Wiitanen scores three as Lindbergh beats Steilacoom to go to 2-0
Lindbergh's Daniel Wiitanen scored three touchdowns for the Eagles Friday, including twice in the fourth quarter to propel Lindbergh to a 26-21 victory over Steilacoom and 2-0 start.
Wiitanen opened the scoring for the Eagles with a 24-yard run in the second quarter to give the Eagles a 6-0 lead.
Then, quarterback Tyrell Shavers took the ball 20 yards himself for Lindbergh's second touchdown and a 12-lead.
But Steilacoom rallied back, scoring once before halftime to make it 12-6 Eagles and then scored two more times, first in the third quarter and then to open the fourth to take a 21-12 lead.
All of Steilacoom's touchdowns were scored by Brian Thomas.
But the Eagles did not give up and Wiitanen picked up his second touchdown of the day off a 36-yard run to make it 21-18 (point-after pass failed).
Later in the quarter, Wiitanen took the ball 24 yards to pay dirt and the Eagles converted for two points on a pass from Shavers to Branden Mills for a 26-21 lead and the win.
Lindbergh (2-0) stays on the road this week, taking on Evergreen (1-1) at 7 p.m. Friday. The Eagles' home opener is set for Sept. 27 at Renton Memorial Stadium.
