PLYMOUTH â€” After Plymouthâ€™s Tuesday night 63-43 win over Triton it was a tale of two coaches â€” one upset, one pleased â€” pretty much for the same reason.
â€śThe frustrating part is that we worked on it for quite awhile not dribbling right away, using pass fakes, simple things like that that I thought we didnâ€™t do,â€ť said Triton boss Jason Groves. â€śI knew we would have some (turnovers), and I wanted to keep it to a minimum. It was frustrating the way we were turning it over. We didnâ€™t execute.â€ť
WALKERTON â€” The Wildcats used their team speed to jump out to an early lead at John Glenn Tuesday. By the time the Falcons adjusted to the game tempo, it was already too late.
South Bend Riley used zone pressure both in the full- and the halfcourt to fluster Glennâ€™s young players into early turnovers and utilized good team speed to create some transition buckets and grab a 17-4 lead at the first quarter break, stretching the gap to 22 points at the half.
ROCHESTER â€” The Lady Zebrasâ€™ ability to hit free throws in the final quarter proved to be the difference as Rochester squeaked by Culver, 48-47.
Rochester was able to hit 11 of 14 from the line in the final quarter, and none bigger than junior Breanne Paulikâ€™s two that put the Zebras up three with 25.3 seconds left to go in the game. Culver Junior Kayla Shaffer was able to hit a shot to bring the Cavaliers within one with 7 seconds left, but the Cavaliers were not able to get a foul called until only 0.2 was showing on the clock.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” The Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association (ICGSA) announced the Soccer All-State team for 2012. Argos senior striker Jami Patterson was named Third Team All-State and was the lone selection from Marshall County this year.
