DENVER â Had it not been for a second quarter momentum shift, the outcome of Columbia Cityâs boys basketball game at Northfield may have been different.
The Eagles came off a 13-6 first-quarter deficit to out-score the Norsemen 26-2 in the second quarter and win 66-43.
âWe allowed them to play in their comfort zone in the first quarter,â Columbia City Head Coach Chris Benedict said. âIn the second quarter we started to pressure them with a full court press.â
TOPEKA â Churubusco Head Coach Mike McBride said the Eagle schedule to start the season is a difficult one.
It didnât get any easier Friday when âBusco traveled to Westview High School and lost to the Warriors, 47-31.
Westview player Brant Yoder, who had 17 points in the game, hit a two-pointer with just under two minutes left and âBusco went into the locker room trailing 19-11 at the half.
With 1:15 left to go in the third, LeFever fouled out of the game.
The Eagle deficit had grown even farther; the third period ended with the score 34-21 in favor of the Warriors.
COLUMBIA CITY â Columbia Cityâs Lady Eagle basketball team fell to 2-5 Thursday after a loss to Bishop Dwenger.

It wasnât until Emily Whiteleather hit one of two free throws with under five minutes to go in the first quarter that Columbia City was on the scoreboard.
âOur slow start in the first quarter didnât help us,â said Lady Eagle Head Coach Amy Shearer.
