AKRON &8212; The Linden High School Patriots recorded their third win of the season Friday night against Akron High School, but head coach Andro Williams said the win wasn&8217;t as pretty as the 52-36 margin sounds.

The Patriots did produce offensively during the game, however, producing 513 total yards. Maurice Tate led the team on the ground, picking up 184 of the group&8217;s 377 yards on the ground and five touchdowns.

The group was four-for-13 passing with one interception.
