Fairmont State's Season Saved by a False Start?

MEC Week 1 Recap

by Raymond Franze on 09-05-2017 at 07:48 PM
Week 1 is in the books; and the narratives are beginning to take shape. Points were plentiful in half of the games where total points exceeded 70, including the offensive slugfest between Shepherd and Notre Dame where 103 total points were posted on the scoreboard. Ball security was lacking as the six games averaged four turnovers a piece.

Here is the breakdown of each game ....

Urbana 21
West Liberty 24

The Hilltoppers began the season in
