(9-9-17) Former Stateline area coaches went 2-1 on Friday night.
The lone loss on Friday was in Arizona when former Celina Coach Mike Fell and his Mountain View (2-1) Toros lost their first game of the season 26-7 to Pinnacle.
Fell told mynewsmeas.com after the game:
“I felt like coming in this would show what type of team we are. I still believe that we can play with these guys. I still think we are good enough.”
The Toros, who are now 2-1, will play Mountain Pointe next week.

Another former Celina Coach Jared Rolfes, continues to enjoy the drama his Page (NC) Pirates provide every week. Taking it down to the final seconds is quickly becoming a normal part of the Pirates game-plan.
This week, Thomas Murray’s 19-yard field goal with 1:43 to play in the game was the difference in Page’s 19-16 win at Eastern Guilford. But his punt in the third quarter could have been the key in the last minute win, Eastern Guilford had gone up 9-0 with 8:06 in the quarter, the Wildcats would then stop the Pirates on the next drive, but thanks to Murray nailing a 44-yard punt that would put Eastern with their backs against the wall on their own 1-yard line.
Rolfes told greensboro.com after the game:
“People fail to remember that when you have a kicker who can put you in position to be successful, that’s huge. Tonight we won because he gave us those three points and because he flipped the field.”
