Center Point-Urbana puts Columbus Sailors out to sea, 40-20

Posted: Updated:

Center Point-Urbana jumps into the 2-A rankings at number eight this week after knocking off previous number two North Fayette Valley. Columbus on the other hand was still looking for its first win of the season.

The Sailors celebrated homecoming this week -- a full week of activities, including 17 service projects all in one day for the students.

C-P-U started strong behind the running of number 36 Brandon Kinsey. First play of the game he runs 13 yards for the first down.

Seven plays later, C-P-U calls a misdirection play, pitching it to number 82 Mitch Sullivan, who takes it in from 11 yards out for the touchdown.

The Storm'n Pointers would go for two, and the Sailors did a great job of stuffing them at the line of scrimmage and holding them out of the end zone.

The Sailors then start strong on offense with a first-down completion from Reed Bailey to Nate Geiger.

Four plays later, the Sailors do not convert a fourth down from their own 30, and the Storm'n Pointers take advantage.

Second play of the drive and C-P-U gives it to their horse, number 36 Kinsey, and he would take off around the left side sprinting past everyone from 30 yards out for the score.

The extra point is good and C-P-U leads 13-0.

The Sailors went to work taking the ball from their own 27-yard line with a mix of run and pass, Christian Hellman with a nice quarterback keeper.

Then Hellman goes to the air and finds number 82, Greg Glass, over the middle from 35 yards out for the touchdown. The Sailors extra point makes it 13-7 C-P-U.

In the second quarter, the Storm'n Pointers tack on a bit more points. The Sailors punt gets blocked by number 50 Kevin Schlotfeldt, and then number 64 Cameron Bantz catches it and would run it into the end zone for the touchdown.

The extra point would make it 20-7 C-P-U.

The Sailors make it 20-13 at the half, but the Storm'n Pointers pull away in the second half, winning 40-20.
