PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s never easy to beat a team twice, especially on the road, but NorthWood sure made it look that way.
The Panthers put up 406 total yards of offense while holding Plymouth to a mere 151, and NorthWood backed up its Week 9 defeat of the Rockies with a 49-16 rout at The Rockpile Friday.
Plymouth closes out its season at 4-7, while NorthWood (8-3) moves on to host Concord in the Class 4A Sectional 11 championship next Friday.
BREMEN â€” Bremenâ€™s football team set quite a tone Friday night.
The Class 2A No. 5 Lions scored in each of their first seven possessions and allowed visiting Manchester just 27 total yards of first-half offense on their way to a dominating 47-14 Sectional 26 semifinal win at Don Bunge Field.
The Lions, in search of their second straight sectional crown, welcome Lewis Cass, a 28-7 winner over Rochester Friday, in next weekâ€™s title bout.
CULVER â€” The Culver Cavaliers exacted revenge on West Central for an earlier season defeat in typical, grind-it-out fashion Friday night.
After West Central went up early with a 23-yard touchdown run at the 8:37 stop of the first quarter, the Cavs responded with two scores of their own from Kevin Hogan â€”Â a 3- and 2-yard run â€”Â to take a 14-8 lead and never looked back in a 24-14 win over the Trojans in a Sectional 33 semifinal at Culver.
MISHAWAKA â€” Teshon Sanders made quite a first impression on the John Glenn High football team Friday night.
Starting in the backfield for the first time this season, the 5-foot-10, 210-pound Sanders had 10 carries for 82 yards and two touchdowns, helping No. 2 Mishawaka Marian post a 22-14 win over Glenn in Class 3A Sectional 17 semifinal action at Otolski Field.
Mistakes bite Eagles
Culver Military Academy turned the ball over six times â€”Â four fumbles and a pair of interceptions â€”Â in a 35-15 Class 3A Football Sectional 17 loss to St. Joe at Oliver Field Friday.

WALKERTON â€” If their website is any indication, the proprietors of The Walk of Nightmares trail in Walkerton have more than a few scary moments planned for this Halloween weekend. And the best part? It's free.
"There's not a lot of free attractions in the area," said Jessica Beam, part of the Walk of Nightmares team. "(The staff) are all dedicated. Their sole purpose is to try to scare somebody, and you can guarantee that will happen. There's going to be something in there that will scare almost anybody."

What would you do if you were woken from sleep shortly before midnight on a dark and stormy night, by your doorbell ringing?
If you had lived your life in the small, quiet community of Wakarusa, you likely would throw on something more appropriate for visitors calling and then answer the door to assist the person that was seemingly in need of help.
