GOSHEN â€” There is a history of the unexpected when Plymouthâ€™s Rockies visit Foreman Field in Goshen and while the Rockies walked away with a convincing 28-16 Northern Lakes Conference win, it didnâ€™t come without a price.
WALKERTON â€” Deep inside, Derek Hiler must have the heart of a boxer. When he gets knocked down, he immediately gets back up.
After being stopped cold a week ago against New Prairie, where the Cougar = defense held him to just 13 yards rushing, Hiler bounced back in a big way Friday night.
The Falcon senior rushed for 159 yards and scored three touchdowns as Glenn trounced Culver Community, 35-6. Oh, and Hiler was named Glennâ€™s Homecoming king, as well.
BOURBON â€” On a wet, soggy night, Knox came to Bourbon and handed the Triton Trojans their seventh loss of the season by a score of 28-7. Triton played better than the score would show, but fiveÂ turnovers kept them from keeping the score close.
According to Triton head coach Rodney Younis you canâ€™t expect anything but a loss with that many turnovers.
â€śBottom line is turnovers hurt us,â€ť Younis said. â€śYou canâ€™t expect to win ball games when you turn it over as much as we did tonight.Â Our effort was good tonight, but itâ€™s hard to win ball games when you turn it over as much as we did.â€ť
BREMEN â€” Bremen scuffled to a slow start, and when the long green line finally got rolling, it was too little, too late in a loss to visiting Jimtown Friday.
The Lions outplayed Class 3A No. 1 Jimtown 6-0 in the second half, holding the unbeaten Jimmies to their lowest points production and slimmest margin of victory this year with the second-half shutout. But none of it was enough to pull the home team back from a 21-0 halftime deficit as Bremen suffered a 21-6 Northern State Conference setback at Don Bunge Field.
