Lynn Classical vs. Winthrop
The undefeated Winthrop Vikings came to Manning Field on Friday night to face the Lynn Classical Rams in a much-anticipated contest within conference play. Though Classical played well enough to win, Winthrop pounded out a 28-14 victory and guaranteed a share of the divisional title. The game was highlighted by a number of big plays, including an 86-yard kickoff return by Winthrop running back Reise Turransky to start the second half. That put the game at 14-0, but Classical didn’t give up, pulling within four points with 10 minutes left in the game. However, fumbles and turnovers by Classical and stout defense by Winthrop stymied any comeback attempt by the Lynn team.
Winthrop’s Zach Deeb showed up big on defense with two interceptions. For Classical, Running Back Micah Dublin scorched a typically staunch defense for more than 150 yards on the ground – including a 40-yard touchdown run.
