Wildcats fall to Manchester, 13-10

September 8, 2012

NORTH MANCHESTER — Friday night was a soaking, muddy scuffle for Whitko’s football team as it fought hard against the Manchester Squires, falling just short of a victory with a final score of 13-10.

It was a somber moment, as the clock ran out and the boys sat in their half crescent around Head Coach Swender. “Boys,” he said, “we have two choices: We can go down, or come Monday, we can go back up.”

Next week, the Wildcats take on the Wabash Apaches in their homecoming game.

Columbia City loses to NHC powerhouse Homestead

September 8, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — The rain came early in Friday night’s Columbia City home football game against Northeast Hoosier Conference foe Homestead, and with them came a flood of Eagle offensive woes.

With leading rusher Adam Neely on the sidelines in a cast, the Eagles were victimized for seven interceptions and had extreme difficulty finishing drives against the Spartans. The end result was a 41-6 loss for the Eagles.

On a wet night, Columbia City finished the contest with eight turnovers, and it was the first of those turnovers that helped give the Spartans the early lead.

August 31, 2012

CHURUBUSCO — While many teams are settling in to the 2012 season, learning what works for this year’s team — and what doesn’t — one thing hasn’t changed for Churubusco. When the Eagles take the field, they’re going to win.

In fact, out of the last 36 regular season games ’Busco has played, the Eagles have only lost three — just one on their home field.
Friday night’s contest against Prairie Heights was no different, as Churubusco’s offense racked up 42 points, and the defense held the Panthers scoreless.
