Centennial quarterback Malcolm Mitchell nearly sat out Friday's 38-30 triple-overtime win against Little Axe.

“He had a tweaked ankle and was held out for most of the first quarter and then we realized that we had to have them in,” Centennial coach Don Willis said.

Mitchell ended up accounting for four touchdowns and throwing for more than 200 yards to help Centennial improve to 4-2 on the year.

Willis said Mitchell is a proven winner having won two state titles with the Centennial basketball team.

“He put us on his shoulder last night and took us on to the victory,” Willis said.

Centennial was also able to come up with a big stop on Little Axe's final possession of triple overtime to pick up the win.

Defensive end David Rainge also had the best game of his career, coming up with five sacks.
