FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Columbia City faces another hot opponent

October 17, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY— After three straight weeks of playing a ranked football team, Columbia City gets a reprieve.

But not much of one. The Norwell Knights are currently unranked in Class 4A, but are red-hot, having won their last three games in a row.

Those three wins came against East Noble, DeKalb and Homestead.

While Columbia City lost to East Noble and Homestead this year, the Eagles also beat Bellmont, who defeated Norwell.

This match-up between the 3-5 Eagles and 3-5 Knights will be even more interesting, though, as it is a sectional preview.
