Center Line Captures MAC Bronze Division Title 


The Center Line Panthers clinched the MAC Bronze Championship Saturday by shutting out Lamphere 30-0. 

The Panthers scored on a 5 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Nick Hastings to wide receiver Jaden Davis for a 6-0 lead. 

Later Hastings would score on a 30 yard scamper to put Center Line up 13-0 before halftime. 


Panther Head Coach Ben Torres was very pleased with the teams effort, but added “we still have work to do in week nine”. 

“Our goal at the beginning of the year was to win the division,beat arch rival  Lincoln keeping the Brown Jug and winning six games as well as qualifying for the playoffs” said Torres.  CL can win their sixth game and clinch a playoff berth by winning at Marysville next week. 

“I’m very proud of these kids” concluded Torres. 

Hastings finished the day with 5 of 7 passing for 75 yards and one TD.  He would also run the ball for 65 yards on 3 carries and a touchdown.

Diante Taylor carried the ball 10 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns.

The Panther defense was stifling.  George Talley III had five tackles and five sacks. Davon Sears had four tackles to go along with four sacks and a safety.  

Levi Walker had seven tackles and two sacks and Isaac Lazarowicz contributed six tackles and an interception.
