ARGOS â€” The Argos Dragons and the Bremen Lions have made a habit of meeting in the boys soccer sectional final.
For the fourth straight year, the two teams have advanced to face each other, and for the fourth year it was the Dragons taking the title, this time 3-1 in an Argos Soccer Sectional final Saturday.
PLYMOUTH â€” After the late regular-season matchup between NLC rivals Plymouth and NorthWood ended in a scoreless tie, Saturdayâ€™s Plymouth Soccer Sectional championship game promised to be a dramatic one.
The title match delivered as NorthWood scored the gameâ€™s only goal on a controversial penalty kick in the 59th minute, then held on for the narrowest of 1-0 wins over the host Rockies at Kindt Soccerplex.
CULVER â€” With Warsaw in a league of its own, Saturdayâ€™s Culver Academies Cross Country Sectional was essentially a race for second place.
The Tigers easily repeated as champions in both the girls and boys races, while the host Eagles took second in the team standings, and Plymouthâ€™s girls also qualified for regional with a third-place result.
The Lady Eagles were led by Stephanie Maâ€™s 10th-place finish, while Olivia Martinez claimed 11th, Annie Shea was 14th, Mary Terhune was 16th, and Sara Brismar finished in 19th for host CGA.

LAKEVILLE â€” Last yearâ€™s girls sectional final saw Argos stun LaVille for three goals in the first six minutes and lead 5-1 before a pair of late Lancer goals narrowed the margin. This yearâ€™s semifinal match-up looked to turn the tables as the Lancers struck in the fourth minute for an early lead. The similarity ended there, however, with the Dragons eventually winning in a penalty kick shoot-out.

PLYMOUTH â€” There wasnâ€™t a lot of offense generated in Wednesdayâ€™s sectional semifinal between Plymouth and bitter Northern Lakes Conference rival Warsaw. Instead, the outcome came down to who had the better finishing touch.
Fortunately for the Rockies, their forwards were just a little better.
Plymouth held on through the second half to claim a narrow 2-1 victory over the six-time defending champion Tigers at the Plymouth Soccer Sectional in a semifinal with a championship atmosphere Wednesday at Kindt Soccerplex.
PLYMOUTH â€” Focus continues to be the word of choice around the locker room as a big win over Concord a week ago only means that this week Goshen stands in the way of an NLC title.
â€ś(Coach) Bob Garrity made a point the other night at practice â€” he told me that we should probably remind them that the only thing they are guaranteed right now is a 7-3 season,â€ť said Plymouth coach John Barron. â€śWeâ€™ve gotten a lot of kudos this week from a lot of people. We need to control what we can control, is our effort in practice.â€ť
LAKEVILLE â€” Argos defeated Glenn 4-0 in the opening game of the girls soccer sectional at Newton Park. Courtney Dunlap scored on a pass from Megan Ditmire in the seventh minute for the eventual game-winner. The Dragons possessed the ball for the majority of the half, getting eight shots on goal to one for the Falcons, but Argos couldnâ€™t find the finish and the game remained a tight 1-0 at the break.
