Juanita beats Lindbergh in overtime, 24-21 | Prep Football

The Lindbergh Eagles never buckled. They got the ball with four minutes and 51 seconds, with good field position and down by six points. The fans looked confident. Lindbergh coach Dominic Yarrignton looked confident. Most importantly, the Lindbergh players looked confident that their senior quarterback Jake Allie could lead them to a score. And Allie did just that, completing seven passes and commanding his Eagles on a 52-yard drive that ended with a touchdown and 23 seconds left on the clock. But the Sept. 26 game wasn’t over yet. Juanita blocked the extra point and then beat Lindbergh in overtime 24-21.
