The Lincoln County High football team traveled to Enterprise, Utah, for a non-league game to open the season against Enterprise. The Lynx lost the game, 43-12.
Lincoln County hasn’t beaten the Wolves since the 2003 season. In rain and cold, the Lynx opened the game kicking to Enterprise. On the second play from scrimmage the Wolves capitalized on an option left handing the ball up the middle for a 60-yard touchdown putting Enterprise on the board first.
On its third possession of the game, Enterprise sophomore quarterback Brandell Schumway completed a 46-yard touchdown pass to senior tight end Dallin Holt. In the single shining moment for the Lynx in the first half, Chris Florence broke free on a return pushing the ball down to the Enterprise 16 yard line. The Wolves defense held and after a fourth and nine attempt from the 15, the Wolves forced a fumble and Enterprise senior defensive lineman James Thomas recovered for the turnover. Enterprise finished the first quarter with a 21-0 lead. The Wolves added two more rushing touchdowns and a field goal in the second quarter to take a 37-0 lead into the locker room at the half.
Lincoln started the second half struggling and allowing an additional touchdown by Enterprise but after taking the kickoff they drove down the field and with 4:26 left to play in the third quarter, Preston Robbins scored in the third quarter to put the Lynx on the board. Robbins scored again with 7:43 left in the game.
Lincoln County’s next game is its home opener in a Division III Southern League game against Agassi Prep on Sept. 6. Agassi is coming off a non-league season opening 55-0 win against West Wendover.
