Linsly Wins Regular-Season Finale

Posted: Updated:

The Linsly Cadets defeated Kiski Prep 27-20 on Saturday afternoon at Lockhart Alumni Field, to finish the season at 4-6.

The Oparanozie brothers were on display.

Chimechi, the sophomore brother of Chinelo, scored Linsly's first touchdown on a one-yard run in the first quarter. The senior Chinelo hauled in a Jameson Murray two-yard pass and scored his 30th career touchdown. He finished the game with 130 yards on the ground, and ended his brilliant career with over 2,300 yards rushing.

The Cadets took a 14-7 lead into halftime.

Senior running back Brooks Simmons added a 14-yard touchdown run, and Murray connected with Zak Kriechbaum for a flea-flicker touchdown in third quarter to increase the lead to 27-7.

Kiski mounted a late comeback to make it close.
