CULVER âÂ Culver Military Academy snapped Class A No. 1 Lafayette Central Catholicâs 48-game football winning streak with a 14-12 victory at Oliver Field Friday.
âOur boys showed tremendous resiliency and resolve tonight. We had our backs against the wall again, but our defense rose to the challenge,â CMA head coach Andy Dorrel said. âIâm just very proud of our coaching staff and our kids, and the opportunity to win a game like this is very special in high school football.â
MIDDLEBURY âÂ Ike Kastner is back, and the Rockies are happy to have him.
The third-year senior signal caller returned from a three-game suspension Friday, and he ran Plymouthâs offense like a player with something to prove, rattling off three rushing touchdowns and a two-point conversion en route to a game-high 220 rushing yards and guiding the Rockies to a 34-0 Northern Lakes Conference rout of the Raiders on the road at Northridge.
BOURBON âÂ Bremen football head coach Bob Holmes downgraded his victorious squadâs emotional response from âhappyâ to âcontentâ Friday night.
Considering the Lionsâ three turnovers inside the Triton 10 and a fourth just outside the Triton 20 as well as a fourth-quarter roughing-the-kicker penalty, âcontentâ sounds just about right for the Lionsâ 7-0 Northern State Conference win at Triton.
âWeâre happy to get out of here with a win,â Holmes said. âWe played a sloppy game, but we exited with a âW.â I shouldnât say weâre happy, weâre content.â
WALKERTON â Lightning delayed the start of Friday's high school football game at John Glenn. In hindsight, it may have just been a prelude of things to come.
Derek Hiler bolted for a career-high 167 yards and three touchdowns as the Falcons stormed past LaVille, 37-6.
Zach Combs rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown of his own, and Glenn evened its season record at 2-2.
Considering the way this fallâs campaign began, no wonder the Falcons were in a mood to celebrate afterwards.
CULVER â It was a tough loss for the Culver Cavaliers as they were handed their first Northern State Conference defeat at the hands of the New Prairie Cougars, 54-6 at home Friday night.
Culver was able to keep it to a 7-0 game in the first quarter on a quarterback keeper by Matthew Smith, but after that Cavaliers coach Andy Thomas says the speed and intensity of the Cougars took over.
PLYMOUTH â Sherrie Martin, Marshall County Blueberry Festival Coordinator, recently announced this yearâs parade winners.

The theme for the parade this year was âA World of Possibilities.â
PLYMOUTH â This spring, local soldiers from the Plymouth National Guard 301st MP unit will be coming home from a deployment that began in January 2012.
Angela Drake, wife of Plymouth resident Sergeant Scott Drake, is heading up an effort to throw a âthank youâ party for the soldiers in March.
âWe donât know exactly when they are coming home, but they will all be home by the time we have the party,â said Drake.
Since Drake is a busy mom with her two sons Colton, 2, and Kamdon, 5 months, she is enlisting help.
