September 8, 2012

The third-year senior signal caller returned from a three-game suspension Friday, and he ran Plymouth’s 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.

Lions ‘content’ with win at Triton

September 8, 2012

BOURBON — Bremen football head coach Bob Holmes downgraded his victorious squad’s emotional response from “happy” to “content” Friday night.
Considering the Lions’ three turnovers inside the Triton 10 and a fourth just outside the Triton 20 as well as a fourth-quarter roughing-the-kicker penalty, “content” sounds just about right for the Lions’ 7-0 Northern State Conference win at Triton.
“We’re happy to get out of here with a win,” Holmes said. “We played a sloppy game, but we exited with a ‘W.’ I shouldn’t say we’re happy, we’re content.”

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 fall’s campaign began, no wonder the Falcons were in a mood to celebrate afterwards.
