COLUMBIA CITY â€” Friday nightâ€™s sectional title game was not the ending a large crowd of Columbia City football fans had braved the cold for.
First half turnovers and a Norwell offense that kept the Columbia City defense on the field for big chunks of the first half put the Eagles in a 21-point first-half hole that they were not able to climb out of, and Columbia City fell 35-7 to the Knights in the IHSAA Sectional 20 finals.
The stands are expected to be crowded in Columbia City tonight for the Eaglesâ€™ sectional championship football game against Norwell. Columbia City is seeking its second-ever sectional title. The Eaglesâ€™ last won the sectional in 1993. Pictured above is a full crowd at Columbia Cityâ€™s Homecoming game in September.

Huston was hoping to see his favorite player, Paul Konerko, take the field one last time before retiring at the end of the season. While Konerko did not make an appearance in the game, all was not lost. Seated directly behind Andy was none other than former White Sox slugger Ron Kittle (left).
