Lyndon earns sub-state matchup

LYNDON — The Lyndon Tigers earned a trip to sub-state football after beating the Centralia Panthers 26-14 Friday night. With both teams being held scoreless in the first quarter, a strong second quarter was key for the Tigers, who led 12-0 at the half. This margin would hold true for the Tigers, with both teams scoring eight in the third and both scoring six in the fourth.

The Tigers’ running game was unstoppable, amounting 212 total yards. Senior Luke Detwiler led the team in rushing with 88 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries. Ethan Edington followed closely with 81 yards, followed by Darian Massey with 31. Dustin Tobler had just eight yards rushing but scored a touchdown.

The passing game for the Tigers was not as strong, with Massey throwing 3 for 5 for 22 total yards and one interception.

Defensively, the Tigers had multiple players contribute. Tobler led in tackles with 16, five unassisted and 11 assisted. He also recorded the only sack on the night. Tobler was followed in tackles by Micah Hardman, 14; Edington, 13 and Miles Kitselman, 12. Edington had unbelievable ball presence on defense, recording four interceptions with one being a pick-six.

The Tigers will travel to Olpe 7 p.m. Friday to face the Eagles on their home field in sub-state competition. The two teams played earlier in the season, Sept. 18, with the Eagles coming away with the win, 13-7.
