CULVER â The Eagles ended John Glennâs shutout streak, but it was too little, too late as the Falcons claimed a 49-12 victory at Culver Academies Friday.
Glenn scored two touchdowns in all but the fourth quarter, and the Falcons defensive unit held CMA to just 45 total net offensive yards in the first half, shutting out the home team for three quarters â its sixth such performance in six games this year âÂ before a Juwan Brescacin touchdown catch and a Pierre Byrne 5-yard run in the fourth quarter concluded a streak of 15 scoreless quarters by Glenn opponents.
PLYMOUTH â Itâs been a while â two years to be exact.
Wawaseeâs Warriors put an end to a remarkable streak for Plymouthâs Rockies Friday night with a 27-17 win at Plymouth. The last team to beat Plymouth in a regular-season game was NorthWood in the final game of the 2007 season. The last time the Rockies lost at home was to Rochester, in the second game of that same season.
It appeared that maybe the Rockies would be on their way to a third straight thrilling come-from-behind win, with Brock Smith playing Superman, but it was not to be.
BREMEN âÂ After winning the round robin of the Northern State Conference race, Bremen entered the NSC Tournament as the favorites Thursday.
The Lions won at two of three singles courts at the conference opener, and their two doubles teams earned a bye with the No. 1 seed at their positions to keep Bremen the favorite heading into Saturdayâs tourney finals, but head coach Andrew Rohde isnât taking anything for granted.
CULVER â Culver Community High School Head Coach Andy Thomas has been named the Colts/NFL Coach of the Week, a program presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
Thomas was selected after he led his Cavaliers to a 24-20 win over Bremen High School play Friday night. Culver is off to their 5-0 start in school history.
The 2010 season marks the eleventh year the Indianapolis Colts will be recognizing outstanding Indiana High School football coaches through the Colts/NFL Coach of the Week program, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
PLYMOUTH âÂ If you blinked you probably missed a good chunk of Plymouthâs volleyball match against visiting Bremen Wednesday.
Boosted by a lightning-fast start, the Pilgrims needed just 53 minutes to dispatch Bremen 25-4, 25-12, 25-18 in an intra-county squabble at The Rock.
Plymouth packed a powerful punch at the net and blanketed its half of the court while breezing through the first two games.
KENDALLVILLE â Jack Kinney knows his teamâs odds at the East Noble regional are a long shot.
With the kinds of teams populating the field at Cobblestone Saturday âÂ including Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association top 20-rated East Noble and DeKalb as well as undefeated Northern Lakes Conference and Warsaw Sectional champ Wawasee â grabbing one of the top three team standings to qualify for the state meet is going to be an uphill climb. So the Lady Pilgrims arenât sweating it. Theyâre keeping things breezy and come tourney time, theyâll see if they can shake things up.
LAKEVILLE â As the second half of the season gets under way Friday, area teams are looking to pick up some steam heading into postseason play.
The Bremen Lions (3-4, 1-2 NSC) have taken some lumps this season, including last Fridayâs disappointing 23-20 Homecoming loss to Northern State Conference foe Culver. Thatâs left them on the wrong side of .500, and theyâre hoping to get back to winning form at LaVille this week.
âWe honestly feel weâre probably six or seven plays away from being 4-1, and thatâs a tough spot to be at 2-3,â said Bremen head coach Bob Holmes.
LAKEVILLE âÂ LaVille recorded 22 shots on goal to just three by Culver, and the surging Lancers shut out the slumping Cavaliers 5-0 at Newton Park Tuesday.
It was LaVilleâs sixth straight victory, and head coach Kevin Christy said his Lancers seem to be peaking at the right time heading into the home stretch of the season.
âThe last time we played Culver at the Blueberry Festival I think the score was 4-2,â he said. âWeâve definitely improved since then."
PLYMOUTH â Losing their two main offensive weapons on nearly back to back plays didnât seem to faze Plymouthâs Rockies in taking a win a week ago over Elkhart Memorial.
After some initial shock losing Brock Smith and Houston Hodges to injury, the Rockies regrouped behind sophomore quarterback Ike Kastner and running back Sam Stevens.
WARSAW â Heading into the Warsaw Girls Golf Sectional, the Lady Pilgrims knew all they needed to do was hit their averages to make the cut out.
They werenât quite up to that task, but Plymouth still survived to play another day, beating out Culver Girls Academy for third place behind winner Wawasee and host Warsaw at Stonehenge golf Club.
