Pella Christian Eagles outlast Lynnville-Sully Hawks in opener
PELLA — The Class A Lynnville-Sully Hawks invaded the Class 1A Pella Christian Eagles’ territory Friday, and even though the Hawks put a scare into the Eagles, the home team was able to come away victorious, 17-12.
After the teams traded punts early on, Pella Christian was able to strike first on a 70-yard touchdown run by Dillion Branderhorst on a designed end around. Branderhorst took the ball around the right side and was untouched down the sideline on his way to the end zone.
The Hawks had a brief answer when Bailee Samson had a strong return on the ensuing kickoff to give the Hawks great field position. However, a fumble on a designed option put the ball back in the hands of the home team, killing Lynnville-Sully’s drive before it got started.
