The Lindbergh football team won its fifth straight, beating Renton 38-24 Friday night.

The Eagles’ (5-1 overall, 4-0 Seamount) only loss of the season came as a forfeit due to numbers in the opener against West Seattle.

Lindbergh opened the scoring with a 58-yard touchdown run by Daniel Wiitenan in the first quarter. It was one of two touchdowns in the game for Wiitanen, who finished the game with 250 yards on 19 carries.

Renton (3-3, 2-1) answered with a 25-yard field goal from Uriel Gonzalez in the second quarter, but Lindbergh answered swiftly with an 84-yard touchdown pass from Tyrell Shavers to Cam Callen and an 18-yard field goal from Derrick Holt.

The Eagles’ D’Angelo Faust brought back the opening kickoff of the second half 93 yards for a touchdown to increase Lindbergh’s lead to 24-3.

At that point, the Indians scored 13 straight points on a touchdown run from Da’ssaun Sauls and a Sauls to Elijah Clayton touchdown.

Wiitanen pushed the game back out of reach with a 99-yard touchdown run in the fourth. Callen returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown in the quarter. Renton’s Isaiah Mahoney scored on a four-yard run in the fourth.
