PLYMOUTH â Close, but no cigar.
The Lady Pilgrims reached the championship at their home Class 3A Plymouth Sectional with a four-game win over Culver Girls Academy but fell short of the crown with a loss in another four-gamer against South Bend St. Josephâs Saturday.
ST. JOSEPHâS 3, PLYMOUTH 1 (25-22, 19-25, 25-20, 25-23)
St. Joe unseated five-time defending champion Mishawaka Marian in the morning, then held off a surging Plymouth squad for the title in four back-and-forth sets in the sectional finale at The Rock, 25-22, 19-25, 25-20, 25-23.
Plymouthâs Jordan Knapp recorded 7.5 tackles, three interceptions, 15 rushing yards, three PATs and a touchdown in Plymouthâs sectional win at Angola Friday.
Culver Communityâs Aspen Kitchell recorded 15 kills and 16 assists to help lead her team to a Class A Sectional championship over South Central Saturday.
LAKEVILLE â The first time the two teams played, Femi Hollinger-Janzen wasnât as much of an issue. At Saturdayâs LaVille Boys Soccer Semistate, he took control.
The Indiana University recruit and Bethany Christian senior forward notched four goals within the first 22 minutes to give his team a 5-0 lead, then watched from the sidelines as Class A No. 3 Bethany coasted to an 8-0 semifinal win over Argos at Newton Park.
The Bruins ultimately lost the semistate championship to Fort Wayne Canterbury.
ARGOS â Same score, different game.
No. 5-ranked Mishawaka Marian beat No. 14 Argos 3-1 in the semifinal on the way to the championship at the Argos Girls Soccer Semistate Saturday before winning the tournament with a 2-1 overtime victory over No. 2-rated West Lafayette.
WALKERTON âÂ The painful memories of last week's tough loss to Bremen quickly disappeared Friday night for the John Glenn High football team.
Josh Anderson ran the opening kickoff back 41 yards and then proceeded to ramble 40 more for the first of his four touchdowns, allowing Glenn to cruise to a 51-6 victory over Hammond Gavit in Class 3-A Sectional 17 opening round action at a frigid Falcon Field.
ANGOLA â Throughout the regular season, the Plymouth football team struggled under adversity.
In Fridayâs sectional contest at Angola, the Rockies responded when it mattered most.
Plymouth battled back from a 14-0 deficit in the first quarter and capitalized with scores on each of eight Angola turnovers on its way to a 49-21 victory in a wild Class 4A Sectional 11 opener.
