Saturday, September 15, 2007

LYNDON, Kan. -- Union-town gave No. 5-ranked Lyndon a good challenge here Friday night before coming out on the short side of a 28-18 score.

The Eagles, 0-3, led 18-13 after three quarters before Lyndon, 3-0, took control in the fourth with a pair of touchdowns.

"It was anyone's game down to the last quarter," Uniontown head coach Jim Mason said. "Our kids played well. We came out on top of our game. We let them get deep on us at the end of the first half. We had a couple of chances to maybe come out on top."

Kade Neilson scored Lyndon's first touchdown on a 13-yard run in the first quarter. Zach Mason tied it on a 30-yard run later in the period.

Shawn Pritchett scored from eight-yards out to give the Eagles their first lead, 12-6, in the second period. The Tigers took the lead at halftime on a 53-yard pass from Shea Kirsop to Quinn Kirsop and the successful PAT kick.

Drew Johnson put the Eagles ahead in the third period on a 55-yard TD reception from Travis Aikins.

Keene Niemack gave Lyndon a 21-18 lead with 3:57 left in the game on a 25-yard pass reception from Curtis Windling. The Tigers also added the two-point conversion.

Nielson sealed the game on a 13-yard TD run.
