute of the game, the ball got through the Argos defense, and Kennedy Kubica of CGA was able to get there first and put it in the back of the net, giving CGA the early 1-0 lead.
As Week 4 football games commence tonight, LaVille and Triton are both trying to recover from tough losses last week, while John Glenn seems newly energized after its first win of the season against Knox last Friday. All three are gearing up for border wars with neighboring Northern State Conference schools as LaVille returns home to face Glenn, and Triton travels to Bremen.
