COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia City fans saw what looked more like a hockey match than a boys basketball game Friday night.
The Eagles hosted East Noble in the Northeast Hoosier Conference opener â€” in a game with two technical fouls and two Columbia City players who took a trip to the trainerâ€™s office with injuries.
Despite the rough-housing, the Eagles came out with their sixth victory, by a 76-35 score â€” improving to 6-0.
The physical play began late in the first quarter, when Columbia City had a 20-12 lead.
LIGONIER â€” The Whitko Lady Wildcats traveled north Thursday night to face the West Noble Lady Chargers in a non-conference basketball matchup. A furious fourth quarter rally by the Lady Wildcats put the Lady Wildcats in a position to win, but the loss of two important players and game-long free throw woes sent the Lady â€˜Cats down to a 53-51 overtime loss to the Lady Chargers.
