Linden-Kildare outlasts delay, DeKalb for 47-34 win
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.
