Knox defense takes control at Triton

October 9, 2010

BOURBON — Knox linebacker Jordan Beem’s 50-yard interception return with 5.4 seconds left in the game at Triton somehow felt appropriate.
Not that Beem’s touchdown-scoring tightrope walk down the sideline affected the outcome in any way, but it certainly placed an exclamation mark on the Redskins’ superlative defensive effort.
Knox forced six turnovers — three picks and three fumble recoveries — piled up six tackles for a loss, and held the Trojans to 157 yards of total offense in a 27-0 Northern State Conference football win Friday.

Rockies back on track in win over Goshen

October 9, 2010

GOSHEN — 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.

Like old days: Lions take down Jimtown

October 9, 2010

BREMEN — 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.
“First and foremost I think it was a tremendous win for our kids and our community and everybody else,” said Bremen head football coach Bob Holmes. “This is a great community, and they’ve backed us the entire season. It’s just a great win for a great community.”

Panthers, Lancers survive at LaVille Sectional

October 8, 2010

LAKEVILLE — The LaVille Boys Soccer Sectional first round hinged upon recovery and survival at Newton Park Thursday.

The Lancers and Panthers meet in Saturday’s title round at 7 p.m. at Newton Park.

Rockies, Dragons fall at soccer Sectional

October 8, 2010

ARGOS — 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.

Jimtown spoils Triton Senior Night

October 8, 2010

BOURBON — It is nice to face a lesser foe on senior night. The Triton volleyball team was not so fortunate Thursday evening.
Jimtown put a damper on the festivities honoring Triton’s eight seniors with a 25-15, 25-18, 25-17 win, its 18th of the season.
“I’m really proud of the way the girls played tonight,” Triton coach Terrin Meister said. “We did do some great things, but we just have to get over that hump.”
Jimtown (18-6, 4-2 Northern State Conference) knew it had to overcome a motivated opponent.

Boys soccer sectionals get underway today

October 7, 2010

ARGOS — The Dragons have a tough road at sectional this week.
Although Argos has already notched a win over rival Plymouth, the Sectional 17 hosts will have to get through defending champion Warsaw today to even get to the finals this year.
“It’s going to take a superb team effort on our part for us to get them,” said Argos head coach Todd VanDerWeele. “Anything’s possible, and I think of all the teams I’ve had since I’ve been coaching at Argos, this is the best one I’ve had that I think could do that.”

Falcons, Cavs meet in big NSC showdown

October 7, 2010

WALKERTON — Coming off back-to-back losses against Knox and Jimtown, the Culver Cavaliers (5-2, 3-2 NSC) jump out of the frying pan and into the fire this week with a game at Northern State Conference foe John Glenn (6-1, 4-1 NSC).
In fact, Culver head coach Andy Thomas sees some parallels between the Jimmies and the Falcons, who were handed their only loss this season by Jimtown.

CMA tops Plymouth 3-2 at Clay

October 6, 2010

SOUTH BEND — Once again, Plymouth faced Culver Military at the South Bend Clay Regional.
Once again, the Pilgrims fell.
Plymouth's boys tennis squad lost a 3-2 decision Tuesday at Leeper Park, while Penn trumped South Bend St. Joseph's 3-2 to set up the championship match between the Eagles and the Kingsmen today.
"I told the kids I'm not great at losing, but we should stand with our heads high because there wasn't anybody who fell under the pressure," said Pilgrims head coach Michael Delp. "It was a battle, and we fought hard.
