Lincoln County, playing some of its best football of the year, came up just short against #3 Athens Academy Friday night as the Spartans won 14-0.
The win puts AA in the driver's seat for the 7-A title, with the Devils to battle with Warren County and GMC for the three remaining playoff spots. Warren County surprised previously undefeated and #10 GMC 21-14 Friday night.
The loss extends the Devils' losing streak to 4 games, their longest since 1971. But things look to improve from this point forward as Lincoln has completed the toughest part of its schedule, against four Top 5 opponents. This coming week Aquinas (1-4) visits Buddy Bufford Field; the Irish lost to Social Circle 39-14.
