PLYMOUTH â€” The woes of the big inning continued to haunt Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims Monday night as they dropped an NLC battle with Northridge by a 9-5 final.
The Pilgrims battled back after a two-run Northridge first to take a 4-2 lead on a three-run Bailey Clark homer in the Plymouth half of the inning. Plymouth added another in the third on a Clark sac fly to make it 5-3.
Then the bottom fell out.
PLYMOUTH â€” A Plymouth volleyball alum will be reunited with her former coach at Ancilla next season.
Amber Redinger, a four-year varsity player in both volleyball and basketball, recently inked on to play volleyball with the Lady Chargers beginning next season, where sheâ€™ll have a chance to play for former PHS head volleyball coach and current Ancilla assistant coach Walt Pickerell once more.
KNOX â€”Â John Glenn traveled to Knox Monday night and dismantled the Redskins in five innings by a 10-0 score.
Glennâ€™s Justin Gierlowski threw his second no-hitter of the season and recorded his third double-digit strikeout game with 10 ks. With his offspeed pitches setting up his fastball, Gierlowski controlled the game. But it was a one-out walk to Knoxâ€™s Scott Trojan in the fifth that ruined his perfect game.

Tritonâ€™s Quentyn Carpenter fired a 1-under 35 on the back side at Mystic Hills to win his third Marshall County Golf Championship Saturday.
Bremenâ€™s Jasmine Schafer helped set two meet records while winning four events as the Lady Lions won the Kouts Relays Saturday.
CULVER â€” Whatever a playerâ€™s score on the front side at Mystic, he can usually count on adding a few stokes on the courseâ€™s hilly back nine. Tritonâ€™s Quentyn Carpenter shaved one.
Carpenter entered the turn trailing fellow top flighter Trent Elliott of Culver Community as well as teammate Ryan Rapp and Cam Gurtner of LaVille by a stroke, but he birdied the 12th and 13th to move into the lead, then followed a bogey on the 15th with par golf over the final three holes to reclaim the individual Marshall County Golf Championship with an even-par 71 Saturday.
Lions win Kouts Relays
Bremenâ€™s boys track and field team won seven different events, and the Lions won the team championship at the Kouts Relays Saturday.
Reid Zellmer was a triple winner for Bremen in the open 400, the 4x400 relay with Jon Stoller, Joel Miller and Kevin Heckaman and the 4x100 relay with Heckaman, Caleb Walter and Evan Wilson.
Thomas Dean won the 800 and ran anchor for Bremenâ€™s winning 3200 relay team comprised of himself, Clayton Thornton, Bryan Starcevich and Kris Wickens. Nate Strehler won the discus, and Beau Beeson won the pole vault at the big meet.
PLYMOUTH â€” Analyzing the Plymouth Pilgrimsâ€™ Friday game with NorthWood, you could say the weather was beautiful at Bill Nixon Field.
It was hard to find much else positive as Plymouth had one of those games teams have in a long baseball season, dropping a 15-0 decision in five innings. The Pilgrims surrendered a seven spot to the Panthers â€” highlighted by a three-run homer by NorthWoodâ€™s Blake Cleveland â€” digging a hole it was hard to dig out of.
