COLUMBIA CITY â€” 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 Eaglesâ€™ 28-17 lead in the second quarter turned into a four-point loss, 63-59, in Columbia Cityâ€™s home-opener.
â€śThe good news is, weâ€™re pretty good. The bad news is, (we think) weâ€™re pretty good,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Chris Benedict said. â€śWe let them back in the game and it deflated our momentum. Itâ€™s frustrating.â€ť
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.
