Tavious McGahee scored 3 touchdowns in less than four minutes in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach of the Chiefs as the home-standing Red Devils won 28-6. McGahee scored on runs on 10 and 17 runs after short punts, and on a 29-yard pass from Franklin Sherman after a fumble recovery. A. G. Middlebrooks scored the first TD of the night on a 3-yard run in the second quarter. McCormick scored on a 1/2-yard QB sneak in the second, although LC fans didn't think he crossed the goalline.
Fri, Sep 11HephzibahW22-16H[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
LC jumped out to quick lead on first possession, scoring the first points that the Rebels had allowed in 2009 (their third game). Penalties and turnovers again stymied our Devils, who managed a 14-9 halftime lead. A.G. Middlebrooks rushed for 146 yards and caught passes for another 30 to lead the offense. He had a 26-yard TD reception and a 45-yard TD run. The Devil Defense stopped a last-minute drive to preserve the 22-16 win.
Fri, Sep 18AbbevilleL0-21H[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
Abbeville took lead on 9-yard run with 5:15 in 2nd quarter. Devils were trying as half ended but fumbled with Panthers returning ball 80 yards for TD and 14-0 halftime lead. Abbeville QB scored again on short run with 8:49 left in the third to essentially cement the win.
Fri, Sep 25CommerceW20-12T[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
COMMERCE - Teams swapped possessions without much headway until midway the second when our Devils put together a 12-play drive that ended with Garrett Mohr scoring from one yard out on a QB sneak. The Tigers returned fire, scoring on a 20-yard pass when the Commerce receiver got behind our defenders. The PAT kick was low, leaving our Devils up 7-6. Mohr hit on passes of 35, 9, and 15 yards to give the Devils a chance to score with a second remaining, but the effort came up about 4 inches short of the goalline. Commerce took advantage of a 40-yard kickoff return and scored on a 15-yard run with 10:40 left in the third quarter. Our Devils came right back, moving down the field quickly. The big play of the drive was a 35-yard run by A. G. Middlebrooks to the 10. Unfortunately he broke his leg on the play, and his Red Devil football career is over. Two plays later, Franklin Sherman connected with Devonte Wright for 6 yards and a 13-12 lead. A run-for-2 play failed, but the Devils led with 7:31 remaining in the third. Sherman capped a 19-play, 10-minute drive with a 2-yard run with 5:03 left in the game. Walker Smith's kick put our Devils up 20-12. After forcing the Tigers to turn the ball over on downs with 3:27 left and rushing for a first down at the Tiger 25, the game looked to be all-but-out-of-reach for the home team, Lincoln's only lost fumble of the game gave the Tigers new life with 1:15 left. They quickly passed their way to the Devil 40 before the Devil Defense held firm.
Fri, Oct 2AquinasW37-0H[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
38th straight Homecoming win. Aquinas had 2-game winning streak under new coach, but were no match for the Red Devils. LC scored 1:21 into the game. Ercell Daniel led scoring with a 70 yard punt return and a 73-yard run from scrimmage, both early in the second quarter. Halftime score was 37-0, and the clock ran during the fourth period.
Fri, Oct 16Washington-WilkesW10-7T[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
LC won 10-7 on 26-yd FG in second overtime. Three FG attempts failed during regulation. LC had 250 yards and 57 plays compared to 45 yards and 32 plays for the Tigers. Four times LC came away empty after having a first down inside the Tiger 10. DeVonte Wright scored on a 6-yd run in the first OT, with the Tigers matching with a 15-yard TD pass. The Tigers were stopped in their 2nd OT try when Jathan Mickens took a sure TD pass away from the receiver before both fell to the ground in the endzone. Walker Smith booted the winning 26-yard field goal. This was LC's first overtime game using the "shootout" format (both teams with tries starting from the 15). LC leads W-W series 34-32-6.
Fri, Oct 23Hancock CentralW41-0T[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
Devils jumped to an early 14-0 lead on TD passes by Garrett Mohr, and piled on 21 in the third quarter for their first victory at the new Hancock Central gridiron. This may have been the first Red Devil game where the public address announcer was female. This was also the first non-playoff game where the referee had a microphone.
Fri, Oct 30Wilkinson CountyW10-6T[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
DEATH VALLEY - LC took lead midway 2nd quarter on Walker Smith 26 FG after pass off fake punt from Garrett Mohr to Rusty Scott continued drive. Wilkinson scored on 4-yard run after 28-yard pass to take halftime lead 6-3. Big Red scored on 10-uard pass from Franklin Sherman to Ercell Daniel with 8:01 left in third. Devil Defense played superb, holding fast Warriors to less than 150 yards and their lowest points of the season. Warriors were 7-2 after game, finishing 2nd in region. 7-A title was Devils' 7th straight, 31st in last 35 years, and 35th overall.
Fri, Nov 6Warren CountyW19-18H[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
It was one of those nights when almost nothing went right for the Red Devils. Penalties, turnovers, and poor pass defense almost gave Warren County its first win over Lincoln County since 1971. The Screaming Devils jumped out to a 12-0 lead after long passes and a 95-yard fumble return for TD. Big Red closed the gap to 12-7 at the half, but Warren County scored with 2:00 left in the third to take a 18-7 lead. The Devils came back, with Franklin Sherman scoring on a QB sneak with 11:01 to go to close to within 5. The Screaming Devils put together their best time-consuming drive of the night, moving into Devil territory and taking 5 minutes off the clock. Tavious McGahee gave the Devil faithful hope when he intercepted a pass and returned it about 50 yards to the WC 22. Steven Morris rushed for 12 before DeVonte Wright slashed in from the 10 for the go-ahead score with 5:20 left. McGahee grabbed another Screaming Devil pass on their next and final possession, and the Devil offense picked up 2 first downs to wind down the clock and secure the victory.
Fri, Nov 13TrionW14-0H[Opponent info at FFN]   [more]
Two long pass receptions by Rusty Scott led to the Devils' 14 points, and the Devil Defense bent but did not break against the Trion ball-control onslaught. The Bulldogs rushed 50 times for 119 yards, and completed 4 of 14 pass attempts for 64 yards, in running over 30 minutes off the clock. Twice the Bulldogs got within the LC 10, but both times the Devil Defense held strong and prevented points. Trion had upset 6-A champ Darlington 21-14 the week before.

Fri, Nov 27Savannah ChristianL0-7H[more]
Savannah Christian, undefeated and ranked #2, came into the game with the best defense in Class A, and the Raiders showed that reputation was valid. Six Devil turnovers, six times inside the SC 30, 1st-&-goal on the half-yard line after a blocked punt, and no LC points. LC led in yards 199-98 and first downs 8-4. SC scored on a 10-yard run after a Devil fumble at the SC 21 in the second quarter.
