7th grade football
Lincoln closes with loss to Whitko
The Lincoln seventh grade football team’s season came to an end Tuesday after Whitko defeated the Rockies 16-8 in the semifinals of the NELMSC tournament. The Rockies (9-2) drew first blood on a 3-yard Tristen McMillen touchdown run after quarterback David Bacon rumbled 56 yards on a keeper, but Whitko responded with two touchdowns and was able to hold the Rockies scoreless in the second half.
The loss ended an outstanding season in which the Rockies won their first eight games and handed rival Northwood its only loss of the season.
