Legacy gets emotional win over Prairie View

Legacy vs. Prairie View First Half Extended Highlights

WESTMINSTER - Legacy football is #LegacyStrong. On Friday, the team earned an emotional 29-6 victory over visiting Prairie View.

There wasn't an open seat in the entire stadium, in fact, it quickly became standing room only as the Lightning prepared to host the ThunderHawks in its homecoming matchup.

It was evident from the opening kickoff that Legacy had come to play. Quarterback Alec Lewis led the offense down the field and to the end zone for the opening drive. His dart to Anthony Lyle put the Lightning on the board, and they would take a 7-0 lead with eight minutes remaining in the first quarter.

Lyle was nowhere near finished. He returned a punt back 55 yards for a touchdown to give his team a 14-0 lead going into halftime. He would score one more touchdown in the fourth quarter to lead the Lightning to a 29-6 final over their opponent.

Senior Isaac Campbell scored the lone touchdown for the Thunderhawks.

The Legacy homecoming football game also served as a tribute to Sunday's bus crash victims. You can read more about the moment of silence for Kari Chopper,  a balloon release and visit from the Denver Broncos by clicking here.
