1st half dooms Rockies

October 5, 2010

ELKHART — Plymouth played even with Concord after the break, but the Minutemen had already put the game away in the first half.
The Rockies outrushed the Minutemen 257 to 220 yards and tallied 15 first downs to Concord’s 19, but No. 8-rated Plymouth finished just one drive, while the third-ranked Minute-men scored points on all but two possessions for a 27-6 Northern Lakes Conference victory in a match-up of state-ranked teams Friday at Concord.
“You beat their offense with our offense, if our offense stays on the field,” said Plymouth head coach John Barron. “But don’t get me wrong, we got beat by a better team tonight. They’ve got some very good football players and Tim (Dawson) has done a great job, and they’re in the driver’s seat to win the conference championship. You never know. Maybe we’ll get lucky and play them again.”
Plymouth recorded just 51 offensive yards in the first half, while Concord notched 232 en route to a 20-0 halftime lead.
