Columbus East and Columbus North battled in one of the bigger rivalries in high school football Friday night at Stafford Field, The Olympians and the Bulldogs had another great go; this time the victors being the Bulldogs 34-17.

The game was closely contested after the first two quarters, with North leading 13-10 at halftime. However, the Bulldogs never ran out of gas in the second half, ending the game on a scoring run, accumulating 21 unanswered points.

However, spirits weren’t broken after the game, and East senior defensive back Caleb Pettit still had high hopes about the season.

“We played as a team and that’s all that matters,” Pettit said. “They’re one of the best teams we’ll play all year; we needed this. All we need now is a great week in practice and we’ll be back even stronger next time.”

The Olympians (1-1) come back to action next week against Seymour, away at 7 p.m.
