The Lindbergh Eagles jumped out to a 14-0 lead over the Washington on Friday, but could not hang on as the Patriots rallied to hand Lindbergh a 28-21 defeat.

Lindbergh opened the scoring with a 5-yard touchdown run from Josh Nute to take a 7-0 lead after the first quarter.

Then, the Eagles extended their lead when quarterback Sam Nehren hit Montrae Gooden for a 29-yard touchdown pass in the early second quarter to go up 14-0.

Washington rallied, running in a 5-yard touchdown of their own to cut the score in half. But Lindbergh responded, this time with an 11-yard touchdown run from Johsiah Serquina. However, before the halftime buzzer sounded, Washington raced for a 63-yard touchdown brought Lindbergh’s lead back to seven as the teams headed to locker rooms with the Eagles up 21-14.

Unfortunately for Lindbergh, they were unable to keep their momentum going in the second half. First, Washington scored on a 9-yard pass play to knot the score at 21-21 through the third.

Then, in the fourth, Washington was able to push through another rushing touchdown, this one from 1 yard out, to secure a 28-21 win.

With the loss, Lindbergh falls to 4-3 overall and 3-3 in the South Puget Sound League. They host Foss at 7 p.m. Friday at Renton Memorial Stadium.
