BOURBON â€” After four straight losses to Triton, Plymouth wanted to make a statement early in new head coach Ryan Balesâ€™ first game at the helm.
The Pilgrims used swarming fullcourt pressure to hold their Marshall County rivals to 2 of 15 from the field in the first half en route to a 27-17 lead at the intermission, then withstood a late rally early in the second half by the Trojans for a 60-43 season-opening victory on the road at the Trojan Trench Tuesday.
LaVille loses at Marian
LaVille watched a slim three-point halftime edge disappear with a 43-23 second half by host Mishawaka Marian, and the Lancers took their first loss of the season to the Knights on the road Tuesday, 73-56.
Andrew Hostetler led LaVille (1-1) in scoring, knocking down 6 of 13 3-point attempts for 18 points, while Nick Amor finished with 12 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Jordyn Williams tallied 10 points as the third and final LaVille player in double figures in the loss.

LAKEVILLE â€” LaVille head coach Michael Edison didnâ€™t feel he said anything particularly inspiring at his teamâ€™s first time out.
The Lancers sure came out of the break like a team on fire, though.
Edison burned his teamâ€™s first time out at the 6:04 mark of the second quarter after a 4-0 quarter-opening mini run by visiting Westville cut LaVilleâ€™s lead to a single point, 15-14. When play resumed, the Lancers ran out the half on a 22-7 tear to take control of the game for good in an eventual 72-56 season-opening win over the visiting Blackhawks at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Friday night.
Oregon-Davis fans cheer on the Bobcats in their boys basketball season opener at Triton Wednesday.
