CAMBRIDGE CITY, IND. — For almost 12 minutes, football teams from both Lincoln and Wes-Del had a hard time finding the end zone at Cambridge City.
Wes-Del showed the Golden Eagles where it was with about 36 seconds left in the opening frame and the Golden Eagles got selfish.
Lincoln would not allow the Warriors back in, scoring 42 unanswered points as the Golden Eagles earned their first victory of the season 42-6 over the visiting Warriors.
Tyler Brown scored three times and ran for 174 yards, leading the Golden Eagle offense that scored just twice in Week 1’s 28-13 loss to South Decatur.
“It was great. Our line stepped it up from last week. Last week was kind of rough,” Brown said. “We stepped it up and they really got on people this week, and we were rough to start out, but we put it together at the end.”
Brown responded to Wes-Del’s first-quarter touchdown with a 41-yard run with just :08.1 seconds left in the opening frame and added a 6-yard run in the second quarter and a 3-yard carry in the fourth.
The 5-foot-9 senior was also instrumental in the other scores, rushing for 99 of his yards in the first half, including carries of 41 and 29 yards — the latter setting up a 4-yard score from Grant Renforth with 1:29 left in the second quarter.
