BOURBON â€” With three match points already in the bank, Triton head coach Allen Peckham decided to play it safe.
Jackson Downing and Wil Rettinger had already secured their three-set victory over Bremenâ€™s Joe Zeltwanger and Nate Strehler 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 at 2 doubles, and with Austin Kanarr ailing with a leg injury and a busy stretch of conference matches on the horizon, Peckham called the No. 1 doubles match.
The forfeit had no affect on the outcome of the team result, however, as Downingâ€™s and Rettingerâ€™s victory sewed up a 3-2 NSC win for Triton over visiting Bremen Monday in Bourbon.
WINONA LAKE â€” Bremen senior Heather Martin has signed on to play womenâ€™s soccer at Grace College for the 2012-13 season.

â€śI fell in love with Grace the first time I went there. I love the people and the campus,â€ť Martin said. â€śI am looking forward to glorifying God and balling it up on the soccer field while at the same time growing in wisdom to prepare myself for life.â€ť
