Columbus Football falls to Millard South

October 6, 2018

No.6 Millard South proved to be too much for Columbus on a rainy Friday night as the Patriots defeated the Discoverers 49-14, dropping the Discoverers record to 2-5.

Millard South started out hot right from the beginning scoring in under two minutes to take a 7-0 lead, but Joey Braasch attempted to keep Columbus in the game and tied the game up with 8:52 in the first quarter.

The game then started to get out of hand as the Patriots scored 35 unanswered points to take a 42-7.

Garrett Esch then found his way into the end zone on a long run in the third quarter to narrow the lead to 42-14.

The next game for Columbus is 7 p.m. Friday at No.4 Omaha Westside (7-0).
