Plymouth nips New Prairie in regular-season closer
On Tuesday night, Plymouth hosted New Prairie in a battle of one-loss squads. The Rockies came out on top 29-25 in a thriller at The Rock.
Eric Humphery and Corey Wallace both recorded pinfall wins, and Triston Rodriguez earned a major decision at 132.
Other winners for Plymouth were Osman Solis, Cody Allmon, Kam Markovich, Bodie Neidig, Drew Dodson by DQ, and Aaron Houin by a narrow 3-2 decision in extra time.
LAKEVILLE â€” Fifteen proved to be something of a magic number for LaVilleâ€™s basketball teams Tuesday.
The Lancersâ€™ girls and boys squads surrendered a mere 15 points apiece in the second half and collected a pair of double-digit victories over Bremen in the TCU Bi-County Tournament opening round at LaVilleâ€™s Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
In the nightcap, junior guard Blake Berger erupted for a game-high 26 points, and senior guard Cameron Gurtner added 16 points to lead the Lancers to a 56-38 win over the Lions.
WALKERTON â€” Halftime adjustments made all the difference in a pair of thrillers between John Glenn and Culver in their first-round TCU Bi-County match-ups Tuesday night at The Aerie.
The Lady Cavaliersâ€™ switch to a man defense in the second half allowed them to rally to a narrow 45-44 win, while in the nightcap, the Falcons sped up the tempo after the break to grab a last-second 51-49 victory over the Cavs.
In the first half, Glenn discovered it didnâ€™t match up very well with Trent Elliott, Jacoda Anderson and the rest of the Cavs lineup in the halfcourt.
ARGOS â€” The Argos Dragons and the Oregon-Davis Bobcats split in the opening round matchup of the Bi-County Tournament. The Lady Bobcats took out the Lady Dragons on their home floor with a final score of 84-37 and advance to the second round. The Argos boys came away with a 35-32 win over the Bobcats in a nail biter.
NEW CARLISLE â€“ Tritonâ€™s boys and girls basketball teams earned a sweep over New Prairie on the road in New Carlisle Tuesday night.
The girls rallied with a 22-point fourth quarter to hand the Lady Cougars a 55-49 defeat, while the Trojans reprised an earlier loss to the Cougars with a convincing 57-40 victory.
OK. So, where was that the first time?
Thatâ€™s what Jason Groves would like to know.
