SOUTH WHITLEY â€” First-game miscues led Whitko to a season-opening loss to Wawasee Friday night in South Whitley.
Despite possessing the ball twice as long as the Warriors in the first half, turnovers and penalties kept the Wildcats from the end zone, while Wawasee pulled out to a 14-0 halftime lead.
â€śIt was just the little things,â€ť Whitko Head Coach Wayne Swender said. â€śWe counted nine little things in the first half that didnâ€™t go our way. We were moving the ball really well in the first half and all-in-all we were happy defensively.â€ť
Whitko hosts Columbia City next Friday.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Sometimes football games come down to one team being able to do just enough of what they need to win.
In the season opener at Max Gandy Athletic Field, it was the visiting Warsaw Tigers, who were able to get just enough from their workhorse running back, who handed the Columbia City Eagles a 20-14 loss Friday night.
â€śI think its very simple; â€” Warsaw did what they needed to win the game and we did not,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Randy Hudgins said. â€śWarsaw won and we lost, and its because we didnâ€™t make the plays when we needed to make them.â€ť
CHURUBUSCO â€” Churubuscoâ€™s football team got off to a strong start Friday night, beating Fremont 46-13.

Following Nicodemusâ€™s lead, â€™Busco had two more touchdowns by the end of the first quarter, scored respectively by seniors, Jay Petrie and Cory Miller.
