Beau Allen put on a show in the Holy War between Lexington Catholic and Lexington Christian Academy. KSR was there to see it all.
The future Kentucky quarterback was almost perfect through the air, completing 24-of-28 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns, including a 31-yard dime that tied the game up in the fourth quarter after the Knights trailed by two touchdowns. He also rushed for 142 yards and three touchdowns, including a score from 43 yards out.
Unfortunately, it was not enough for the Knights to win. LCA’s Mattie Lebryk stripped the ball from Allen with two minutes to play. In less than a minute LCA marched down the field, scored a touchdown and completed a two-point conversion to take the lead. Allen got the Knights into field goal range with four seconds to play, but the 33-yard attempt missed.
Allen finished the night with five touchdowns and 374 total yards, yet LCA left with the 43-42 victory.
