Lindbergh football stays perfect, sets up battle this week with Kennedy
The Lindbergh Eagles football team remained undefeated with a 47-20 win over Franklin on Thursday, setting up a winner-take-all battle this Thursday with Kennedy.
Quarterback Tyrell Shavers and wide receiver Khalil Burton connected for three touchdowns during the game.
Lindbergh got the scoring started early, opening up a 27-0 lead in the first quarter on a 25-yard touchdown pass to Burton, followed by a 35-yard inception returned for a touchdown by Brandon Mills. Burton then caught a 3-yard pass-and-run touchdown. All three were backed by point-after kicks from Daniel Wiitenan.
Lindbergh closed out the first quarter with a 14-yard run from D'Angelo Faust.
The second quarter was more of the same form the Eagles, with Wiitenan taking the ball 4 yards for a touchdown and then the third touchdown pass from Shavers to Burton, this one 20 yards to give Lindbergh a 41-0 lead at the break.
In the third, Devon Jackson picked up a 55-yard touchdown run for the Eagles.
The Quakers were able to score a touchdown in the third and two more in the fourth, but the damage was already done.
The win moved Lindbergh to a perfect 8-0 this season, with a 5-0 record in the Seamount League. Kennedy is 5-3 overall, but also 5-0 in the Seamount.
The two teams square off at 7 p.m. Thursday night at Renton Memorial Stadium.
