Lions lose Bremen Invitational championship on pks
Bremen lost 4-1 on penalty kicks as Manchester won the championship at the Bremen Memorial Soccer Invitational Saturday.
The game ended in a 2-2 tie as Bremenâs Sam Lacher and Danny Reynoso scored in the 5th and 34th minutes, respectively to give the Lions a 2-0 halftime advantage, but Manchester scored in the 66th minute and netted another goal in the final minute to knot the game up.
C.J. Thornton recorded 11 saves in goal in the loss.
The Lions reached the championship with a 5-4 win over Trinity in the opening round.
Culver resident David Harling recognizes itâs important to have a sense of humor in his line of work, which is a good thing, since there were more than a few chuckles accompanying genuine amazement at the level of prominence his Argos-based company holds in the country and even the world.
Harling heads up Ameri-Can -- a name derived from its American and Canadian connections, lest the reader had other implications in mind -- whch supplies âluxuriousâ toilet trailers to for a range of uses, from small, outdoor events to presidential inaugurations, to the Queen of Englandâs jubilee.
Culverâs town council will likely invite representatives of Florida energy company Nextera to a council meeting in the very near future, to discuss the companyâs proposed project of placing 60-plus wind turbines in the Marshall and Fulton County areas.
Discussion of the project arose when audience member Patty Stallings expressed concerns over the recently-controversial project, which have included property values in the area, views of Lake Maxinkuckee affected by the turbines, and concerns over the health of those near the project.
Culver High School graduate (class of 1967) Edward Geiselman has been making waves nationally due to his innovations in the study of truth-telling, something he's developed through his years as a psychology professor at UCLA, where he's taught for nearly 33 years.
Geiselman has taught investigative interviewing techniques to members of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, the Marines, the Los Angeles police and sheriff's departments, and several international agencies.
Due to weather the remainder of the Blueberry Festival events have been cancelled for today, Saturday September 3rd. The festival will open as usual tomorrow Sunday, September 4th with the regular scheduled events.
WARSAW â The true test of any young football team is how they start on the road.
Indeed, Plymouth had chances to go up early against both Bremen and Rochester in Weeks 1 and 2 but wasnât quite able to get off to the start it hoped for.
The Rockies had no such trouble Friday as they jumped off to an 8-0 start barely three minutes in on their way to a 22-7 first half lead at Warsaw, a fast start they rode to an eventual 29-13 Northern Lakes Conference-opening win.
BREMEN â Nate Leeper managed to keep things in good working order Friday night.
The senior quarterback passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more, helping No. 8 (Class 2-A) Bremen roll to a 55-13 victory over New Prairie in Northern State Conference football action at Don Bunge Field.
Leeperâs 6-yard strike to Ethan Pike late in the first period tied the game at 13-13 and started the Lions (3-0, 1-0 NSC) on their way to 48 unanswered points.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Leeper completed 8-of-13 passes for 160 yards and rushed the ball five times for 15 yards.
CULVER âÂ Culver Community senior Sam Hissong hauled in two of junior quarterback Collin Stevensâ four touchdown tosses Friday against Triton.
Considering the pads-popping downfield block he threw to free junior running back Matt Hurford for the Cavsâ first touchdown reception, Hissongâs own catches seemed like a fitting reward in Culverâs 33-3 Northern State Conference-opening football win at steamy Cavalier Field.
WALKERTON â Just when the Redskins thought it couldnât get any worse, Josh Anderson was given another carry, and delivered in a big way.
The Falcons senior running back had his way with the Knox defense all night, leading John Glenn to a 53-8 victory at home on Friday night. Well, he had his way with the defense for half the night, as Anderson only played one series in the second half, a 56-yard touchdown run at that.
Byrne, Barnes power CMA
Pierre Byrne ran for 322 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries, and Culver Military rebounded from a loss at NorthWood last week with a 28-14 home win over Heritage Christian Friday.
Byrne recorded touchdown carries of five and 51 yards, and his 39-yard punt return set up CMAâs first touchdown of the night at the 5:50 mark of the first quarter.
