WALKERTON â€” John Glennâ€™s football team dodged a number of first-half bullets against North Judson-San Pierre Friday.
In the second half, though, the host Falcons felt the full force of the Bluejaysâ€™ assault on both sides of the line.
Starting with Tim Stasiekâ€™s 62-yard interception return of a deflected throw in the first possession of the second half and accelerated by junior quarterback Caston Sanchezâ€™s 91-yard touchdown pass to Eric Beckman on third and long, North Judson fired off 28 third-frame points and ran away with a 41-15 season-opening win over the Falcons.

FULTON â€” Triton football coach Rodney Younis wanted a quick start from his young team.
He got that on offense, but his defensive unit spent much of the its season opener trying to catch up with Caston, and the Comets pulled out the victory 28-20 at the Comet Crater.
â€śCaston is a solid, physical team,â€ť Younis said. â€śWe just couldnâ€™t slow down their offense in the first half. We made some adjustments at halftime and things got better, but we were behind all night.â€ť

PLYMOUTH â€” It started with a simple New Yearâ€™s resolution to get back into shape. But John Popiâ€™s foray into the world of mixed martial arts has become something much bigger.
Popi will get a chance at a 185-pound title against Cody Groves at the Michiana Fight Leagueâ€™s MFL 26 event Saturday at Coveleski Stadium in South Bend.
ARGOS â€” Plymouth head coach Chuck DeWitt wanted to use Thursday nightâ€™s opener at Argos as a forecast for the 2012 season.
The signs looked good.
Plymouthâ€™s girls soccer team used its speed to outshoot the host Lady Dragons 17-7, Allie Wright created three goals for the Rockies â€” an unassisted strike to put the visitors on the board just 10 seconds in and two own-goals â€” and Plymouth claimed a 4-0 shutout of area rival Argos on the road.
â€śIt was our opener, and we really didnâ€™t know what kind of team we had,â€ť said DeWitt. â€śThis was a game to show us where we needed to play this season.â€ť
