COLUMBIA CITY â€” For 36 minutes, the Columbia City boys soccer team went toe-to-toe with Homestead.
Once the Spartans found the net, it would be the beginning of a scoring barrage the Eagles could not match.
Holding a slim 1-0 lead at intermission, Homestead managed to put 10 goals on the board in the second period to shutout the Eagles 11-0 in conference play.
In the first period, the lone goal came with 3:37 showing on the clock when Anthony Jimenez recorded his first of six goals to give the 20th-ranked Spartans a lead it would take to the locker room at the end of 40 minutes.
CHURUBUSCO â€” In volleyball, scoring first helps, but the team that gets the final point is the winner.
Columbia Cityâ€™s volleyball team put that theory to the test Tuesday in its county-rivalry win over Churubusco. â€™Busco got the first point in all three sets, but it was Columbia City who walked off with the 3-0 victory.
Columbia City won by nearly-symmetrical scores of 25-19, 25-19 and 25-18.
However, the three sets were not symmetrical. Visiting Columbia City battled back from a 12-6 hole to win the first one.
