DOUBLE SPRINGS - What turned out to be the coldest football night so far this season also turned out to be an intense game when Lynn high-stepped over Winston County High for a win in double overtime Friday night, Nov. 1.
The tough and tumble first quarter involving a quarterback sack by Lynn Bear Cruz Cheatham and a WCHS Yellow Jacket interception by James Abbott ended up scoreless. The Bears made a 65-yard drive between first and second quarters to turn the scoreboard bulbs on with a 5-yard play touchdown. Their PAT was no good, leaving it at 6-0.
