The day started out questionable as the heavens opened up and release a fury of rain down over most of Southern Michigan. The field conditions had been in question for the week prior to the game but that wasn't going to stop Columbia from playing the game of their life. The excitement was the buzz of the small town, Columbia had not been in the playoffs in quite some time.
The mass of white quickly faded to shades of brown as the Eagles tried to stay on their feet . We all watched in awe as you could see their knees give way and as the players sprinted through the mud.
Alex Wesche determined to make the catch, set his footing, and jumped for the completion.
Wesche and Turner made their way through the walls of blue with the continued help of their teammates.
(Upper right) Mud flew everywhere as Travis Turner, #4 Columbia Central maneuvered around #3 of Dundee for a touchdown.

The game was a back and forth battle of who could break the tie. The eagles kept Dundee on their toes until the very last minute literally. Dundee made the winning touch down ending the game 27 to 20.
To say their hearts were left out on the field would be an understatement. The Columbia Eagles had an amazing season that brought a small community closer together. Keep your heads high, you played a great game! We look forward to another great season next year.
Love to find your special quirks and personality. Love to find the love in every relationship. Want every image to make you "feel" some kind of emotion. Looking for the real emotions.
