COLUMBIA CITY â Friday nightâs sectional title game was not the ending a large crowd of Columbia City football fans had braved the cold for.
First half turnovers and a Norwell offense that kept the Columbia City defense on the field for big chunks of the first half put the Eagles in a 21-point first-half hole that they were not able to climb out of, and Columbia City fell 35-7 to the Knights in the IHSAA Sectional 20 finals.
