Cross country sectionals begin today

October 12, 2010

CULVER — As the 2010 Cross Country State Tournament gets underway today, Plymouth is looking to build on last year’s success.
At the Culver Academies Sectional, Plymouth’s girls hope to build on last year’s fourth-place regional-berth finish and unseat defending champion and host Culver Girls Academy.
While the Lady Eagles retain 2009 sectional and regional champion Waverly Neer from last season’s campaign as well as fellow senior Kaye Sitterly, three of last year’s top five have since moved on.

Panthers reclaim sectional title from Lancers

October 11, 2010

LAKEVILLE — The Panthers needed just one goal Saturday to reclaim their title.
Eduardo Salinas scored a clean-up goal less than seven minutes in, and the NorthWood defense made the lone strike stand up as the Panthers unseated last year’s champion LaVille 1-0 in the LaVille Boys Soccer Sectional championship game to restore themselves as sectional titleholders Saturday at Newton Park.

Falcons power past Cavs in 2nd half

October 9, 2010

WALKERTON — Happy Homecoming, John Glenn.
After a nip-tuck first half, the Falcons took over the momentum just seconds before halftime and positively dominated the second half, beating Class A No. 9 Culver by a safe 35-14 margin. Meanwhile down the road, Bremen gave Glenn a little help in its hopes to claim its first Northern State Conference title in nearly 30 years with a 25-14 win over visiting Jimtown to bring the Falcons even with the Jimmies at 6-1 in the NSC standings.

Knox defense takes control at Triton

October 9, 2010

BOURBON — Knox linebacker Jordan Beem’s 50-yard interception return with 5.4 seconds left in the game at Triton somehow felt appropriate.
Not that Beem’s touchdown-scoring tightrope walk down the sideline affected the outcome in any way, but it certainly placed an exclamation mark on the Redskins’ superlative defensive effort.
Knox forced six turnovers — three picks and three fumble recoveries — piled up six tackles for a loss, and held the Trojans to 157 yards of total offense in a 27-0 Northern State Conference football win Friday.

Rockies back on track in win over Goshen

October 9, 2010

GOSHEN — After two losses, the Plymouth Rockies dominated Goshen on the road Friday night.
The Rockies outrushed the Redskins 330-193 yards, Houston Hodges got involved in the running game and threw two touchdown passes, and Plymouth used a big second quarter to catapult to a 41-20 Northern Lakes Conference win.
It was the largest margin of defeat for Goshen so far this year.

Like old days: Lions take down Jimtown

October 9, 2010

BREMEN — Headed into their game against Class 3A No. 2 Jimtown, the Lions were considered the easy underdogs.
But Bremen pulled off the impossible Friday, snapping a 29-game Northern State Conference win streak stretching back to 2006 with a convincing 25-14 victory over the Jimmies in front of a home crowd at Don Bunge Field.
“First and foremost I think it was a tremendous win for our kids and our community and everybody else,” said Bremen head football coach Bob Holmes. “This is a great community, and they’ve backed us the entire season. It’s just a great win for a great community.”

Panthers, Lancers survive at LaVille Sectional

October 8, 2010

LAKEVILLE — The LaVille Boys Soccer Sectional first round hinged upon recovery and survival at Newton Park Thursday.
NorthWood, led by Ryan Lincoln’s hat trick, recovered from a 3-1 halftime deficit to eliminate Bremen 4-3, while defending sectional champion LaVille survived a late push from John Glenn to escape the nightcap with a 2-1 victory.
The Lancers and Panthers meet in Saturday’s title round at 7 p.m. at Newton Park.

Rockies, Dragons fall at soccer Sectional

October 8, 2010

ARGOS — It was a bad night for Marshall County teams at the Argos Boys Soccer Sectional.
First, defending sectional champ Warsaw coasted past the host Dragons for a 5-0 victory, and then an early mistake wound up costing the Plymouth Rockies their bid at a championship as they fell to Manchester 1-0.

Jimtown spoils Triton Senior Night

October 8, 2010

BOURBON — It is nice to face a lesser foe on senior night. The Triton volleyball team was not so fortunate Thursday evening.
Jimtown put a damper on the festivities honoring Triton’s eight seniors with a 25-15, 25-18, 25-17 win, its 18th of the season.
“I’m really proud of the way the girls played tonight,” Triton coach Terrin Meister said. “We did do some great things, but we just have to get over that hump.”
Jimtown (18-6, 4-2 Northern State Conference) knew it had to overcome a motivated opponent.
