Columbia avenged last season’s three losses to Gibault on Tuesday night — including a playoff defeat that ended their season — in a physicalĀ soccer match between two powerhouses at Columbia High School that featured three of the area’s top seven scorers.

The Eagles (8-0) scored first on a goal by Ryan Gudeman with 17 minutes to go in the first half, taking a 1-0 lead into halftime.Ā Andrew Dossett, who came into the game tied for third in the area in points with 28, scored Columbia’s second goal with 24:04 to play in the second half.

Gibault (7-2-1) got on the board on a goal by Tyler Enright with 12:03 to play in the game, bringing the score to 2-1, where it would stay for the duration.

There were multiple yellow cards handed down against each team, and a lone red card issued to Gibault goalie Austin Gregson with just minutes to play in the game.

Fans of both teams turned out en masse for the misty evening game, with elated Eagles fans storming the field as the final whistle blew.
