Lindbergh Pulls Out Last-Minute Win Over Mehlville

Flyers’ Jordan Goodman throws 70-yard touchdown pass to Grant Krueger with 1:32 left to lead Lindbergh to heart-stopping win.

The Lindbergh Flyers pulled out one of the most exciting wins of the 2011 season Friday night at Flyers Field when senior Jordan Goodman threw a 70-yard touchdown pass to teammate *Grant Krueger with just over a minute left in the game to lead the Flyers to a 20-15 victory over visiting Mehlville.

The Panthers had just taken the lead moments earlier when backup quarterback Brendan Moore scored on a 1-yard sneak and teammate Patrick Partee added a two-point conversion run to give Mehlville a 15-14 advantage.

But Lindbergh pulled off a near miracle with Goodman’s heave to Krueger that probably saved the Flyers' season, and gives them a shot at making the state playoffs if they can defeat SLUH next Friday night.

Mehlville was eliminated from playoff contention with the loss.

*This story has been changed for accuraccy. Grant Krueger scored the winning touchdown for Lindbergh. The story previous reported it was his brother, Garrett Krueger.

I was at the game last night and I'm PRETTY SURE it was Grant Krueger, #20, who ran for the winning touch down....I'm his aunt so I KNOW!!! Please get your facts checked!!

by the way, Garrett is a sophomore #11 and he did score a touchdown earlier in the game as well!

My apologies Aunt Janet! You're right, it was Grant that scored the game-winning touchdown. I got the names mixed up. That's a terrible piece of reporting on my part. I saw the play and then there was all this commotion & excitement and I heard the PA guy say "Touchdown #$*#) Krueger!" I thought it was Garrett. I should've asked to be sure. Either way, great job by both those Krueger boys last night! And great win for Lindbergh!

I was on pins and needles waiting for this report to come out. What a heart breaking loss for Mehlville. I can see how easily it would be to mix up names considering the intensity of the game on and off the field. Very well written article for both teams. Thanks- Shannon Moore
