PLYMOUTH â€” Despite its youth, Plymouthâ€™s tennis lineup has been able to accomplish some pretty special things on its way to a 5-0 start to the season. On Thursday, though, the Pilgrimsâ€™ inexperience finally caught up with them.
Plymouth was able to take wins on both doubles courts, but the young Pilgrims â€”Â who feature two sophomores and one freshman in their singles lineup â€” were swept by a veteran Warsaw squad at all three singles positions, falling 3-2 to their Northern Lakes Conference rivals in a tennis meet at home at the Mary Beth Hunter Tennis Complex at Centennial Park.
As Week 3â€™s match-ups get under way tonight, Bremen and Culver Community are looking to build on their first wins in Week 2, while Culver Military is hoping to respond from a its first loss, a disappointing 28-20 defeat in a lightning-postponed game at NorthWood Saturday.
BREMEN (1-1) VS CLASS 4A No. 9 NEW PRAIRIE
Goshen tops Rockies
Plymouthâ€™s boys soccer team scored a goal in the final minute, but it was too little, too late against Northern Lakes Conference competitor Goshen in a 3-1 loss at home at Kindt Field Thursday night.
Brantley Joseph connected with Ronaldo Garcia in the 80th minute to put Plymouth on the board, but the Rockies were outshot 9-4 in shots on goal margin in the loss.
Jesus Dominguez scored twice in the 34th and 48th minutes for Goshen after Sebastian Flores-Cruz tallied the visitorsâ€™ first goal in the 28th minute.
PLYMOUTH â€” Two wins in convincing fashion is good, but Plymouthâ€™s Rockies know that the Northern Lakes Conference teams awaiting are likely not impressed.
â€śWeâ€™re off to a really good start from a lot of standpoints,â€ť said Plymouth coach John Barron. â€śWeâ€™ve learned a lot about some of our kids since weâ€™re playing a lot of young and inexperienced kids. Weâ€™re happy, but weâ€™re not satisfied about where we are.
Plymouth fights off Triton
Plymouthâ€™s boys tennis team fought off potential sectional foe Triton for a 4-1 victory in a match that was more competitive than the final score indicated at home in Centennial Park Wednesday night.
BREMEN â€” Neither coach could be unhappy with their teamsâ€™ offensive output. Now if they could just find a way to bring their defense up to the same level of play.
Bremen rallied from a 2-0 deficit after a somewhat sleepy start with three goals before the half, then responded to a Plymouth equalizer in the second stanza with a three-goal outburst and held on for a 6-4 win in an offense-heavy game with the Lionsâ€™ area rivals at Janeâ€™s Park Tuesday.
BREMEN â€” Bremenâ€™s girls cross country team earned an ideal finish at Tuesdayâ€™s Northern State Conference three-way with visiting Triton and LaVille.
The Lady Lions top five crowded out the top five overall spots in the field to breeze to the top of the meet standings with 15 points. A pretty nice finish under any circumstances, but an especially impressive result racing without the teamâ€™s usual number one.
