PLYMOUTH â€” It was nearly 24 hours in the making but the sun smiled on Plymouthâ€™s Rockies on Saturday afternoon as they took NLC win number one of the new season with a 41-7 victory over Warsaw.
For the second week in a row the weather played havoc with the football schedule around the state and the game was suspended from Friday night with the Rockies holding a 7-3 lead. Resuming on Saturday afternoon Plymouth could do little wrong.

PLYMOUTH â€“ Morgan Uceny was looking for some blueberry donuts. Wasnâ€™t everybody?
But on her way to Centennial Park, Plymouthâ€™s native Olympian took a quick detour down Michigan Street.
It was so quick, in fact, that Uceny ended up winning Mondayâ€™s Blueberry Stomp 5,000-meter run.
Thousands of spectators, who were awaiting the start of the Blueberry Festival parade, did a double-take. Then they roared as Uceny â€“ a finalist in the womenâ€™s 1,500 meter run during the 2012 Olympics -- surged the last mile of the course.
Bremen 35, Tippy Valley 19; CMA 20, Indianapolis Marshall 6 (game called at half); LaVille 14, Central Noble 0; Jimtown 7, John Glenn 6; Plymouth 38, Rochester 35.
