COLUMBIA CITY â€” Saturday morning showed bright and sunny, as the Columbia City boysâ€™ soccer team played host to Huntington North. Huntington junior Zach Baldridge proved to be a massive pain in the side, as he tallied five of the visitorsâ€™ scores in a 6-1 Viking victory.
CHURUBUSCO â€” The Churubusco Eagles continued their game against the Garrett Railroaders Saturday at 3 p.m. at home after it was postponed due to thunderstorms Friday night.

SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Friday nightâ€™s lightning postponement of Whitkoâ€™s football game didnâ€™t break the Wildcatsâ€™ concentration when it resumed Saturday afternoon. Whitko held on to its 7-0 lead to win its Three Rivers Conference opener over Southwood. With the game delayed with four minutes left in the third quarter, and Whitko holding a 7-0 lead, grid action resumed at 5 p.m. Saturday â€” without much more offensive action.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” When the football game was postponed by weather Friday night, the Eagles had just scored taking a 15-7 lead and looked to be in control.

The Bellmont offense gained more yardage in their first drive than they had the whole first half Friday night.
