Dwenger converts free throws to beat Col. City

November 28, 2012

FORT WAYNE — Columbia City’s girls basketball team fell to Bishop Dwenger Tuesday night in a contest that was largely decided at the free-throw line.

The Lady Eagles were 8-for-12 from the charity stripe as a team in the 46-41 loss, but the Saints were 25-for-32, including a crucial 8-for-8 second quarter, when Dwenger took the lead for good. The trips to the line marred an otherwise good defensive effort by Columbia City.

The defeat dropped the Eagles to 2-4 on the year.

Lady Eagles lose heartbreaker

November 19, 2012

Despite Macie Hinen’s comeback — scoring twice in the final minute to take a three-point lead — Marion scored twice in the final four seconds to win, 43-40.

The end of the road: ’Busco falls to Bishop Luers in sectional title game, 21-0

November 3, 2012

CHURUBUSCO — While Churubusco’s football season seemingly ended the same as it did last year — a lopsided loss at Bishop Luers.

But Friday’s 21-0 score is hardly comparable to last season’s 34-7 loss to the Knights.

The Eagles held the score to a one-possession game for the first 39 minutes of play, had several threatening offensive drives and a defense that forced Luers to multiple 4th-and-longs. The Knights were scoreless for two quarters, only reaching the end zone in the final seven minutes.
