FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Whitko playing for championship

October 17, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — Whitko’s football team had its five-game winning streak snapped last week against Rochester.

Even worse for the 5-3 Wildcats, their loss to the Zebras was their first to a Three Rivers Conference opponent.

This week, though, Whitko still has much to play for when it takes the field. The Wildcats can put the 26-9 loss to the Zebras in the rearview mirror and focus on visiting Tippecanoe Valley.

The winner of the game between the Wildcats and Vikings will get at least a share of the TRC championship, and possibly more.

FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Columbia City faces another hot opponent

October 17, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY— After three straight weeks of playing a ranked football team, Columbia City gets a reprieve.

But not much of one. The Norwell Knights are currently unranked in Class 4A, but are red-hot, having won their last three games in a row.

Those three wins came against East Noble, DeKalb and Homestead.

While Columbia City lost to East Noble and Homestead this year, the Eagles also beat Bellmont, who defeated Norwell.

This match-up between the 3-5 Eagles and 3-5 Knights will be even more interesting, though, as it is a sectional preview.

FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Eagles look to rebound all the way to title

CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco’s conference winning streak, dating back to 2010, was snapped last week by Fairfield.

Despite that result, the 7-1 Eagles still have much incentive in their final game against Lakeland, which is 6-2.

‘Busco could rebound from defeat all the way into a tie for the Northeast Corner Conference championship.

Fairfield’s conference slate is over, and the Falcons ended at 7-1 in the NECC. Churubusco, at 6-1, could get a tie for the championship with a win Friday.
