This Friday's games will determine the match-ups for next week's 7-A play-in games. Lincoln County and other "B" teams will be at home.
Lincoln County needs a win over Aquinas this Friday in Augusta to earn a spot in the Region 7-A championship game the following week.
Last Friday was Homecoming night in Lincolnton, and since 1972 that game has ended in a Lincoln County victory.
With Hurricane Matthew threatening, Javon Reid passed for 165 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another as Lincoln County whipped Hancock Central 34-20.

Running the Misbehavior Out
A few years back, two players were fighting to settle a disagreement. Coach Larry Campbell didn't put up with such lack of discipline, so he had them start running - in full pads and helmet. After several laps he allowed them to remove their helmets on the hot day. After a while longer, he let them drop their pads. After about an hour total, he stopped them and asked if they would be fighting any more. "No sir" came the quick, polite answer from each of them. Problem solved, and they got in some exercise as well.
A football squad was not the first sports team fielded by Lincolnton High. A track team was formed in 1921, the year before Lincolnton first appeared on a gridiron.
