BROOKHAVEN — A wild game in Lincoln County saw St. Aloysius and West Lincoln combine for 94 points, but it was the Flashes who put up a season best 56 in taking the 56-38 Region 4-1A win Friday.

The Flashes win, though, was dampened by an injury to senior receiver Chip Donald. Donald, who was hit in the back late in the second quarter, spent 30 minutes on the ground before being escorted off the field by ambulance. No word was given on his condition.

The Flashes (4-5, 4-4) took control of the winless Bears by rolling out to a 49-22 lead after three quarters. The Flashes piled up 400 yards rushing led by Chris Lewis, who ran for 139 yards and two touchdowns on runs of 34 and 3 yards. He also tossed a 15-yard TD pass to Clayton Holmes.
