Homecoming Week!

Week six in the Interscholastic League was full of excitement as Lincoln, Northeast and Central all hosted Homecoming games.

The Blue Tigers opened their brand new blue turf field to a sold-out crowd of 2,500-plus fans as they defeated the East Bears 27-7 to secure their 3rd straight IL Championship. Junior QB Howard Brown rushed for 3 touchdowns in the game.

The Central Blue Eagles also won on Homecoming, defeating the Southeast Knights 36-22 to improve to 2-4. The Blue Eagles were led by QB Walter Taylor, as well as solid defensive and special teams play, as Central scored on both an interception return for a TD and a kickoff return for a TD.
