COLUMBIA CITY— A week is only seven days long, but sometimes it can feel like a longer passage of time.

Columbia City’s football team will be looking for a much different result this Friday when it plays Norwell than it earned last week.

Norwell beat the Eagles 35-21 in Columbia City. Now, the stakes are higher in the rematch: Win or go home.

Columbia City will have to travel for its sectional quarterfinal. The Knights will host the game, which has a 7 p.m. kickoff, in Ossian.

Norwell enters the game on a hot streak. After starting the 2013 campaign 0-5, the Knights rolled off four wins in a row to end the season at 4-5.

Some of those wins came against giants in the Northeast Hoosier Conference, including a four-touchdown win over East Noble and a victory against Homestead.
