Area football teams get back to basics in Week 6

September 22, 2011

For several area teams, Week 6 is about sweating the fundamentals and bouncing back.
Nothing takes away the taste of a tough loss like a victory, and no one wants one more than Plymouth.
The Rockies (3-2, 2-1 NLC) suffered a bruising defeat at Elkhart Memorial last week. The Chargers held Plymouth’s run game to a mere 123 yards to snap a three-game win streak and handed the visitors their first Northern Lakes Conference loss of the year 35-0, the first shutout since eighth-year head coach John Barron took the reins in 2004.

September 20, 2011

PLYMOUTH — With Northridge already up three match points in a high-stakes Northern Lakes Conference meet, it might have been tempting to just give up; it may have been hard to focus on the task at hand.
But with the conference tournament coming up Wednesday and every seed a crucial one, Plymouth No. 2 Lane Singleton bore down to salvage a three-set victory 7-6(5), 4-6, 6-3 for the only win by a Pilgrim upperclassman on a disappointing Senior Night at Centennial Park Monday.
