The Meadows didn’t have an answer for the Lynx, as Lincoln dominated the Mustangs in Las Vegas last Friday.

The Lincoln County High football team shut out Meadows last weekend by a score of 54-0.

Coach Raymond Wadsworth said, “It went really well. Our game plan worked for the most part and obviously, we were successful.”

The boys started out quickly and, right off the bat, pushed to get ahead.

Less than five minutes into the first quarter, running back Noah Smith scored the game’s first touchdown, and his brother, Landen Smith, added a two-point conversion.

Elijah Harr caught a 15-yard pass from Mason Thornock, scoring another touchdown with two minutes left in the first. Then Alex Vincent ran in another two-points. That put the Lynx up 16-0.

In the second quarter, when most damage was done, Lincoln doubled its points thanks to both the Smith boys, Thornock, Harr, and Vincent. Altogether they had four touchdowns and eight extra points from two-point conversions.

In the third quarter, Landen Smith scored the final touchdown with a 24-yard run, putting the Lynx to 54-0.

Wadsworth said, “They run a similar offense to one we have used before, so we were able to defend it because we knew the weaknesses. That really helped in the long run.”

The Lynx have won both of their league games and are played the Laughlin Cougars yesterday for their homecoming game.
