ANGOLA — Whatever momentum Columbia City’s baseball team had built up heading towards sectionals was lost Monday night at Angola.

The Eagles were 10-runned by the Hornets by a final of 13-3 after five innings.

Columbia City was only down 5-3 in the middle of the fifth frame.

However, what started as a feasible deficit to overcome turned into an insurmountable one that ultimately ended the game without the Eagles getting another turn to bat. Angola scored eight runs in the bottom of the fifth to win the matchup, 13-3.

All told, Columbia City spent more time on the bus driving to and from Angola than in the actual game.
