CULVER â€” Inspiration can take many forms.
Last Friday night, the Culver Academy football team leaned on their coach and a former player to muster the confidence and fortitude it would take to knock off the Class A, No. 1 ranked Lafayette Central Catholic Knights.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s â€śRoad Warriorsâ€ť will return to the Rock on Friday hoping to pick up their first home football win of the 2012 season.
The Rockies, who are 2-0 on the season away from home and a shocking 0-2 at PHS, returned to full strength at Northridge a week ago and the defense responded by pitching a shutout in a 34-0 win. It was a complete turnaround for the unit that was much maligned in the first three games.
After some disappointing production last weekend, several area teams are focusing on offense this week.
Culver was nearly shut out by visiting New Prairie in a tough 54-6 loss, while Bremen narrowly nipped Triton in a 7-0 decision.
The Lions (2-2, 1-1 NSC) and the Cavs (1-3, 1-1 NSC) are trying to address some of their offensive woes as they face off in a Northern State Conference game at Bremen Friday. Ball security is a specific area of concern for both after Culver surrendered three turnovers and the Lions coughed up four in Week 4.
WARSAW â€” Thereâ€™s an old saying in golf that you play the course, not your opponent.
While the Plymouthâ€™s girls golf team is certainly happy to be seeded third at Saturdayâ€™s Warsaw Golf Sectional, thatâ€™s the mindset the Lady Pilgrims are trying to cultivate.
Triton knots top of NSC standings with win vs Jimtown
Triton handed visiting Jimtown its first Northern State Conference loss, 3-2 in a boys tennis meet Wednesday, leaving the Trojans tied with the Jimmies behind Bremen at the top of the conference standings.
Jeff Ross won 6-1, 6-2 at 1 singles, and Dean Howdeshell won in two 6-2 sets at 2 singles for Triton. Pete Kauffman and Lucas Shafer trumped Jimtown's Cole Peterson and Brett Aller in two competitive sets at 1 doubles, 6-4, 7-5.
