In the classic battle for honey, the Lincoln Hornets came up against the Clayton Bears last Saturday at home.
From the kickoff, Lincoln got off to a fast start and never let up on the gas.
The Hornets stung first with a 20-yard gallop from Nathan Lucas. Justin Rowekamp’s run for the two point conversion would give Lincoln an 8-0 lead.
Clayton wouldn’t have much of an answer for a potent Lincoln team and were essentially shut out from the game for a large portion.
Jackson Risch would take a 15-yard hand off up the field for another touchdown and two point conversion from Lucas extended the lead to 16-0 in the first quarter.
In the second quarter the Hornets started how it started the first quarter, with a Lucas touchdown run and a Rowekamp two-point conversion and the lead became 24-0.
Lucas and Rowekamp would each score another touchdown through the game to extend the lead to 40-0 heading into the fourth quarter.
Clayton wouldn’t mount a miracle comeback, but it did finally manage to get down the field and put some points on the board to avoid a shut out.
The Hornets gained 394 yards of total offense, 131 in the air and 263 via the run.
Risch lead Lincoln in yards with 126 with a touchdown, while Lucas had three touchdowns and 99 yards gained.
Clayton was able to gain some ground, but the Hornets swarmed them constantly to prevent the Bears from getting anything going.
