Posted

Waterloo built an early lead and held off a late Lynn rally for a 30-28 victory over the Bears Friday night in Lauderdale County.

The Cougars took a 16-0 first-quarter lead and led 22-6 in the third quarter before Lynn mounted a comeback. Brandon Hill returned a kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown and the Bears got a 2-point conversion from Micah Cagle to cut the gap to 22-14. Lynn tied the game at 22-22 late in the quarter after a 23-yard run by Hill and another 2-point conversion.

Waterloo grabbed a 30-22 lead in the fourth quarter. Lynn answered with a 16-yard touchdown run by Griffin Lynn, but the 2-point conversion failed, leaving the Bears trailing by two points.

Lynn had one last chance after stopping Waterloo on its last drive. The Bears reached midfield before an interception sealed the win for the Cougars.

Hill finished the game 4 of 9 passing for 122 yards and a touchdown. Jacob Rivera had one catch for 76 yards and a touchdown and Gavin Darty had two catches for 39 yards.

Carson Legg rushed for 101 yards on 12 carries and Griffin Lynn had 62 yards on four carries.

Defensively, Griffin Lynn had eight tackles while both Evan Lamb and Legg had six tackles, including two tackles for loss.

Lynn (2-3) hosts Berry in a key region game next week.
