PLYMOUTH â€” A sectional bye can offer all sorts of advantages.
For Culver Military, it gave the Eagles a chance to scout Plymouth during its Sectional 7 opener with NorthWood Monday.
The visitors found a chink in the Rockiesâ€™ armor, and they were finally able to capitalize with a pair of goals midway through the second half en route to a 3-0 win over the hosts in a rainy sectional semifinal Wednesday at Kindt Field.
It took Triton seven weeks to break into the win column.
Coming off last weekâ€™s 21-10 Northern State Conference win at LaVille, the struggling Trojans can finally carry over some momentum into their match-up with Knox at home Friday night.
The Trojans rallied from a 10-7 halftime deficit with two scores and a shutout in the second half to spoil LaVilleâ€™s Senior Night last week. On Friday, theyâ€™re hoping to avoid a Senior Night letdown of their own as they face a Knox team with an identical 1-6 overall, 1-4 NSC mark.
BREMEN â€” Bremen and Triton received the most All-Northern State Conference boys tennis selections with four, while NSC team champion Jimtown finished with three as the All-NSC picks were announced recently.
Wes Burkholder won the 3 singles tournament and Krent Hueni and Tommy Foster won the 2 doubles tilt, while Bremen teammates Brad Foster and Nate Strehler earned all-conference at-large honors for the Lions. Triton fell short of any individual championships at the tourney, but Jeff Ross, Dean Howdeshell, Pete Kauffman and Lucas Shafer were all given at-large picks.
