November 02, 1993|By Rich Scherr


* 75-pounders -- Trailing 13-0 with under five minutes to play, the Columbia Bulldogs staged a fourth-quarter comeback to edge Rosedale, 14-13, in Pop Warner football Saturday.

Midway through the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs' fortunes began to change when Josh Bartrug forced a Rosedale running back to fumble and Columbia's Nick Johnson recovered.

Running backs J. R. Haas and Brandon Finney, following the blocks of Matt Kolb and Matt Teel, pushed the ball downfield before Nick Service scored on an end-around to make it 13-6.

The extra-point attempt failed.

When Rosedale took the ensuing kickoff, it needed one first down to be able to run out the clock. But the tough interior defense of Columbia's Maurice Mohammed and Marcus Davis kept Rosedale to minimal gains on its first three downs.

On fourth-and-two, Gregg Kellett tackled Rosedale's runner for a 3-yard loss, and Columbia took over on downs.

Finney, following blocks by Paul Duffy and Vinnie Rubbo, carried the ball near the Rosedale end zone, setting up a short touchdown run by Haas with seconds remaining, cutting the lead to 13-12.

Center David Sloan gave a perfect snap to holder T. J. Welsh, who handled the wet ball. Haas kicked it through for the win.
