After getting first win last week, Celina looks to start streak
Coming off a narrow win over Kenton, the Celina football team has some momentum for the first time this season. The chance to build on it comes in a matchup of Bulldogs as Western Buckeye League rival Elida comes to Celina Stadium on Friday.
