Columbia Cityâ€™s Derek Hinen rounds second base Friday night against Huntington North.
HUNTINGTON â€” It was less than 24 hours after the Eaglesâ€™ come-from-behind, 8-7 win in a conference rivalry game against Homestead before Columbia Cityâ€™s baseball team had to take the field again.
The situation was similar to the night before. Fridayâ€™s opponent, Huntington North, is a larger school than Columbia City. So is Homestead, the Eaglesâ€™ Thursday opponent. Also, both adversaries sport warrior-type mascots.
The similarities donâ€™t end there. The result of both games hinged largely on one big run-scoring inning. However, the case of dĂ©jĂ vu stops at that point, as the Eagles fell Friday night to the Vikings 6-2 in Huntington.
The loss is Columbia Cityâ€™s first. The Eaglesâ€™ record now stands at 4-1.
After four innings of even play between the two teams, the score was tied at 2-2.
In the bottom of the fifth, the home team put up the four runs that would make up the winning margin for Huntington North.
