‘NLC, NLC, NLC’: Plymouth claims share of title with home win over NorthWood

October 13, 2012

PLYMOUTH — NFL football fans will remember the old “Ground Chuck” offense of Chuck Knox’s Los Angeles Rams, and Plymouth fans will likely remember “Ground Jack” or John if you prefer from the Rockies 38-21 Friday night win over NorthWood.
Plymouth claimed a share of the Northern Lakes Conference title with the win, and welcomed a bit of the future in quarterback Jack Barron. The Plymouth freshman entered the game after Kyle Lacefield’s ankle injury late in the second quarter and while he didn’t have a pass attempt in the game managed the Plymouth offense to a big conference win.

Lions upend Falcons

October 13, 2012

WALKERTON — Bremen has become a pretty nice second half team.
Last week the Lions outplayed Class 3A No. 1 Jimtown 6-0 in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to get the win. On Friday, Bremen rallied back from a 17-14 halftime deficit to spoil Senior Night at John Glenn, 34-24, in a back-and-forth regular season-closer for third place in the Northern State Conference.

Cavs survive LaVille, turnovers

October 13, 2012

CULVER — Culver Community and LaVille both tested positive for raging cases of fumblitis Friday.
Fortunately for the host Cavs, they put up enough offense prior to contracting the dread disease to pick up a 21-7 Northern State Conference football win over the Lancers on Senior Night.
Culver crossed the goal line in three of its first four possessions, ultimately overcoming four turnovers — three of those deep inside LaVille turf.

Special Senior Night for CMA

October 13, 2012

CULVER — It was a special Senior Night in Culver as the Eagles dominated the Fairfield Falcons early and held on to a 40-24 win.

Argos advances at Caston Regional

October 12, 2012

FULTON — Argos sophomore striker Damon Binkley has already put in plenty of hero moments for his team this season.
On Thursday, he added a few more.
Fresh off his sectional championship-sealing score in the final minute against Bremen last Saturday, Binkley notched a hat trick and an assist, helping power the Dragons to a 4-2 Caston Regional Semifinal win over Carroll.

Eagles look to complete perfect home slate against Fairfield as area teams cap off regular season tonight

October 12, 2012

The Eagles have a lot to play for tonight.
At the start of the season, Culver Military head football coach Andy Dorrel had a hunch this year’s squad might be able to have a special season, and at 6-2, his team is on the verge of its first perfect home slate since 2005, which has included wins over Class A No. 1 Lafayette Central Catholic and Class 2A No. 4 Churubusco in Weeks 4 and 7.
A win over Fairfield tonight would provide a fitting Senior Night capper to the Eagles’ regular season as well as a good springboard into CMA’s Sectional 17 opener at John Glenn next week.

Vervynckt is Plymouth’s ‘rock’ at 1 singles

October 12, 2012

PLYMOUTH — To think, one of Plymouth’s all-time best tennis players was nearly a soccer player instead.
Last Saturday, Pilgrims senior No. 1 Gabe Vervynckt became the school’s first LaPorte Regional qualifier in recent memory at the Culver Military Individual Sectional. His 7-5, 7-5 win over previously unbeaten North Judson foreign exchange student Thomas Simon earned him the right to advance and pushed him to a career record of 72-26 at Plymouth, a program record for singles wins.
But in the weeks before his freshman tennis season, Veryvnckt was leaning towards soccer instead.

Friday’s game no tune-up for Rockies

October 11, 2012

PLYMOUTH — A week ago Plymouth’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, Kastner’s situation was a little more complicated.

Hodges brothers celebrating family time on the gridiron

October 11, 2012

CRAWFORDSVILLE — Wabash College has a long and storied football legacy, even having defeated Notre Dame — granted it was in 1905 — 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.
