Columbus High hosts Papillion-La Vista as the Class A playoffs open today.
The Discoverers’ last win in the playoffs came against Bellevue West in 2010. Since then, Columbus is 0-5 in the postseason.
Coach Craig Williams was asked how big is today’s game for him and his team. “This is big for us because our kids play better with a chip on their shoulder,” Williams said. “I think they’re excited to go out and prove to everybody in the state with a little run here that we deserve to be talked about throughout the state in Class A football.”
Kickoff at Pawnee Park’s Memorial Field is set for 3 p.m. You can hear the action on KLIR 101.
