Lincoln Football

#2 Jackson Risch breaks through a Clayton tackler on his way to a big gain last Saturday in their home contest.

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.
