Linsly Wins OT Thriller

Posted: Updated:

The Linsly Cadets used an overtime two-point conversion from Chimechi Oparanozie to stun Gilmour Academy 43-42 at Lockhart Alumni Field.

Linsly won the toss in overtime and deferred to Gilmour, who scored on the first play of overtime. The Lancers kicked the PAT to lead by seven 43-25.

Linsly's Jay Mascara scored his third touchdown of the game on a six-yard run, before Oparanozie's conversion touched off a huge celebration.

The victory snapped the Lancers' seven-game winning streak, while Linsly has won five straight to improve to 7-2. The Cadets wrap up the regular-season next Saturday by hosting the Landmark Eagles(2-6).
