  • East beats West again

    Another week, another last-minute victory for East Middle over rival West.

    This time, however, it was in the district tournament opener, and East won, 30-22, with the same sort of late heroics that had given the Missiles a 26-20 victory last week.

    Missiles quarterback Britton Woolwine completed a touchdown pass with 1 minute, 33 seconds to go to seal the victory, but the offense was led by running back Trenton Lafollette, who rushed for three touchdowns.
