No. 7 Lions roar past Wildcats

LISBON — Not only was it a rainy night, it seemed an avalanche had hit the Wildcats when Columbus traveled to play its Class A District 6 opener at seventh-ranked Lisbon.

The Lions had 26 points by the end of the first quarter and led 44-0 at halftime. The final was 57-0.

“It was a rough night,” Columbus head coach Dave Lekwa said. “Lisbon controlled the line of scrimmage all night long.”

Columbus could not get its offense untracked against the Lions. Wildcat quarterback Jeff Hoback attempted two passes without a completion and five different backs shared 32 carries, gaining 25 yards. Kaden Amigon-Suiter had six carries for 20 yards while Andy Gonzalez gained 21 yards on 12 carries.

On defense, Gauge Storm was the leading tackler for Columbus. He had five solo stops and seven assists. Amigon-Suiter recorded eight stops and they were all solo tackles. Logan Bright had 4.5 tackles.
