WOODBURY — A back and fourth affair between the Webb School and Cannon County on Friday night saw the Lions fend off the Feet in a 28-21 thriller.
Webb matched Cannon County’s point total in every quarter except the second.
Webb got on the board first with a 41-yard touchdown strike from Nathan Brisebois.
Cannon County answered just before the end of the quarter on a 51-yard run.
The Lions went on to take the 14-7 lead in the second quarter on another huge play, coming on a 49-yard touchdown pass.
That lead ballooned to 21-7 on another big play in the third.
With 5:22 left in the period, the Lions broke loose on a 35-yard touchdown run, to give the hosts a two-touchdown lead.
It wasn’t until Webb’s Gage Lemaster blocked a punt that was recovered in the end zone that Webb got some momentum back on its side.
Cannon County tacked on one more score after milking much of the fourth quarter away on a short, two-yard run.
Webb answered in short order on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Brisebois.
In total, Cannon County’s Ryan Perkins was the driving force in the Lion offense, churning out 244 yards on 26 carries.
Webb’s Justus Haggard totaled 19 yards on seven carries.
Brisebois connected on 14 of 23 passing attempts for 192 yards and a pair of scores.
Webb sits idle this week but will return to action on Sept. 23 at Grace Christian.
