GOSHEN â€” 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.
BREMEN â€” 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.
â€śFirst and foremost I think it was a tremendous win for our kids and our community and everybody else,â€ť said Bremen head football coach Bob Holmes. â€śThis is a great community, and theyâ€™ve backed us the entire season. Itâ€™s just a great win for a great community.â€ť

BOURBON â€” The Triton School Board held a special session Thursday to allow the public to receive information on two proposed projects for the school corporation as well as hear how the funding for the projects has been established.
However, only one patron attended the entire meeting and only one other attended for a few minutes.
Area residents will have a second opportunity to hear the particulars of the projects and funding at the regularly scheduled school board meeting Monday, Oct. 11.
The majority of the projects concern heating and cooling unit replacements along with controls.
LAKEVILLE â€” The LaVille Boys Soccer Sectional first round hinged upon recovery and survival at Newton Park Thursday.
NorthWood, led by Ryan Lincolnâ€™s hat trick, recovered from a 3-1 halftime deficit to eliminate Bremen 4-3, while defending sectional champion LaVille survived a late push from John Glenn to escape the nightcap with a 2-1 victory.
The Lancers and Panthers meet in Saturdayâ€™s title round at 7 p.m. at Newton Park.
ARGOS â€” It was a bad night for Marshall County teams at the Argos Boys Soccer Sectional.
First, defending sectional champ Warsaw coasted past the host Dragons for a 5-0 victory, and then an early mistake wound up costing the Plymouth Rockies their bid at a championship as they fell to Manchester 1-0.
BOURBON â€” It is nice to face a lesser foe on senior night. The Triton volleyball team was not soÂ fortunate Thursday evening.
Jimtown put a damper on the festivities honoring Tritonâ€™s eight seniors with a 25-15, 25-18, 25-17 win, its 18th of the season.
â€śIâ€™m really proud of the way the girls played tonight,â€ť Triton coach Terrin Meister said. â€śWe did do some great things, but we just have to get over that hump.â€ť
Jimtown (18-6, 4-2 Northern State Conference) knew it had to overcome a motivated opponent.
