PLYMOUTH â€” Two steps forward, one step back.
Coming off a breakthrough week in which they broke into the Northern Lakes Conference win column and put together their first consecutive wins, the Pilgrims suffered a setback Friday, falling to NLC foe Goshen 48-37 in a Homecoming spoiler at The Rock.
Plymouth got off to a slow start as the visiting Redskins held the home team to just three points in the first quarter and 13 total points at the half, snapping a five-game losing streak in the Pilgrimsâ€™ worst offensive showing since a Nov. 30 loss to Triton.
CULVER â€” Culver Communityâ€™s girls basketball team viewed its regular-season finale as a sectional contest.
If the Cavs bring the kind of swagger to the real deal that they brought to the pseudo-sectional, watch out.
Class 2A No. 6 Culver allowed just two points over the opening 14:21 â€”Â highlighted by a nearly 11-minute scoreless stretch â€”Â en route to a 45-22 Northern State Conference win over visiting John Glenn at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Friday.
CULVER â€” John Glenn boys basketball head coach Travis Hannah views his team as one that needs to scratch and claw each and every game.
Hard to argue with that assessment.
The Falcons shot just 31 percent from the foul line and 20 percent from 3-point range, but kept afloat by a strong defensive effort, fought their way to a 41-31 Northern State Conference win over Culver Community at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Friday.
LAKEVILLE â€” Triton and LaVille wanted a momentum boost going into the postseason, and the visiting Trojans got it Friday night.
Megan Howdeshell, Emily Duff and Lindsey Ganshorn all scored in double figures with 15, 13 and 12, respectively as Triton notched a 53-38 victory, its 11th in the last 12 meetings between the Northern State Conference rivals.
