Rockies like Ike in win over Zebras

August 27, 2011

PLYMOUTH — The young Rockies did some growing up Friday night.
After failing to convert on a pair of fourth-down conversions from the Rochester 2-yard line in the game’s opening 13 minutes and giving up a pair of big play touchdowns in the second and third frames, Plymouth found itself down 13-0 early in the second half.
But the Rockies finished five of their next six drives and surrendered just one more Rochester score to claim a 34-20 come-from-behind win over the visiting Zebras at The Rockpile.

2nd half sinks Trojans

August 27, 2011

The second half turned into an all-out free fall on both sides of the ball.
Trailing by six at halftime, visiting Northfield held Triton to just 41 yards of total offense after the intermission and scored during four of its five second-half possessions to pull away from the Trojans, 43-20.

Falcons’ frustrations continue against Jimtown

August 27, 2011

WALKERTON — An opportunity to end over two decades of frustration was there for the taking Friday for the John Glenn High football team.
Unfortunately, Brody Olson stepped in to add to the Falcons’ misery.
Olson’s grab of a tipped pass good for 30 yards midway through the fourth quarter, helped Jimtown on its way to the winning touchdown and a thrilling 14-13 victory over Glenn in Northern State Conference action at Falcon Field.

Turnovers doom CMA against NorthWood

August 27, 2011

NAPPANEE — According to the statistics, CMA should have won the game against the NorthWood Panthers Friday night, as the Eagles outgained NorthWood 295 yards to 229 and had 15 first downs to the Panthers’ nine, but five CMA turnovers were the difference as the Panthers downed CMA 27-18 at Andrews Field in Nappanee.

Plymouth overpowers Culver in 3

August 26, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Sometimes you’re just overmatched.
Such was the case for Culver Thursday as it suffered a lopsided 25-8, 25-5, 25-15 loss against a bigger, stronger Plymouth squad on the Lady Pilgrims’ home floor at The Rock.
“Plymouth’s a good team,” said Culver head volleyball coach Amanda Minix. “We’ve had some pretty light teams here in the first part of the year, and I told them coming into night ‘They play hard, they serve hard, they can place serve it,’ and we just kind of fell apart.”

Uceny ready as track worlds open Saturday

August 26, 2011

Compared to the next three miles she has to travel, getting to South Korea was a breeze for Plymouth native Morgan Uceny.
Because the next three miles — to be run one at a time — are for all the marbles.
Uceny, a 2003 Plymouth High School graduate, begins her quest to win a gold medal in the women’s 1500-meter run Saturday when preliminary heats kick off the IAAF World Track & Field Championships in Daegu, Korea.
Is she nervous? You betcha.
But is she ready? Oh, yeah.

Rockies drop conference opener to talented Tigers

August 26, 2011

WARSAW —  On the road against defending semistate champion Warsaw, Plymouth was already up against a wall.
When a key player was sidelined with an injury in the second half, things went from bad to worse.
With his team already trailing 2-0, Plymouth defensive player Jordan Popi was forced to leave the game with a broken wrist early in the second half, and the Tigers netted four goals between the 47th and 53rd minutes to put the game out of reach and hand the Rockies an eventual 7-0 Northern Lakes Conference-opening loss at Warsaw Thursday.

Argos wins NISC opener at Trinity

August 26, 2011

MISHAWAKA — The Argos girls soccer team opened Northern Indiana Soccer Conference play with a 3-1 road win at Trinity Thursday.
In a shocking start, Jami Patterson and Sammie Hopkins wall-passed the opening kick-off right down the field with Hopkins striking for a goal with 15 seconds elapsed on the clock. It would be hard to imagine a better start for the Dragons, and the visitors continued their solid play, pressing the Titans for the better part of the opening frame.

Plymouth stressing tradition while Bremen, Glenn look to build in Week 2

August 25, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Following last week’s historic loss to Bremen, the Rockies are taking some history lessons this week.
The defending Class 2A Sectional 26-champion Lions handed Class 4A Plymouth a 21-8 defeat in last Friday’s opener, the first such win for the Lions since 1988, and the experience left a sour taste in the Rockies’ mouths. The team is stressing tradition this Friday as it plays host to another longstanding nonconference rival in Rochester, and the stakes are a fourth-straight Hickory Stick traveling trophy.
