Colton Lindsey led a second-half comeback for Christian Heritage Academy, which upset No. 5-ranked Oklahoma Christian School 20-11 on Friday night in a District 2A-2 football game.
Unranked CHA (5-3 overall, 4-1 district) trailed by 11 points going into the third quarter, but Lindsey drew the Crusaders within four points with 31-yard touchdown run. Joseph Lemieux gave CHA the lead for good later in the quarter on a 2-yard TD run, and then Lindsey added an insurance score with a 97-yard pass to Gabe LittleJim.
Oklahoma Christian (5-3, 2-2) led 11-0 at halftime. The Saints scored all of their points in the first quarter on Jack Markmiller's 25-yard field goal and Will McKinnis' 41-yard TD pass to Jared Goff. OCS edged CHA in total yards, 404-389, but the Saints were hampered by four interceptions.
