Posted

LYNN — The Lynn Bears supplied plenty of offensive fireworks for the homecoming crowd as they overpowered the Shoals Christian Flame 57-20 at David Posey Memorial Field.

With the victory, Lynn moved to 9-0 on the year for the first time since the 2000 season.

The Bears put the game away early, scoring on their first five possessions, and they were once again deep in Flame territory when time ran out in the first half. Lynn was clicking on all cylinders on the ground and through the air, gaining 205 rushing yards, and hitting 5 of 6 passes for an additional 105 yards, all before intermission, as they raced to a 44-6 halftime lead.

Ethan Delay got things started for Lynn, scoring on a five-yard run to cap a 52-yard drive to open the scoring, then adding another TD on a 60-yard scamper on the Bear's second series. Delay would later notch another touchdown on the ground, as well as a 60-yard reception for a score in the second half. He finished with 86 yards rushing and 75 yards receiving and four touchdowns. Quarterback Noah Jackson added 75 yards on the ground and one touchdown.

Brandon Hill came off the bench at quarterback before halftime and totaled seven completions in eight attempts for 153 yards and three touchdowns on the night. Cameron Baldy and Luke Chambless were on the receiving end of two of Hill's scoring throws. The Bears also added a touchdown on special teams, blocking a Shoals Christian punt in the second quarter that was recovered in the end zone by Carson Legg.

The scoring onslaught by the Bears overshadowed strong performances by Flame running backs Christian Martin and Michael Oakley, who rushed for 121 and 109 yards, respectively.

Lynn will complete its regular season next week as they travel to Decatur Heritage and attempt to claim an undefeated Class 1A, Region 7 title.
