PLYMOUTH â€” After a pair of tough losses to Northern Lakes Conference powers Goshen and Northridge, Plymouthâ€™s girls soccer team needed a win before resuming conference play this weekend.
They got two.
Allie Wright scored the go-ahead on a Nicole Burdine assist in the 72nd minute, and Plymouth held on for its second win in two days, a 2-1 decision over visiting LaVille at home at Kindt Field.
It was the Rockiesâ€™ second straight home victory after a lopsided 9-0 rout of John Glenn Monday.
WALKERTON â€” Tuesdayâ€™s Northern State Conference meet at John Glenn was a match-up of two young squads. In the end, it was the slightly more experienced Falcons who claimed the victory, handing visiting LaVille losses on all five courts for their second NSC win.
â€śAny time you get a conference win itâ€™s something to hang your hat on. Weâ€™ve got a tough conference this year and an inexperienced squad. Weâ€™ve got a couple seniors, but we have five sophomores, so weâ€™re still building up a little bit and getting the guys some experience. Itâ€™s a good win,â€ť said Glenn tennis coach Chris Horvath.
CMA tops Rockies
Luther Jacobs scored twice, and Culver Military trumped sectional rival Plymouth 2-1 at home Tuesday.
Jacobs tallied an unassisted score in the first half then scored the game-winner on a Manuel Ituarte assist after Alex Orellana tied the game up with a solo goal in the second half.
Eric Aguilar made 10 saves in his return at goalkeeper for Plymouth.
