PLYMOUTH â€” Visiting Clay battled back in the third set, but Plymouthâ€™s squad clamped down on Senior Night to finish off the Colonials in the minimum of games, 25-14, 25-18, 25-19 Tuesday.
After leading all the way through, the Pilgrims battled through a total of five ties during the final game at The Rock, putting away Clay with a decisive 11-5 run.
â€śOur serving got a little tougher and we got some service errors on them, and that made the difference that last game,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Walt Pickerell.
KNOX â€” Josh Andersonâ€™s running style resembles something like the merger of a cheetah and bulldozer.
And with John Glennâ€™s football team looking a little lethargic Friday at Knox, it needed every bit of Andersonâ€™s speed-power combination.
The junior running back scored four touchdowns â€”Â one during each frame â€” rushed for a game-leading 237 yards on 25 carries, and caught a two-point conversion pass for good measure to apply a little shine on an otherwise subdued 29-0 Northern State Conference win at Community Field.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was a good end to a bad week.
â€śItâ€™s a great end to a bad week,â€ť said Plymouth football head coach John Barron on the field after his teamâ€™s 34-14 win over Warsaw on Friday. â€śMy dad was watching this one. It was awesome.â€ť
Barron knew that he wouldnâ€™t be able to be on the sideline for this weekâ€™s game, owing to his ejection a week ago at Rochester. Barron also had to deal with the death of his father early in the week taking him away from his team to be with his family.
BOURBON â€” After a pair of close contests last year, both Tritonâ€™s and Culverâ€™s head coaches knew Friday nightâ€™s Northern State Conference kickoff at Triton was going to be a battle.
The game delivered as billed, but Michael Salary returned to power the Cavaliersâ€™ running game, Culverâ€™s defense delivered in the clutch, and in the end the visitors took a closer-than-the-final-score 21-13 victory over the host Trojans.
BOURBON â€” It wasnâ€™t the prettiest match of the season, but Triton will take the end result.
The Lady Trojans returned from a second-game loss to topple Culver 25-12, 18-25, 25-9, 25-21 in a Northern State Conference volleyball victory over Culver Community at Triton Thursday.
â€śWeâ€™re struggling with our competitiveness this season, but they overcame that and we still got the win,â€ť Triton head coach Terrin Meister said.
Triton dominated the first set, but Culver (2-8, 0-1) fought back and benefited from numerous miss-hits and unforced errors.
SYRACUSE â€” Despite a 2-1 shooting margin, Argos had to come from behind to salvage a 1-1 tie with Wawasee on the road Thursday.
Mallory Rondeau beat three Dragons and hit a great shot across the goal to give the hosts a lead midway through the first half.
BOURBON â€” As conference schedules open up around the state this week, Culver heads to sectional and Northern State Conference foe Triton on Friday.
The two teams have a strong rivalry going after a couple of close battles last season. Culver (2-0) won both contests, including a 20-13 victory that unseated reigning Sectional 33 champ Triton (1-1) in round two of the tourney last October.
Plenty of returning Trojans are bound to have a bitter taste left in their mouths over that result, and Culver head coach Andy Thomas is expecting another close fight this weekend.
BOURBON â€”Â The Plymouth and Triton boys tennis teams couldnâ€™t overcome Mother Nature Wednesday.
Ninety minutes in, rain put an end to the teamsâ€™ match. With both squads playing again Thursday, it was decided drying time would take too long, and the match was postponed to a later date.
â€śItâ€™s hard to schedule a make-up once you get going in the season, but I know weâ€™ll definitely try to get this one going again,â€ť Triton coach Al Peckham said.
ARGOS â€” Argos took a 5-1 decision over visiting Logansport Tuesday night, getting a pair of goals each from Samantha Stults and Ally Rospopo.
The Berries struck first when freshman Whitney Jennings corralled an errant Dragon pass and took it in for the score in the 13th minute. Rospopo leveled the match with five minutes to go in the half on a rebound in front of the goal.
PLYMOUTH â€” Down a man, Plymouth's offense stepped up the tempo on Bremen and nearly pulled off the win.
Bremen goalie Pedro Jimenez and the Lions back line also stepped up their play, however, thwarting a total of six shots on goal in a roughly 15-minute span to force a 2-2 draw with the host Rockies in a boys soccer game at Kindt Field Tuesday.
