ANGOLA — What is it about the fourth quarter and Columbia City football?
After countless penalties and lost leads, the Eagles found another way to win in the final period.
No. 8 Columbia City (10-1) saw an early 14-0 first-quarter lead disappear Friday night at Angola (9-2). Over two struggling quarters, the Hornets had the Eagles trailing —that is, until the fourth quarter.
PONETO –– The Churubusco Eagles took the long trip to Southern Wells Friday night to take on the Raiders in a sectional semifinal match-up.
Neither team would go down without a fight, but with 24.6 seconds left in the game, it was Churubusco that walked off the field with a 12-6 victory.
“We hung in there — we knew it was going to be a 48-minute football game — and they hung in there,” ’Busco head coach Lee Etzler said.
