Here are some scores from Friday night's football openers. Check out Saturday's edition of the Pilot News for details.
Plymouth 56, Bremen 19; Triton 34, Caston 0; John Glenn 29, North Judson 12; CMA 36, Tippy Valley 13; LaVille 21, South Central 7.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â The Diamond Spyders may be too young to remember disco, but even they could appreciate a certain BeeGees classic Wednesday afternoon.
Staying alive is just what they did.
Plymouth Post 27 rallied back from a seven-run deficit to hand Mishawaka Post 161 an 8-7 defeat, surviving to play another day at the American Legion State Baseball Tournament at Bill Nixon Field.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth Post 27 looked to be cruising to an opening-round victory over Kokomo Post 6 in the American Legion state finals, but suffered a gut-wrenching 9-7 loss Monday night thanks to a walk-off two-run homer.
Post 27 entered the final frame holding on to a 7-5 lead as pitcher Clayton Adamson looked to record the save.
PLYMOUTH â€“ Plymouth Post 27â€™s appearance in the regional was short-lived.
On Thursday, Bristol bounced the Diamond Spyders from the tournament with a convincing 11-6 victory at Bill Nixon Field.
Post 27 had fits trying to figure out Bristol starting pitcher Jake Tucker.
Tucker allowed just three runs on five hits over eight innings as the Diamond Spyders never had more than one hit when he was on the mound.
â€śI thought we came out kind of flat and they came out and did a nice job hitting the ball,â€ť Post 27 manager Will Hostrawser said.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s a theme thatâ€™s become all too familiar for Plymouth Post 27.
The Diamond Spydersâ€™ inability to close out innings came back to haunt them in their regional opener Tuesday night, as Mishawaka Post 161 plated all 11 of its runs with two outs to hand Post 27 an 11-9 setback.
The Spyders thus slip into the loserâ€™s bracket and will play the loser of todayâ€™s game between Highland Post 180 and Bristol Post 143 Thursday night at 4 p.m.
PLYMOUTH â€” Due to the early holiday deadline, Plymouth Post 27â€™s Patriot Tournament opener with Ajax Baseball of Canada will not appear in the Pilot News.
Check out Mondayâ€™s edition of the Pilot for results from the Diamond Spydersâ€™ Friday doubleheader and beyond at the tournament.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. â€” Morgan Ucenyâ€™s fan page on Facebook was filled with messages of support Sunday evening.
â€śYouâ€™ll shake this off. Get back out there soon and do your thing!â€ť wrote one well-wisher.
The inexplicable had happened again, and fans of the Plymouth native wanted her to know they are still with her.
Sunday afternoon, with a lap-and-a-half remaining in the womenâ€™s 1,500-meter run at the U.S. Outdoor Track & Field Championships, Uceny was in contention for a national title.
And then she tripped and fell to the track at Sacramento State University.
WARSAW â€” The name of the game may be to survive and advance, but winning is just more fun.
NorthWoodâ€™s boys golf team carded a 305 for the team championship, while John Glennâ€™s Tyler Prentkowski won a two-hole playoff for the low medal at the Warsaw Boys Golf Regional Thursday at Stonehenge Golf Club.
Both Prentkowski and NorthWood head coach Brad Duerksen admit that championships werenâ€™t necessarily at the forefront of their minds headed into Thursdayâ€™s regional but rather advancement to the state finals next Tuesday in Franklin. Winning just made the experience more fun.
ARGOS â€” Â For the second consecutive season, the Chicago Fire has brought one of their youth soccer camps to Argos and for good reason.
You see the turnout in Argos is as good if not better than any of the Fireâ€™s many other summer camps around northern Illinois and northern Indiana.
This week 74 boys and girls ages 7 to 16 have descended on Argosâ€™ Community Park soccer fields.
Argos, a well-known hotbed for soccer, is the perfect place for Chicago Fire to hold its soccer camp for youth.
BLOOMINGTON â€” Sam Lacher saved his best for last. So did Hunter Schuman.
Isnâ€™t that the idea?
When you finally run your best race, or make your best throw, thereâ€™s no place better to do it than the IHSAA boys state track finals.
Bremenâ€™s Lacher broke the 49-second barrier in the 400-meter dash for the first time in his life. As a result, he claimed state runnerup honors Saturday at the Indiana University track in Bloomington.
