Cavs ride big 3rd quarter
to conference win at LaVille
Culver scored 14 points in the third quarter to take a 28-12 advantage over host LaVille, and the Cavaliers held on for a 41-26 Northern State Conference win Friday.
The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Culver, while beleaguered LaVille finished the season winless.
FULTON â€” Both teams struggled with the field width and the weather at the outset, but Argos adjusted a little quicker.
The Dragons scored a pair of goals in the 18th and 25th minutes and made them stand up despite some late pressure by Oak Hill for a 2-1 semifinal victory at the Class A Caston Boys Soccer Regional Thursday.
Fresh from its first sectional championship in a decade at the Culver Community Sectional Saturday, Argos moves on to face the winner of the late semifinal contest between Peru and West Lafayette in the regional championship Saturday at 7 p.m.
Sectional times and dates have been determined by the host schools for the 40th Annual IHSAA State Volleyball Tournament.
The sectional stage of the tournament begins next Tuesday, Oct. 18 and continues through Saturday, Oct. 22.

Plymouth downs Triton
Triton came on strong in the final set, but it was too little, too late against the visiting Lady Pilgrims as Plymouth handed the host Trojans a 25-5, 25-11, 25-23 defeat Thursday.
The Northern State Conference is on the line as Class 2A No. 5 Bremen hosts Class 3A No. 9 John Glenn, while Plymouthâ€™s players have something to prove as they travel to NorthWood, and Triton looks to keep its positive momentum rolling as it hosts Class 3A 10th-ranked Jimtown in the last week of the regular season.
CULVER â€” Leopoldo Burguete came on strong at the finish to win the individual boys championship and lead Culver Military to its fourth straight team sectional championship, while Culver Girls Academy placed six runners in the top 15 to breeze to its eighth straight title at the Culver Academies Cross Country Sectionals Tuesday.

Runyan turned in a 17:16 for 11th place, while Amor came in in 17:28 for the final individual ticket out to Saturdayâ€™s Elkhart Central Regional.
CULVER â€” With sectionals fast approaching, the Lady Cavaliers wanted to grab some momentum this week.
So far, so good.
