Pilgrims keeping it light for regional

September 23, 2010

KENDALLVILLE — Jack Kinney knows his team’s odds at the East Noble regional are a long shot.
With the kinds of teams populating the field at Cobblestone Saturday — 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 — 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 aren’t sweating it. They’re keeping things breezy and come tourney time, they’ll see if they can shake things up.

Area football teams enter second half of season

September 23, 2010

LAKEVILLE — 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 Friday’s disappointing 23-20 Homecoming loss to Northern State Conference foe Culver. That’s left them on the wrong side of .500, and they’re hoping to get back to winning form at LaVille this week.
“We honestly feel we’re probably six or seven plays away from being 4-1, and that’s a tough spot to be at 2-3,” said Bremen head coach Bob Holmes.

Lancers shut out Culver 5-0

September 22, 2010

LAKEVILLE — 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 LaVille’s 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.
“The last time we played Culver at the Blueberry Festival I think the score was 4-2,” he said. “We’ve definitely improved since then."

Young Rockies developing as Plymouth hosts Wawasee

September 22, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Losing their two main offensive weapons on nearly back to back plays didn’t seem to faze Plymouth’s 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.

Pilgrims earn 10th straight regional berth

September 20, 2010

WARSAW — 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 weren’t 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.

Same old same old for Falcons

September 18, 2010

WALKERTON — John Glenn’s football team punched the replay button...again.
For the third consecutive week the Falcons’ defense pitched a shutout and the offense rode a stellar effort from junior running back Josh Anderson, this time to a 49-0 Northern State Conference victory over visiting Triton Friday.
Glenn, which blanked Knox and LaVille over the last two weeks, benefited from five Triton turnovers — four fumbles and an interception — converting those miscues into 28 points.

Rockies pull out homecoming win over Memorial

September 18, 2010

PLYMOUTH — It will likely go down in recent Plymouth Rockies football lore as “the drive.”
It was a thing of beauty to football aficionados — 10 minutes and 16 seconds covering 60 yards for the winning score with just :13 left in the football game. It was 20 plays long. It saw three fourth down conversions and 15 carries by a sophomore — in the game because of injury. It saw another sophomore, also in the game because of injury, make a play that could be the beginning of an illustrious high school career.

Unbeaten Cavs hang on at Bremen

September 18, 2010

BREMEN — The Lions had their chances late against Culver, but in the end the Class A IFCA sixth-ranked Cavaliers escaped with a 23-20 homecoming spoiler at Bremen.
Up 23-7 with 6:59 remaining in the game, Culver nearly snatched defeat from the jaws of victory as Bremen completed a 70-yard touchdown drive in just nine plays and two minutes.
Quarterback Nate Leeper capped off the scoring drive with an 11-yard pass to Ben Hueni, and the ensuing kick from Lucas Schlarb cut the Cavs’ lead to 23-14 with 4:53 on the clock.

Area football teams not looking back in Week 5

September 16, 2010

BREMEN — Culver head coach Andy Thomas' message to his players is simple:
Don't look back.
After claiming their first win over New Prairie in a decade and moving to a 4-0 start for the first time in program history, the Cavaliers (4-0, 2-0 NSC) face a new test at Bremen (2-2, 1-1 NSC) this week. With the Lions starting to come into their own under first year head coach Bob Holmes, Culver can't afford a big game letdown.
