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.
ARGOS â€”Â The Argos Dragons got off to a slow start Tuesday night at Eugene Snyder Field but were able to overcome that sluggish start in the second half and defeat the LaVille Lancers by a score of 5-0.
The Lancers came out with a defensive mindset from the start, hoping to slow down the potent Dragon attack.
â€śI knew we had to play a defensive game against Argos, and thatâ€™s what we did,â€ť said LaVille coach Tom Kline. â€śI was very pleased with the way they played. This is the best game they have played all year for me. My keeper kept us alive. Sophomore Jackson Jones is a great goalie.â€ť

WALKERTON â€” In years past, a 6-0 loss at the hands of Jimtown might have seemed pretty respectable. It might even have been thought of as a kind of moral victory for John Glenn.
You couldnâ€™t tell that to first-year Falcons coach Dave Sharpe after Saturdayâ€™s loss, though.
Sharpe â€” the son of longtime Jimtown football coach Bill Sharpe and a former Jimmies football player himself â€” was taciturn following his teamâ€™s narrow 6-0 defeat at the hands of its Northern State Conference rival in Walkerton.
NorthWood tops LaVille for Argos Invite crown
NorthWood beat LaVille 4-0 to win the Argos Girls Soccer Invitational championship over the weekend.
The Panthers broke a scoreless tie at the half with two unassisted scores from Val Ostrowski in the first three minutes of the second half. Kaitlyn Heckaman scored on a pass from Kiersten Lehman, while Amanda Heckaman found Ostrowski for the final score.
In the consolation game, Munster beat Argos 2-1 with goals from Jessica Flores and Allyson Goodrich. Mariah Lineberry scored for Argos, assisted by Courtney Dunlap.
SEYMOUR â€” The LaVille high school football game at Trinity Lutheran has been moved forward from 7 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The Lancers are looking for their second win of the series after a 56-14 win at home last year, as well as their second win of the season following last week's 31-0 rout of South Central.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was rain shortened, but it will count as a win. The IHSAA will decide the score.
With constant lightening in the area Plymouth and Rochester were unable to continue their Friday night game at Plymouth. After a Plymouth 29-yard touchdown run by Michael Hartman with 9:24 to play in the third quarter, officials delayed the game for lightening the first time with the Rockies in front 35-0.
With the decision not to resume the game it will be up to the IHSAA to decide if that will remain the final or whether it will be a 2-0 forfeit decision.

LAKEVILLE â€”Â Most observers of the ongoing Northern State Conference break-up considered LaVilleâ€™s departure from the conference pretty much a done deal. On Friday, with the deadline to quit or stay imminent, LaVille AD Will Hostrawser made the announcement that many were already expecting.
