A second half commitment by Plymouth to its â€śchaos defenseâ€ť â€” every passing lane, every shot, every dribble challenged for the fullcourt â€” produced a tidal wave that Goshen could not recover from in a 59-34 Northern Lakes Conference win for the Pilgrims.
â€śI give our assistant coaches a lot of credit,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Ryan Bales. â€śThey made the recommendation that we press and get after it a little more, and our kids executed that game plan.â€ť
CULVER â€” Defense and a drive propelled John Glenn to a boys-girls Northern State Conference basketball doubleheader sweep at Culver Community Friday.
