Columbia City drops tight match

September 20, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City’s volleyball team battled back, but its effort fell just short against Homestead.

The Lady Eagles fell in five games, 25-21, 25-20, 23-25, 17-25 and 15-13.

Although each game was competitive, Columbia City could have easily been deposited in three sets by the Lady Spartans. The score in game three was tied near the end, and Homestead was within points of putting away the hosts in a sweep.

However, the Lady Eagles rallied to take game 3, and then dominated with serving and held the advantage to take the fourth game as well.

“We were asleep on the court for the first game,” Alexander said.

The Lady Eagles fell 25-13 in game one. In game two, ISMS rallied from a 7-1 deficit to nearly tie the score, but fell 25-19 in the end.

Wildcats fall to Squires

September 19, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — Whitko’s boys soccer team lost a narrow contest to visiting Manchester Wednesday.

The Wildcats dropped a 1-0 contest to the Squires in a match that Coach Jason Ehrman said showed how far his team has come.

“They’re a great team,” he said. “Just to compete with them, from where we started, is great.”

The one goal came with just under 15 minutes left to play in a somewhat fluky situation. Manchester scored on a throw-in when Whitko’s goalkeeper, Jacob Helton, had the ball slip out of his hands for the score.

Lady Wildcat soccer ties Manchester

September 19, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — Big defensive efforts and excellent goalkeeper play forced a 0-0 tie between Whitko and Manchester Wednesday.

Whitko Girls Head Soccer Coach Gary Sims said he was surprised, and that it could have been a different result.

“It was a shock to me because of how we played,” he said. “They controlled the ball the whole game. It seemed like we only played for about five minutes at a time.”

One difficulty for the Lady Wildcats was that career-leading scorer Ellyana Blue was focused on by the Lady Squires.
