The one guy who really stood out for the Chieftains was Tines. The junior wideout scored his second touchdown in the fourth quarter when Bunker faked a handoff inside and handed to Tines’ who came in motion as a receiver. Tines got a couple nice blocks, broke a few tackles and danced along the sideline for a 70-yard touchdown run.
“Corey made some big plays for us,” noted Pugh. “Staying in bounds on that long touchdown run was one of the top plays I’ve seen from one of my guys.”
Tines also happened to be the best player on the other side of the ball too, breaking up all three passes that came his way — including two that came on third down and stopped Melrose drives.
