Will Culverwell rushed for 123 yards and scored four touchdowns on 10 carries Friday, and Lincoln took care of business with a 67-6 homecoming victory over Laughlin.
“It was a little bit of a blowout game, but the kids played really well and we got everybody in to play,” said coach Rich Ottley. “The subs that came in, came in and executed the offense just as well as the first strain of kids.”
Laughlin had no answer for the Lynx running attack, led by Culverwell and Cody Thornock. The latter ran for 119 yards and two touchdowns on just six carries . “(Culverwell) ran our off-tackle power play exceptionally well,” Ottley said. “(Thornock) got our sweeps, readied his blocks and did a good job.”
Zach Rowe added two touchdowns on two carries and 72 yards rushing. Alex Samson also had touchdown run, and McClain O’Connor scored off a 78-yard punt return.
“Defensively, after the first few minutes of the game, we settled in and tackled well and just did a good job,” Ottley added. “We’re just trying to get ready for our game this weekend against Agassi, which has a lot riding on the outcome.”
The win put Lincoln at 8-1 overall and 6-1 in the Division III Southern League. They were tied with both Needles and White Pine in the league standings, which determines seedings for the playoffs. The Lynx faced a strong Agassi Prep team (6-2, 5-2) yesterday at home for their regular season finale.
