Texarkana Gazette - - SPORTS - —From Staff Re­ports

LIN­DEN, Texas—Lin­den-Kil­dare sur­vived a weather de­lay and a DeKalb rally to post a 47-34 vic­tory on Fri­day night.

Af­ter go­ing into half­time with a com­fort­able 26-6 lead, the Tigers watched their ad­van­tage shrink as DeKalb scored 28 points in the sec­ond half.

Ti­mon Proby scored for the Bears first in the third quar­ter with a 23-yard rush and Ja­mar Vaughn fol­lowed suit later in the quar­ter with an 11-yard run.

DeKalb would score two more in the fourth quar­ter with runs from Kole Doo­ley and Proby, but it couldn’t keep the Tigers off the score­board in its come­back bid.

Ja­cob Owen an­swered back for the Tigers with a 41-yard touch­down pass to Red Tyson and a 61-yard bomb to Ty Pat­ter­son.

The first half, how­ever, was mostly Lin­den-Kil­dare.

The Tigers scored the game’s first points when Owen found Mar­quise Jones on a 30-yard strike, and threw for three more in the first two quar­ters with two TD passes to Pat­ter­son.

Owen also rushed for a score in the sec­ond quar­ter and fin­ished the game with 280 yards on 15-of-22 pass­ing and six touch­downs.

LaDavion John­son com­pli­mented the Tigers’ pass­ing game well with 175 yards on the ground on 25 at­tempts, but failed to reach the end zone. Pat­ter­son caught six passes for 140 yards and four touch­downs, while Tyson and Jones each found pay­dirt as well.

DeKalb’s Proby fin­ished with 166 yards on 16 at­tempts and two scores and fel­low run­ning back Doo­ley also had two touch­downs and 56 yards rush­ing.
