ROCHESTER ‚ÄĒ Success in the football season meant a slow start for Bremen in the wrestling season, but the Lions finally seemed to be taking off Friday.
Led by Abraham Hall‚Äôs championship at 285, Bremen wrestlers captured three top three finishes and salvaged another five top-seven finishes after early losses to lift the Class 2A Lions to a fifth-place team finish at the 16-team John McKee Memorial Wrestling Tournament at Rochester Friday.
NORTH JUDSON ‚ÄĒ Class 2A No. 6 North Judson got off to a slow start and led by just three points at the half, but the Bluejays used a strong second half to remain unbeaten versus LaVille.
Judson opened the third quarter on a 10-0 run and put up 37 points after the break while holding the visiting Lancers to only 12 in a 67-39 win at Judson Friday.
LaVille head coach Michael Edison said North Judson‚Äôs Kendall Hochstedler made the difference in the game the second half.
PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ The German philosopher Nietzsche may have said it best when he said, ‚ÄúWithout music, life would be an error.‚ÄĚ
MISHAWAKA ‚ÄĒ Two wins in two nights proved too much for Plymouth at Penn Thursday.
Coming off a lopsided home win over Whitko Wednesday, the Class 3A No. 8 Pilgrims suffered their first defeat of the season as the Kingsmen outlasted them in overtime, 52-42.
‚ÄúNo excuses. We knew they had gotten to rest the night before, but we were coming over here to compete. That‚Äôs all there was to it. It wasn‚Äôt an option to not show up and not compete,‚ÄĚ said Plymouth head coach Ryan Bales.
CULVER ‚ÄĒ The Lady Cavaliers overcame a slow start to defeat the North Judson Lady Jays at home Thursday night, 63-45.
Culver (6-6) scored just six points in the first quarter, while the visiting Lady Jays (7-4) put up 15, but the second quarter heated up quickly.
