CNHS boys soccer crosstown rivalry update
Columbus North boy’s soccer team faced Columbus East on Aug. 27. Even with many factors put in place due to COVID-19, the Bull Dogs still made a great performance.
Senior Martin Figueroa said that there were a few different things he did this year in preparing for the big game.
“I practiced hard with my teammates and [learned] new things from our new coach for this rivalry game,” Figueroa said.
Both teams tied 1-1, with a shot from East the last few seconds of the game.
Figueroa was surprised by the turnout of the game.
“We lost to East the past three years and we wanted to win this game,” Figueroa said. “When we scored first it felt good, but for East to score the last 39 seconds of the game [it] felt like a loss.”
Even with the result, Figueroa said that there were memorable moments of the game.
“[My] favorite moment was watching my teammates [play their best] and watching the crowd go wild when both teams scored,” Figueroa said.
North also faced off against Center Grove on Sept. 1 with a final score of 2-2.
