7th grade football
Lincoln suffers 1st loss vs. Warsaw
The Lincoln seventh grade football team lost 14-12 to Warsaw Lakeview on Tuesday night, marking its first loss of the season.
After giving up a touchdown to the Tigers on their opening drive, quarterback David Bacon answered for the Rockies (8-1) on a 65-yard touchdown run. Trailing 14-6 at the start of the fourth quarter, the Rockies defense stuffed Warsaw on a fourth down, and Bacon answered again, finding running back Colten Schuler on a screen pass. Schuler ripped through the Tigers defense en route to a 78-yard touchdown reception. With a little over 20 seconds remaining, though, the Tigers stuffed the Rockies’ 2-point conversion attempt and sealed the victory.
The Rockies begin the NELMSC tournament next Tuesday night at Warsaw Edgewood.
