On August 31 and September 1, because of heavy rain and lightning, the football season opener was a two-day manslaughter against Archbishop Curley. Quarterback Ryan Leyh, threw an interception with a total of 151 yards and two touchdowns, along with 57 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown. Wide receiver Mason Wills caught a 62-yard touchdown. Adding to the highlight reel, running back Jackson Ambush had two goal-line touchdowns.

Leyh said, “Being 1-0 is a confidence builder. This game showed what we did well but also what we need to work. We need to keep working and be smarter throughout the season.”

One of the biggest takeaways from the game was how well the offensive line was blocking, for Leyh and for the running backs. The running backs accumulated a combined 189 rushing yards.

On defense, Archbishop had multiple penalties and the defense forced four fumbles.

“The whole team was playing as one. We had a lot of stops. We only had one really big mistake which capitalized off of but other than that, our defense was amazing,” said Junior defensive lineman Dustin Keith.

Coach O’Connor said, “Because we have so many lowerclassmen, this gives them confidence in what they’re doing.”

Friday, September 7, Linganore will take on Edgewood at 7:00 pm at home. With the fans in place, it will be a great opening game. To find more reports on the game, check out maxpreps.com. Follow Lancer Media @LHSJournalism and sports editor, @Jason_Byrd2021.
