NEW HAVEN — Friday night’s Northeast Hoosier Conference contest pitted two once-beaten teams, the Columbia City Eagles and the host New Haven Bulldogs.
The game played to a first half draw both on the scoreboard and in statistics.
Unfortunately for Columbia City, the second half saw the Bulldogs break open the contest, out-scoring the Eagles 35-7 to hand Columbia City their second loss of the season by a 62-33 score.
“We played one good half, even though we had trouble stopping them after the first quarter,” Columbia City Head Coach Randy Hudgins said. “Unfortunately that is what people will remember, but we really stymied their offense early and performed very well.”
