The Parkview Panthers football team won in overtime against the West Forsyth Wolverines.
Parkview’s final play in Friday’s 26-23 win over West Forsyth in the second round of the Class AAAAAA football playoffs didn’t go exactly the way it was drawn up.

Last year, Parkview lost the big game against Brookwood in the final 15 seconds of the game. Just when it looked like the Panthers might pull a win, after a years-long losing streak against the Broncos, Nick Thompkins had to return a 75-yard kickoff. So, Parkview lost 23-19. The last time Parkview High School beat Brookwood High School (7-0 in 2008) was also the last season the Parkview Panthers had a winning record, 7-4. On Friday, the two rivals meet again.
