Lincoln County rolls past The Meadows

Lincoln County scored the first time it touched the ball on Friday night with Noah Smith returning a punt for a touchdown.

The Lynx didn’t slow down after that.

Lincoln County scored three touchdowns in each of the first two quarters and rolled to a 49-12 road victory over The Meadows.

Smith’s 65-yard punt return set the tone, and Lincoln County unleashed a variety of weapons after that. Four rushers — Alex Vincent, Cody Zile, Dean Ottley, and Kamdon Lewis — found the end zone. Vincent was the game’s leading rusher with 60 yards on five carries and was sharp passing the ball with limited opportunities, completing all three pass attempts for 56 yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, the Lynx (3-0) stifled the Mustangs for much of the game. The Mustangs ran 20 times for 37 yards against a stout Lincoln County defense. Kicker Mathew Hafen turned in one of the game’s more impressive plays when he easily split the upright with a 40-yard field goal that put Lincoln County ahead 49-0.

The Meadows (1-2) had just 10 players dressed for the 8-man game. Quarterback Michael Corrigan finished the game completing 7 of 17 passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns. He completed 6 of his final 7 passes on two second-half touchdown drives. His favorite target was Peter Hoskins, who caught three passes for 44 yards. Trey Covell (two receptions, 36 yards) and Matthew Aaron (two receptions, 22 yards) were the recipients of Corrigan’s two touchdown passes.
