Rockies run wild at Warsaw

September 3, 2011

WARSAW — The true test of any young football team is how they start on the road.
Indeed, Plymouth had chances to go up early against both Bremen and Rochester in Weeks 1 and 2 but wasn’t quite able to get off to the start it hoped for.
The Rockies had no such trouble Friday as they jumped off to an 8-0 start barely three minutes in on their way to a 22-7 first half lead at Warsaw, a fast start they rode to an eventual 29-13 Northern Lakes Conference-opening win.

Lions erupt with 48 unanswered in NSC opener

September 3, 2011

BREMEN — Nate Leeper managed to keep things in good working order Friday night.
The senior quarterback passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more, helping No. 8 (Class 2-A) Bremen roll to a 55-13 victory over New Prairie in Northern State Conference football action at Don Bunge Field.
Leeper’s 6-yard strike to Ethan Pike late in the first period tied the game at 13-13 and started the Lions (3-0, 1-0 NSC) on their way to 48 unanswered points.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Leeper completed 8-of-13 passes for 160 yards and rushed the ball five times for 15 yards.

Cavs drop Triton in NSC opener

September 3, 2011

CULVER — Culver Community senior Sam Hissong hauled in two of junior quarterback Collin Stevens’ four touchdown tosses Friday against Triton.
Considering the pads-popping downfield block he threw to free junior running back Matt Hurford for the Cavs’ first touchdown reception, Hissong’s own catches seemed like a fitting reward in Culver’s 33-3 Northern State Conference-opening football win at steamy Cavalier Field.

Anderson, Falcons soar to victory over Redskins

September 3, 2011

WALKERTON — Just when the Redskins thought it couldn’t get any worse, Josh Anderson was given another carry, and delivered in a big way.
The Falcons senior running back had his way with the Knox defense all night, leading John Glenn to a 53-8 victory at home on Friday night. Well, he had his way with the defense for half the night, as Anderson only played one series in the second half, a 56-yard touchdown run at that.

September 2, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth Head Volleyball Coach Doug West believes his team is turning a corner.
Thursday’s Northern Lakes Conference opener bore him out.
The Lady Pilgrims earned a convincing 25-17, 25-16, 25-18 victory over visiting Wawasee, running their win streak to three matches and opening NLC play at 1-0 at The Rock.

Rockies drop NLC contest to Goshen

September 2, 2011

PLYMOUTH — An unwanted theme has been developing for the Rockies so far this season.
They play solidly for most of a game but wind up giving up goals in spurts during short breakdowns that ultimately cost them the game.
Such was the case Thursday as Plymouth lost a 2-0 Northern Lakes Conference decision to visiting Goshen on the Rockies’ home pitch at Kindt Soccerplex.

Fall robs Uceny of chance to win world championship

September 2, 2011

It’s not Morgan Uceny’s loss in her world championship race that had folks around the Plymouth area all upset Thursday morning.
It’s knowing that she never got a chance to win.
Uceny, a 2003 Plymouth High School graduate, became entangled with another runner and fell to the ground with 1½ laps remaining in the women’s 1500-meter final at the IAAF World Track & Field Championships in Daegu, South Korea.
She got up and eventually finished a distant 10th, jogging across the finish line.
