Heartbreak at The Rockpile

October 23, 2010

PLYMOUTH — They say it is a game of inches, and Plymouth’s Rockies certainly believe that this morning.
After a valiant effort against a very talented and athletic South Bend Washington team the Rockies watched a 40-yard field goal attempt by the Panthers’ Cesar Mercado hit the cross bar, bounce in the air and fall good, ending a season of maniacal ups and downs in a 31-29 final score.

Bremen moves on with overtime triumph

October 23, 2010

BREMEN — Heroes are made in the postseason, and Bremen’s Braxston Miller became one in Friday night’s Class 2A Sectional 26 opener.
After a Whitko field goal to start overtime, Miller’s 3-yard touchdown gave Bremen a 20-14 victory to put the Lions in the second round against Fairfield, a 45-0 winner over Woodlan.
“It’s just too much, and the crowd just went wild,” Miller said of his game-winning score. “It’s just overwhelming. It’s awesome.”
Bremen coach Bob Holmes was ecstatic with how his team came through in the clutch.

Culver beats Lake Central

October 23, 2010

LAKE STATION — Culver put up 21 points in the first quarter en route to a 49-7 thrashing of Lake Station in the Cavaliers' Class A, Sectional 33 opener on the road Friday.
Michael Salary finished with two touchdowns and a game-leading 151 yards rushing, while Cole Flora scored another two touchdowns and rushed for 104 yards for the defending sectional champions.
Collin Stevens and Tucker Schultz also scored for the Cavs, who outrushed their hosts 436-139 yards.
Culver will host Whiting — which beat LaVille 42-13 Friday — next week.

Rockies moving on vs. Washington

October 21, 2010

PLYMOUTH — It’s over. That’s about all that Plymouth’s Rockies want to remember about last week, with the opening round of the playoffs looming.
“You can sum it up and just say it was frustrating,” said Plymouth coach John Barron of last week’s season ending loss to NorthWood by a 7-3 score. “It was frustrating to our kids, frustrating to our staff and I think frustrating to our fans. You shouldn’t lose a game where you only give up seven points.  But that’s a long time ago now. We’ve stopped talking about it, stopped thinking about it and gone back to work.”

Marian, St. Joe favored at Plymouth Volleyball Sectional

October 20, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Historically, Mishawaka Marian and South Bend St. Joseph’s have dominated the Plymouth Volleyball Sectional.
And although the field is generally more even this year, the two teams are favored once more, with the Lady Pilgrims following closely behind at the Class 3A Sectional 17 this week at The Rock.

Paced by Neer's 17:53, the Lady Eagles secured three top-10 spots en route to the repeat team title and a ticket out to the New Prairie Semistate next Saturday. Kaye Sitterly finished fifth, and Kacie Hermanson was seventh for CGA, while Eden Brackenbury finished 21st, and Kayla-Colleen Miracle was 22nd.

CGA beats Plymouth for 3rd straight sectional title

October 18, 2010

ARGOS — Led by tourney MVP Kylee Shipley, the Lady Eagles whitewashed Plymouth 3-0 to claim their third straight Argos Girls Soccer Sectional championship Saturday at Eugene Snyder Field.
"It's always good, but I think with this third one we've kind of established a standard now that's expected," said Culver Girls Academy head soccer coach Nathaniel King. "Now we can focus on a bigger challenge at regional. It's a big confidence boost going into regional."

Cavs finish season on high note

October 16, 2010

CULVER — Culver Community football head coach Andy Thomas said his team treated Friday’s regular-season finale with LaVille as a playoff game.
Given the results, the defending sectional champion Cavs look poised to make a strong run at a repeat.
Senior running back Mike Salary danced his way to 213 yards in 16 carries, scored twice, and even tossed a touchdown pass for good measure in the Cavs’ 35-6 Senior Night win over Northern State Conference rival LaVille.

Bremen spoils Falcons’ NSC bid

October 16, 2010

WALKERTON— What’s gotten into the Lions?
First No. 2 Jimtown and now No. 8 John Glenn.
Bremen responded time and again in a nip-tuck Northern State Conference game at Glenn Friday, earning its second straight victory over a ranked Class 3A squad and keeping a four-game win streak alive while spoiling Senior Night and the Falcons’ bid for their first NSC title in 30 years.

Rockies come up short

October 16, 2010

PLYMOUTH — For Plymouth’s Rockies it was déjà vu all over again in the fourth quarter.
Twice, the Rockies (6-3) had opportunities to score what could have been a game-winning touchdown in the game’s final five minutes. Twice an outstanding NorthWood defensive effort on fourth down turned Plymouth away empty handed and enabled the Panthers (4-5) to take home a 7-3 NLC win.
