MOUNTIAN VIEW – The Mountain View Buffaloes earned a win last Friday in a non-conference season opener against the Cokeville Panthers 27-21.

“Our kids played well. It was an important win, and I am proud,” said Brent Walk, head coach.

Both the Buffalos and the Panthers brought strong defensive teams to the game last Friday afternoon. Unlike Mountain View, Cokeville was coming off the bench cold. They didn’t have a week zero game. The Panthers put points on the board to start the first quarter. Mountain View’s offense made short gains down the field but could not answer with a touchdown of their own. The Buffalos defense allowed the Panthers to put the ball on the 2-yard line and goal after the turnover. With confidence, Cokeville set up to push the ball through the line of scrimmage hoping for a touchdown on fourth down.

Back to back touchdowns began the fourth quarter. A quick pass from Buffalos’ Austin Housekeeper to Snow and a field goal adds seven more points for Mountain View. The Panthers took no time to return the ball to their end zone with a large yardage run from Cokeville junior Jace Peterson, score 21-14. Several first downs sent the Buffalos towards their end zone and set Mountain View up for a hand-off to Cade Covington and a wide open run up the middle for another Buffalo touchdown. It was directly followed by the Panthers catching the ball from the Buffalo kicker and running down field dodging defensive players for a touchdown of their own, score 27-20. An interception for Cokeville, at the end of the fourth quarter, made it look like the Panthers could tie up the game, but Mountain View’s junior Caleb Flake ended the game with an interception for the Buffalos, letting the 16 seconds run off the clock.
