PLYMOUTH â€”Â The young Rockies did some growing up Friday night.
After failing to convert on a pair of fourth-down conversions from the Rochester 2-yard line in the gameâ€™s opening 13 minutes and giving up a pair of big play touchdowns in the second and third frames, Plymouth found itself down 13-0 early in the second half.
But the Rockies finished five of their next six drives and surrendered just one more Rochester score to claim a 34-20 come-from-behind win over the visiting Zebras at The Rockpile.
BOURBON â€”Â Triton football head coach Rodney Younis felt his teamâ€™s offensive rhythm start to slip with a pair of late first-half interceptions Friday.
The second half turned into an all-out free fall on both sides of the ball.
Trailing by six at halftime, visiting Northfield held Triton to just 41 yards of total offense after the intermission and scored during four of its five second-half possessions to pull away from the Trojans, 43-20.
WALKERTON â€” An opportunity to end over two decades of frustration was there for the taking Friday for the John Glenn High football team.
Unfortunately, Brody Olson stepped in to add to the Falconsâ€™ misery.
Olsonâ€™s grab of a tipped pass good for 30 yards midway through the fourth quarter, helped Jimtown on its way to the winning touchdown and a thrilling 14-13 victory over Glenn in Northern State Conference action at Falcon Field.
NAPPANEE â€” According to the statistics, CMA should have won the game against the NorthWood Panthers Friday night, as the Eagles outgained NorthWood 295 yards to 229 and had 15 first downs to the Panthersâ€™ nine, but five CMA turnovers were the difference as the Panthers downed CMA 27-18 at Andrews Field in Nappanee.
