Week four of the high school football season came and went for area teams this week.

Columbia’s homecoming game resulted in a big win. The Eagles soared over Wesclin, 42-0 — all the points came in the first half.

The game started with an onside kick attempt by Wesclin. Columbia recovered the ball for good field position. Quarterback Drew Huebner started the game with a 52-yard play action pass to Chris Wagner for the score. The duo connected again on Columbia’s next possession, this time for a 15-yard score.

Kenny Fields got the ground game going. He rushed 25 yards up the middle and straight into the end zone. Huebner was back at it again. After a bad snap, he recovered for a 49-yard TD pass to Cameron Touchette, who was wide open.

Fields scored again, this time a 3-yard score. Owen Suedkamp was the last to score, on a 2-yard run.

Columbia is now 4-0.

Waterloo followed up last week’s win with a 35-14 loss at home against Triad. Seven turnovers didn’t help the Bulldogs in this one.

Trailing 28-7 with less than 10 seconds to go in the first half, Waterloo had a 78-yard punt. Instead of taking a knee, Triad fumbled on a running play. Waterloo got the ball back. Quarterback Aaron Laskowski found Austin Patton for the 10-yard score and the ‘Dogs went into halftime down 28-14 instead of by three scores. That same duo connected on a 4-yard pass earlier in the game.

Unfortunately, turnovers and penalties kept the Bulldogs from finding the end zone again.

Waterloo is now 1-3.

Also, Dupo lost at home to Red Bud, 45-8. Dupo is now 0-4.
