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.
