The Columbus Titan football team has been named this weeks "Craw-Kan Team of the Week" from the Southeast Kansas area for their 22-21 victory over Holton in the 4A-II playoffs on Friday.

Columbus would score on a Jace McDown touchdown on fourth and goal with nine seconds remaining in the game to tie it at 21 and kick the go ahead extra point to win 22-21. Holton had two offensive plays remaining but the Titans would stop them as time ran out.

"It was a great win, we are happy to have came this far, but we aren't satisfied yet," Columbus quarterback, Nate Bole said.

The win puts the Titans (10-1) in the state semifinals for the first time in school history. Columbus has 14 appearances in the state playoffs in the playoff era with nine playoff wins.

With the win, the Titans advanced to play Santa Fe Trail (9-2) in the 4A-II sub-state championship at home on Friday. A win would put Columbus in its first ever title appearance in football in playoff era.
