The Lyndon Tigers wrapped up an undefeated regular season, beating Northern Heights 36-0 in Lyndon Friday night.
Gaige Brecheisen, starting at quarterback for an injured Joe Walsh, provided a spark on both sides of the ball. Brecheisen scored rushing touchdowns of 1 and 27 yards, threw a 27 yard touchdown to Dylan Dow, and intercepted Wildcat's quarterback Tucker Litke in the endzone.
Brecheisen says he knew he would have to step up in Walsh's absence, but thought as a group they could have been a little sharper in the season finale.
