PREP FOOTBALL: Panthers fall to NLC rival Plymouth

NAPPANEE — The Plymouth Rockies made an impressive comeback in the fourth quarter at host NorthWood to win 21-14.

“We didn’t play well in the first 24 minutes, but we were able to turn it around in the fourth quarter,” said Plymouth head coach John Barron.

Northwood was able to put some points on the board first when Tanner Cleveland ran the ball in for the first Panther touchdown of the night. A PAT made the score 7-0.

The Rockies looked to gain some ground against the Panthers, but proved unsuccessful as their effort was intercepted by Northwood’s Trent Sauceda to end the first quarter in the Panthers’ favor.

The second quarter continued to go in the Panthers favors as Cleveland carried the ball to the Rockies 30 yard line and then again to their 10 yard line into scoring range. Cleveland continued to take charge of the ball, running in for his second Northwood touchdown of the night and moving the score to 14-0 after a successful PAT.

The Rockies saw their first big drive after Jack Barron was able to carry the ball into the Panther’s zone at the 40-yard line.

But the drive was cut short when the Panthers Zach Hazel was able to turn the ball over at the Northwood 35 yard line.  

The second half started to move more in the favor of the visiting Rockies as they used their beginning possession to their advantage, moving the ball for a first down at the Northwood 11 yard line. Plymouth’s Michael Hartman put the first numbers on the board of the game for the Rockies as he ran in the ball for a 14-7 score after the extra point.

“Bottom line is at the end of the game we needed someone to step up,” said Northwood head coach Scott Hoover.

As the Panthers worked to regain their composure and gain back the offense, Travis Bear received and carried for 26 yards into scoring position in the Plymouth end of the field.

The Panthers tried for a kick to get some more points on the board but proved unsuccessful as they moved into the last minute of the third quarter.

“Our teams work on defense in the second half was crucial,” said Barron.

Starting off the fourth quarter, the Rockies moved the ball into the Northwood zone and later scored by with Elliott Eads, bringing the score to a tie after the extra point at 14-14.

A 64 yard carry by Plymouth’s Dakota Brooke broke the tie and bring the final score to 21-14 Rockies

Both teams head into sectional play next week for the first round of play.

NorthWood travels to East Noble for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
