The Flyers maintained a 7-7 tie well into the 4th quarter, but fell with just a few minutes left in the game.
The score was supposed to be much more lopsided. They weren’t supposed to have the ball with two minutes left and a chance to win the game. But that’s where the Lindbergh Flyers found themselves Friday night in their district opener at Parkway South thanks to an impressive defensive effort that kept the underdogs in the game from start to finish. So when his offense couldn’t put together a game-winning drive and they suffered a heart-breaking 10-7 loss to end their season, Lindbergh coach Tom Beauchamp couldn’t find a negative thing to say. “The kids came to play, they played their hearts out and gave it everything they had,” Beauchamp said. “I have no complaints or gripes. Our kids played with everything they had. “They have a lot of …

Here's how it all will start shaking out: Friday (all games at 7 p.m.) You can search the entire playoff bracket by going to the Missouri State High School …

One fumble and two interceptions hurt the Flyers in a 14-13 loss to the Tigers at Oakville High School.
After nearly two hours of storms, administrators and coaches decided Oakville and Lindbergh would play football Friday night. But the rain didn’t stop Tiger fans as they came out in force, cheering their team to a 14-13 win over Lindbergh at Oakville High School. “It’s crazy to wait that long, but it’s what we all decided on doing,” Lindbergh coach Tom Beauchamp said. “Going home and restarting all tomorrow you don’t know what’s going to happen.
