’Cats boys soccer falls 4-1

August 26, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — According to Whitko boys varsity soccer coach Jason Ehrman, it takes a series of steps in order to reach your goal.

Ehrman said the ‘Cats did everything he asked of them except for putting the ball in the net.

“We are much further along, and to be honest, I didn’t think we could play and possess the ball the way we did,” said Ehrman.

Wildcats toppled by Wawasee in opener, 42-20

August 24, 2013

SYRACUSE — With just eight seniors on his team, first-year Whitko Head Coach Josh Mohr knew his young Wildcats would be tested in their opening football game at Wawasee.

Warsaw runs away with win over Col. City

August 24, 2013

WARSAW ­— Size matters. Columbia City Eagle Head Coach Randy Hudgens summed up the opening football game Friday when he said, “Our margin for error is not very big when we play a 6A team.”

For the Eagles’ errors — an interception returned for a touchdown, an 82-yard punt return, a lost onside kick, and another interception deep in their own territory — all added up to a 33-14 season-opening loss to the homestanding Warsaw Tigers.

“Near-misses on offense and just-misses on defense are not things we can afford to do when we are a smaller-roster 4A school,” Hudgins said.
