Lynx coach Rich Ottley said the team dominated White Pine in nearly all aspects. “We scored two touchdowns in every quarter. Preston Robbins led the team with several touchdowns and had three interceptions, including one for a score. He had a big game.” Unofficially Robbins had 103 yards rushing which gives him 475 yards rushing on the season. His three interceptions puts him right in the middle of the leaders in southern Nevada along with six other players with the same number.
Quarterback McClain O’Connor was 5-for-16 passing, and two touchdowns. Ottley said one was a short 3-yarder to Mike Wood, and a 45-yarder to Robbins. O’Connor had a 28-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and returned punt 65-yards for another score in the third quarter.
“We moved the ball well, made the stops defensively, they only got down to the 30-yard line once. Our biggest battle was we had a lot of penalties,” Ottley said.
The game was not delayed by the rain that struck in Lincoln County the same night. Ottley said, “We just missed it. The game ended, I visited with the kids a little bit, then the lightning and rain began about five minutes later.” They just got on the bus and came home.
Lincoln (2-2, 1-1) faced The Meadows (3-2, 2-0) this Thursday. All the games involving Clark County schools were played on Thursday this week because of the Jewish observance on Friday of Yom Kippur.
