HANOVER -- Columbia needed five total plays to score two touchdowns to open its road game at Hanover on Friday night. The hot start had the makings for a blowout win. Instead, Columbia cooled over the next two quarters before ultimately pulling away for a 30-7 non-league football victory."
"We did pull away but it felt a lot tighter the whole way through," Columbia first-year head coach Brady Mathias said. "I heard my guys say it so I'll repeat it. We bend but we don't break."
