Pinewood kept its title hopes alive in the Mission Trail Athletic League eight-man football race by rallying for a 46-34 victory over visiting Crystal Springs on Thursday. The Panthers (4-1) bounced back from an early 60-yard fumble recovery touchdown by Crystal Springs star Karl Clayter to post the victory. Pinewood's Kyle Murphy returned the ensuing kickoff 78 yards for touchdown and, after a two-point conversion, the Panthers led the rest of the way.

Murphy had four touchdowns, including three in the first half -- the kickoff return, a 62-yard screen pass and 5- yard TD run as time expired in the half as Pinewood took a 30-20 lead. The teams traded scores the rest of the way, but Pinewood pulled away on a blocked punt returned for a touchdown by Alex Banning and another screen pass TD pass from QB Jaeden Bailey to Murphy that covered 45 yards. Bailey also had a 10-yard TD pass and two 2-point conversion passes to Sean Murphy to round out the scoring.

Pinewood will take its 4-1 record against league rival Trinity Christian next Friday at Pinewood at 3:30 p.m.
