Hancock Central came in much improved over recent seasons, but it was too little to face our Devils. Lincoln led 21-3 at half, and the mercy rule went into effect in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs were held to negative rushing yardage.

Rain stopped just before kickoff, leaving the field a quagmire. Devils scored almost at will in the first half, with Beale, Jennings, and Darrell Norman scoring and Tarver adding a 33-yd FG for a 30-0 halftime lead. Norman scored again on a 53-yd run in the third to kick-in the "mercy" rule. Hancock's TD came against LC JV team.

Very poor officiating. Not unfair, just bad. Called 25 penalties for 200 yards against both teams -- had problems walking off yards right.

Homecoming - game moved up one day due to expected heavy rains on Friday night. Devils scored 27 in 2nd quarter for 41-0 halftime lead. Second half played under mercy rules.

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.

Homecoming - you don't want to be on LC's guest for Homecoming - this game marks the 39th Homecoming win in a row. The Devils scored early and often to grab a 21-0 first quarter and 35-0 halftime lead before the clock started running in the second half. Tyler Banks caught 7 passess for 127 yards and 1 TD while Ercell Daniel rushed 5 times for 95 yards with 3 TDs. LC totaled around 420 yards offense.

Lincoln County struggled offensively with leading rusher Craig Jones unavailable due to an injury. The Devils turned two Hancock turnovers into touchdowns in the first 5 minutes of the second half to take a 28-7 lead. The final Bulldog scored came in the last minute against LC subs. The previous week Hancock had defeated Twiggs County 66-6, with their leading rusher scoring several TDs; our Devils did not allow him to score.

Devils played many inexperienced players as they nursed some injuries. Devils went up 14-0 early. Hancock controlled ball much of game. Their points came late in game.
