COLUMBIA CITY — Running a hard trap was enough to give Columbia City’s boys soccer team headaches Thursday.

Visiting Bellmont downed the Eagles 3-0 in the opening Northeast Hoosier Conference match for Columbia City. The Eagles are now 2-2 on the year and 0-1 in the NHC.

Malless credited the Braves for sticking to their scheme.
