COLUMBIA CITY â After close games, many coaches donât speak very highly of the opposing team.
It was quite the opposite for Norwellâs Head Coach Eric Thornton, when he spoke of Friday nightâs game against Columbia Cityâs girls basketball team.
âColumbia Cityâs not going to give up,â Thornton said.
If effort heart could win the game, the Lady Eagles couldâve walked out of the gym with a second conference win Friday night.
Unfortunately, though, Norwell (5-1) held on through a roller coaster fourth quarter to win, 50-46, and pick up its first Northeast Hoosier Conference win.
