Pinecrest coach Todd Winter told his team before Friday’s game that he wanted them to be the hunters, and not the hunted. Whitefield dodged one bullet when the Paladins failed to score on 4th-and-goal from the 1 early in the first quarter after a muffed punt, but Pinecrest defensive back Mitchell Ojeda punished the Wolfpack just six plays later by stepping in front of Sky Dupree’s throw and sprinting 21 yards for the touchdown. The Paladins made no mistake when Whitefield muffed another punt inside its own 10 in the third quarter: Matt Walters flipped in from seven yards out as Pinecrest polished off the Wolfpack, 28-7, at home on Friday.
