Lindbergh beats Renton, stays undefeated
The Lindbergh Eagles football team remained unbeaten this week with a 24-13 win over Renton at Renton Memorial Stadium.
Renton scored first, with a 27-yard field goal from Zach Hasson and took their 3-0 lead into the second quarter.
In the second, Lindbergh quarterback Devon Jackson kept the ball himself for a 1-yard touchdown run to give the Eagles a 7-3 advantage over the Indians at the half.
Renton opened the scoring n the second half as well, with Ernie Davis taking the ball in from the 1-yard line to make the score 10-7.
But Lindbergh answered quickly with Daniel Wiitanan returning the ensuing kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown of his own. The point-after attempt was blocked, but the third quarter ended with the Eagles up 13-10.
Renton tied up the game in the fourth, on a 36-yard field goal from Hasson.
But Lindbergh took over from there, with Ryan Hoover connecting with Khalil Burton for 22-yard touchdown pass and then Jackson running in his second of the game, to ensure the 25-13 win.
The win moves the 6-0 Eagles to third on the Max Preps ranking of Class 2A football programs in the state. They are scheduled to play at Highline on Friday.
Renton is now 3-3 on the year. The Indians welcome Kennedy Catholic to Renton Memorial Stadium Friday in the high school's homecoming game.
