COLUMBIA CITY — Warsaw proved that even the best of teams can be beaten.
Columbia City, ranked in the Associated Press and Indiana Coaches Association polls, as well as semi-state qualifier last season, was taken down by the Tigers Saturday night.
The Eagles’ 28-17 lead in the second quarter turned into a four-point loss, 63-59, in Columbia City’s home-opener.
“The good news is, we’re pretty good. The bad news is, (we think) we’re pretty good,” Columbia City Head Coach Chris Benedict said. “We let them back in the game and it deflated our momentum. It’s frustrating.”
Warsaw started the game with an 8-2 lead that Drew Benedict quickly turned around after a 3-pointer, a steal for a lay-up and another three from at least four feet behind the arc to tie the score at 10.
