PLYMOUTH â€” It wasnâ€™t that long ago that the Pilgrims took a lopsided regular-season win over Culver Military.
While that Valentineâ€™s Day victory must have still been fresh in Plymouthâ€™s mind in its sectional opener Wednesday, the Pilgrims certainly didnâ€™t seem to be looking past CMA as they handed the Eagles another lopsided loss in much the same fashion, 51-29 in a Sectional 19 quarterfinal at The Rock.
