NEW HAVEN Ââ Friday nightâs Northeast Hoosier Conference contest pitted two once-beaten teams, the Columbia City Eagles and the host New Haven Bulldogs.
The game played to a first half draw both on the scoreboard and in statistics.
Unfortunately for Columbia City, the second half saw the Bulldogs break open the contest, out-scoring the Eagles 35-7 to hand Columbia City their second loss of the season by a 62-33 score.
CHURUBUSCO â The Churubusco football statistics from Friday nightâs game against West Noble were a bit misleading.
Heading into the fourth quarter, the Eagles had only 17 offensive plays and two first downs.
The team also happened to be leading the West Noble Chargers by a score of 55-6.
The Eagles won the game, 62-25, remaining unbeaten and in the process, keeping West Noble win-less.
Time of possession was simply not a factor for âBusco.
SOUTH WHITLEY â After five games on the road, the Wildcats were finally able to share a win with their home crowd Friday night against Northfield.
Despite the teamâs penalties, interceptions, fumbles and playing without senior stand-out receiver and linebacker Derek Snep, Whitko pulled out a 31-14 win over the Norsemen.
âThe mistakes we made were a lack of execution,â Whitko Head Coach Wayne Swender said.
The Wildcats had three fumbles, six penalties and two interceptions.
