The Linn-Mar football team had their first win of the season against the very team that began its four-game losing streak.
The Lions beat Washington 24-21, after four consecutive losses, the first of which being Washington's victory over Linn-Mar in the 4A playoffs last season, according to the Iowa High School Athletic Association.
"Everybody knows we've got a little bit of bad blood with Washington with that postseason loss last year," said quarterback Rhys Davis to Metro Sports Report. "I think we all had a personal score to settle."
Junior Austin Wolter scored the winning field goal in a heated overtime, despite limping off the field after a player's helmet collided with his shin in the first quarter.
