Culver's streak ends at Knox

September 25, 2010

Culver’s program-record winning streak came to an end Friday as Knox put up a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter to break a 14-all halftime tie and grab a 28-14 Northern State Conference home win over the Class A, sixth-ranked Cavaliers.
The Cavs had trouble limiting the big play as two of Knox’s scores came on a 46-yard pass and a 46-yard run.

Falcons scoreless streak ends, winning streak lives on at CMA

September 25, 2010

CULVER — The Eagles ended John Glenn’s shutout streak, but it was too little, too late as the Falcons claimed a 49-12 victory at Culver Academies Friday.
Glenn scored two touchdowns in all but the fourth quarter, and the Falcons defensive unit held CMA to just 45 total net offensive yards in the first half, shutting out the home team for three quarters — its sixth such performance in six games this year — before a Juwan Brescacin touchdown catch and a Pierre Byrne 5-yard run in the fourth quarter concluded a streak of 15 scoreless quarters by Glenn opponents.

Wawasee hands Rockies 1st regular-season loss since ‘07

September 25, 2010

PLYMOUTH — It’s been a while — two years to be exact.
Wawasee’s Warriors put an end to a remarkable streak for Plymouth’s Rockies Friday night with a 27-17 win at Plymouth. The last team to beat Plymouth in a regular-season game was NorthWood in the final game of the 2007 season. The last time the Rockies lost at home was to Rochester, in the second game of that same season.
It appeared that maybe the Rockies would be on their way to a third straight thrilling come-from-behind win, with Brock Smith playing Superman, but it was not to be.

Lions favored as NSC tilt opens

September 24, 2010

BREMEN — After winning the round robin of the Northern State Conference race, Bremen entered the NSC Tournament as the favorites Thursday.
The Lions won at two of three singles courts at the conference opener, and their two doubles teams earned a bye with the No. 1 seed at their positions to keep Bremen the favorite heading into Saturday’s tourney finals, but head coach Andrew Rohde isn’t taking anything for granted.

Plymouth knocks off visiting Lions in 3 games

September 23, 2010

PLYMOUTH — If you blinked you probably missed a good chunk of Plymouth’s volleyball match against visiting Bremen Wednesday.
Boosted by a lightning-fast start, the Pilgrims needed just 53 minutes to dispatch Bremen 25-4, 25-12, 25-18 in an intra-county squabble at The Rock.
Plymouth packed a powerful punch at the net and blanketed its half of the court while breezing through the first two games.

Pilgrims keeping it light for regional

September 23, 2010

KENDALLVILLE — Jack Kinney knows his team’s odds at the East Noble regional are a long shot.
With the kinds of teams populating the field at Cobblestone Saturday — including Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association top 20-rated East Noble and DeKalb as well as undefeated Northern Lakes Conference and Warsaw Sectional champ Wawasee — grabbing one of the top three team standings to qualify for the state meet is going to be an uphill climb. So the Lady Pilgrims aren’t sweating it. They’re keeping things breezy and come tourney time, they’ll see if they can shake things up.

Area football teams enter second half of season

September 23, 2010

LAKEVILLE — As the second half of the season gets under way Friday, area teams are looking to pick up some steam heading into postseason play.
The Bremen Lions (3-4, 1-2 NSC) have taken some lumps this season, including last Friday’s disappointing 23-20 Homecoming loss to Northern State Conference foe Culver. That’s left them on the wrong side of .500, and they’re hoping to get back to winning form at LaVille this week.
“We honestly feel we’re probably six or seven plays away from being 4-1, and that’s a tough spot to be at 2-3,” said Bremen head coach Bob Holmes.

Lancers shut out Culver 5-0

September 22, 2010

LAKEVILLE — LaVille recorded 22 shots on goal to just three by Culver, and the surging Lancers shut out the slumping Cavaliers 5-0 at Newton Park Tuesday.
It was LaVille’s sixth straight victory, and head coach Kevin Christy said his Lancers seem to be peaking at the right time heading into the home stretch of the season.
“The last time we played Culver at the Blueberry Festival I think the score was 4-2,” he said. “We’ve definitely improved since then."

Young Rockies developing as Plymouth hosts Wawasee

September 22, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Losing their two main offensive weapons on nearly back to back plays didn’t seem to faze Plymouth’s Rockies in taking a win a week ago over Elkhart Memorial.
After some initial shock losing Brock Smith and Houston Hodges to injury, the Rockies regrouped behind sophomore quarterback Ike Kastner and running back Sam Stevens.
