For Pete Wilson, Friday night was a moment five decades in the making.
In his first game as head coach of the Monument Mountain Spartans, he earned his first career win in comeback fashion, as the Spartans topped the Pathfinder Pioneers 39-26.

In Monument’s first game since star running back Tyrell Beverly’s departure, the running game prospered.
