There is absolutely no doubt about it. Lincoln County's game this week in Abbeville will be much, much tougher than last Friday's thrashing.
Abbeville has not lost since last season's opener, and is picked by many to repeat as Class A Champion. The well-coached Panthers have defeated our Red Devils three straight years. Lincoln County leads the series 6-3-0.
Since Abbeville is LC head coach Larry Campbell's hometown, he especially wants to win this game. A last second field goal effort last year appeared to have tied the game before the officials waves it off as no good, leaving a 24-21 Panther win standing.
Abbeville lost good players to graduation, but they pulled a minor upset of larger Chester last Friday behind a good running back and a freshman QB.
