It was a stormy match-up between cross-county rivals Columbia and Waterloo at CHS field Wednesday.

The two teams were able to get in one half of play in the “Coaches Kickin’ Out Cancer” game as the evening storms blew in.

Waterloo did not come out playing its strongest game and allowed goals by Lauren Kaempfe and Rianna Probst to roll past them in the first 40 minutes of play.

At halftime, it began to lightning and the game was called for the night just before heavy rains started. The two teams agreed to play the second half of the game Friday, but according to IHSA, the game officially can be considered finished once one half is played. Therefore, Columbia got the win, 2-0.
