PLYMOUTH â€” A week ago Plymouthâ€™s Rockies were riding the wave of an almost unstoppable offense and a rejuvenated defense.
In the rain at Goshen, injuries became an issue for the offense. On almost successive plays senior playmakers Sam Stevens and Ike Kastner went down with shoulder injuries. Shortly thereafter offensive tackle Adam Lacefield left with an ankle injury. While there was never much doubt that Stevens and Lacefield would return this week, Kastnerâ€™s situation was a little more complicated.
CRAWFORDSVILLE â€” Wabash College has a long and storied football legacy, even having defeated Notre Dame â€” granted it was in 1905 â€” and part of that legacy will be a pair of brothers from Plymouth.
Austin Hodges, now a senior for the Little Giants, and younger brother sophomore Houston Hodges have spent the past two seasons anchoring the Wabash secondary as starting cornerbacks. It was a twosome that almost never happened.
ARGOS â€” Itâ€™s funny how things work out.
Argosâ€™ girls soccer team was tied 1-1 with Boone Grove in the final minute of their sectional championship game Saturday afternoon in DeMotte. If Jami Patterson hadnâ€™t been able to put away the game-winner with 34 seconds on the clock, the Lady Dragons might not have gotten to Culver in time to catch the final minutes of the boysâ€™ sectional title rematch with Bremen later in the day. And if they hadnâ€™t been there, the Dragons, who were knotted in a 0-0 stalemate with the Lions, might not have gotten the boost they needed in the gameâ€™s homestretch.
