WALKERTON â€” Coming off back-to-back losses against Knox and Jimtown, the Culver Cavaliers (5-2, 3-2 NSC) jump out of the frying pan and into the fire this week with a game at Northern State Conference foe John Glenn (6-1, 4-1 NSC).
In fact, Culver head coach Andy Thomas sees some parallels between the Jimmies and the Falcons, who were handed their only loss this season by Jimtown.
SOUTH BEND â€” Once again, Plymouth faced Culver Military at the South Bend Clay Regional.
Once again, the Pilgrims fell.
Plymouth's boys tennis squad lost a 3-2 decision Tuesday at Leeper Park, while Penn trumped South Bend St. Joseph's 3-2 to set up the championship match between the Eagles and the Kingsmen today.
"I told the kids I'm not great at losing, but we should stand with our heads high because there wasn't anybody who fell under the pressure," said Pilgrims head coach Michael Delp. "It was a battle, and we fought hard.
SOUTH BEND â€” With a Northern Lakes Conference title and their 17th straight tennis sectional championship in tow, the Plymouth boys tennis team still has their work cut out for them today.
Thatâ€™s because theyâ€™ll be facing longtime regional rival Culver Military Academy, which continued its own unbroken string of six straight sectional championships with a 4-1 victory over Rochester last Thursday, while South Bend St. Josephâ€™s will play Penn in the other semifinal of the South Bend Clay Regional at Leeper Park.
BREMEN â€” Plymouth won its 17th straight tennis sectional championship with a 5-0 victory over host Bremen at DeSantis Courts Friday.
â€śWe just talked about that thereâ€™s no entitlement,â€ť said Plymouth head boys tennis coach Michael Delp. â€śWe just wanted to focus on Bremen like we talked about and play really strong at the beginning of the match.â€ť
LAKEVILLE â€” LaVilleâ€™s football team modified its defense this week.
Judging from the results Friday, those changes might just stick.
The Lancersâ€™ defense submitted five turnovers â€”Â four fumble recoveries and an interception â€”Â along with a safety from defensive tackle Daniel Rensberger and held on for its first Northern State Conference win of the season, a 30-27 victory over the visiting Trojans on Senior Night at Lancer Field.
ELKHART â€” Plymouth played even with Concord after the break, but the Minutemen had already put the game away in the first half.
The Rockies outrushed the Minutemen 257 to 220 yards and tallied 15 first downs to Concordâ€™s 19, but No. 8-rated Plymouth finished just one drive, while the third-ranked Minute-men scored points on all but two possessions for a 27-6 Northern Lakes Conference victory in a match-up of state-ranked teams Friday at Concord.
