Tigers vs. Wildcats: Lyndon delivers fourth shutout of season

In a scrap between Tigers and Wildcats, the Lyndon High School football team took to a muddy home field Friday night for their fourth shutout of the season, downing Northern Heights 36-0. The win set up the Tigers to face the Wildcats at home again this Friday in regional playoffs.

“It was a solid win for us,” said Lyndon head coach Rod Stallbaumer. “Northern Heights is very well coached and has a good team. They made the playoffs for a reason.”

The coach said the Tigers’ strong defense kept the Wildcats out of the end zone in some key situations.

“I thought for the second week in a row we made some nice stands defensively,” Stallbaumer said. “We lost the field position battle in the first quarter and struggled to get going offensively, and the defense got some crucial turnovers to help us build a lead.”

The coach predicted Friday’s playoff game against Northern Heights would be a bigger test for both teams.

“I think both teams played it pretty close to the vest in this first match-up and it will be a very big game next week,” Stallbaumer said. “We’re expecting a battle.”
