SEYMOUR â€” The LaVille high school football game at Trinity Lutheran has been moved forward from 7 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The Lancers are looking for their second win of the series after a 56-14 win at home last year, as well as their second win of the season following last week's 31-0 rout of South Central.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was rain shortened, but it will count as a win. The IHSAA will decide the score.
With constant lightening in the area Plymouth and Rochester were unable to continue their Friday night game at Plymouth. After a Plymouth 29-yard touchdown run by Michael Hartman with 9:24 to play in the third quarter, officials delayed the game for lightening the first time with the Rockies in front 35-0.
With the decision not to resume the game it will be up to the IHSAA to decide if that will remain the final or whether it will be a 2-0 forfeit decision.

LAKEVILLE â€”Â Most observers of the ongoing Northern State Conference break-up considered LaVilleâ€™s departure from the conference pretty much a done deal. On Friday, with the deadline to quit or stay imminent, LaVille AD Will Hostrawser made the announcement that many were already expecting.
ARGOS â€” A night thatÂ started out as a celebration of 50 years of Argos soccer, with many alumni in attendance including members of that original team, was dampened by lightning in the area Friday night. Â
BOURBON â€”Â Triton football head coach John Johns made one thing perfectly clear following his teamâ€™s loss Friday â€” heâ€™s darn proud of his charges.
While the crafty Northfield offense rolled up 287 rushing yards en route to a 27-6 victory over host Triton, the small-in-numbers, big-in-effort Trojans earned plenty of praise from their leader.
â€śWe dressed 22 guys and played 16,â€ť Johns said. â€śWe can last for awhile, but I wouldnâ€™t trade these guys for any other group of guys. I love each and every one of them.
WALKERTON â€” The much-anticipated Northern State Conference-opener between first-year head coach Dave Sharpe and his John Glenn Falcons against Sharpeâ€™s alma mater Jimtown started not with a bang but with a whimper Friday night.
It did end with a bang, however. A thunderclap to be exact.
AKRON â€” Bremenâ€™s defense held Tippecanoe Valley to 206 total offensive yards and a single score, the Lions got 153 rushing yards from Jon Stoller and 105 passing yards and a rushing touchdown from quarterback Kai Slough, and Bremen broke into the win column with a 22-7 win on the road Friday night.
Ryan Zellmer put Bremen on the board at the 7:57 mark of the second quarter on a one-yard touchdown run, Kai Slough punched in another score from a yard out with just 37 seconds remaining in the first half, and Bremen took a 12-0 lead into halftime.
