BOURBON â€”Â 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, â€śObviously itâ€™s what we wanted. I am happy and ecstatic for the kids. They worked their tail off. I couldnâ€™t be happier.â€ť
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 Culverâ€™s Achilles heel as the Cavs surrendered four turnovers off five fumbles in the teamâ€™s 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 skipperâ€™s 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, Fridayâ€™s game at North Judson looked like a good thing for John Glennâ€™s 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 Glennâ€™s 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 Sharpeâ€™s debut as the Falconsâ€™ new head coach.

PLYMOUTH â€” After a life-changing car accident last April, Argos girls soccer coach Jon Alcorn noticed Mariah Lineberry was struggling on the field.
The Lady Dragons coach decided to give her the start in their rivalry match at Plymouth Thursday in the hopes of restoring some of her former confidence, and his sophomore midfielder rewarded him with the game-winner.
Lineberry snuck a goal just inside the near post off a Kaitlyn Williams pass in the 43rd minute, and Argos hung on for a 3-2 victory over the Lady Rockies at Kindt Field Thursday night.
LAPAZ â€” LaVille Athletic Director Will Hostrawser presented Union-North School Board members with a proposal sent to him by Culver Athletic Director Andy Thomas to join a new conference.
There has been an abrupt change in LaVilleâ€™s current Northern State Conference with the departure of Culver Community and Knox. According to Hostrawser, the newly-proposed conference is spearheaded by Culver after the school was denied entry into the Midwest Conference.
BREMEN â€“ By their nature, athletic events lend themselves to all kinds of statistics. Even so, the most important one is still the final numbers on the scoreboard.
Despite winning most of the statistical categories Thursday evening at Janeâ€™s Park, Bremen Highâ€™s girls soccer team found itself on the wrong end of a 5-1 friendly with Mishawaka, a game that was much more competitive than the final tally.
