Pilgrims, Eagles, Trojans advance at CMA CC Sectional

October 13, 2010

CULVER – Culver Academies, Plymouth, and Triton cross country coaches each think their runners are capable of quicker times.
Thanks to their respective squads’ performances at the Culver Academies Cross Country Sectional Tuesday, those skippers can put those hypotheses to the test.
The Eagles pulled off their third consecutive boys-girls title sweep – the boys by a scant two points – while Plymouth and Triton also transferred both boys and girls clubs to Saturday’s regional meet, also at Culver.

Plymouth beats Culver, 3-1 at Argos tourney

October 13, 2010

Plymouth missed a penalty kick less than 3 minutes in and it nearly came back to haunt the Rockies.
Up 2-0 after goals by Kendra Reininga — her first of the season and Plymouth's first Tuesday in the 20th minute — and Krista Vanlue, Culver striker Whitney Sanders beat out a pair of Plymouth defenders for a solo goal in the 48th minute to cut the score to 2-1.

Argos beats Bremen at home sectional

October 13, 2010

ARGOS — Argos started finishing its shots, while Bremen suddenly struggled to do the same, and Plymouth flooded the box and held off Culver's Whitney Sanders as the Lady Dragons and the Rockies both advanced to set up a classic rivalry match-up at the Argos Girls Soccer Sectional Thursday.
After a number of good runs, Jami Patterson broke through for her eighth goal of the season on a Samantha Hopkins cross through the box with under 2 minutes remaining in the first half to give the Dragons a 1-0 halftime lead and the momentum going into the second half.

Lancers beat Rochester 3-0 as Argos tourney opens

October 12, 2010

ARGOS — Despite a lackluster first half, the Lancers still entered the break in their girls soccer sectional opener against Rochester with a 1-0 lead.
In the second half, they picked up the pace, scoring two more goals while recording six shots on goal for a 3-0 win over the Zebras in the Argos Girls Soccer Sectional Monday.
“I’m happy with the second half,” said LaVille head girls soccer coach Steve Hodge. “First half I thought we walked too much, which is unacceptable to me. They know that, and they picked it up. They did the job. Three-nil is fine. I have no problem with that.”

Cross country sectionals begin today

October 12, 2010

CULVER — As the 2010 Cross Country State Tournament gets underway today, Plymouth is looking to build on last year’s success.
At the Culver Academies Sectional, Plymouth’s girls hope to build on last year’s fourth-place regional-berth finish and unseat defending champion and host Culver Girls Academy.
While the Lady Eagles retain 2009 sectional and regional champion Waverly Neer from last season’s campaign as well as fellow senior Kaye Sitterly, three of last year’s top five have since moved on.

Panthers reclaim sectional title from Lancers

October 11, 2010

LAKEVILLE — The Panthers needed just one goal Saturday to reclaim their title.
Eduardo Salinas scored a clean-up goal less than seven minutes in, and the NorthWood defense made the lone strike stand up as the Panthers unseated last year’s champion LaVille 1-0 in the LaVille Boys Soccer Sectional championship game to restore themselves as sectional titleholders Saturday at Newton Park.

Falcons power past Cavs in 2nd half

October 9, 2010

WALKERTON — Happy Homecoming, John Glenn.
After a nip-tuck first half, the Falcons took over the momentum just seconds before halftime and positively dominated the second half, beating Class A No. 9 Culver by a safe 35-14 margin. Meanwhile down the road, Bremen gave Glenn a little help in its hopes to claim its first Northern State Conference title in nearly 30 years with a 25-14 win over visiting Jimtown to bring the Falcons even with the Jimmies at 6-1 in the NSC standings.

Knox defense takes control at Triton

October 9, 2010

BOURBON — Knox linebacker Jordan Beem’s 50-yard interception return with 5.4 seconds left in the game at Triton somehow felt appropriate.
Not that Beem’s touchdown-scoring tightrope walk down the sideline affected the outcome in any way, but it certainly placed an exclamation mark on the Redskins’ superlative defensive effort.
Knox forced six turnovers — three picks and three fumble recoveries — piled up six tackles for a loss, and held the Trojans to 157 yards of total offense in a 27-0 Northern State Conference football win Friday.

Rockies back on track in win over Goshen

October 9, 2010

GOSHEN — After two losses, the Plymouth Rockies dominated Goshen on the road Friday night.
The Rockies outrushed the Redskins 330-193 yards, Houston Hodges got involved in the running game and threw two touchdown passes, and Plymouth used a big second quarter to catapult to a 41-20 Northern Lakes Conference win.
It was the largest margin of defeat for Goshen so far this year.

Like old days: Lions take down Jimtown

October 9, 2010

BREMEN — Headed into their game against Class 3A No. 2 Jimtown, the Lions were considered the easy underdogs.
But Bremen pulled off the impossible Friday, snapping a 29-game Northern State Conference win streak stretching back to 2006 with a convincing 25-14 victory over the Jimmies in front of a home crowd at Don Bunge Field.
“First and foremost I think it was a tremendous win for our kids and our community and everybody else,” said Bremen head football coach Bob Holmes. “This is a great community, and they’ve backed us the entire season. It’s just a great win for a great community.”
