Golden Eagles move on to semifinal
May 27, 2014Tri-Eastern Conference
Lincoln got a lead, and the Golden Eagle defense took care of the rest.
The Golden Eagles opened Class 2A Sectional 41 with a 3-0 win over Northeastern on Union County’s softball diamond.
Lincoln advances to today’s 5 p.m. semifinal opposite Centerville.
“There were probably no doubt nerves on both parts, in both dugouts,” Lincoln coach Scott Griffin said of opening the tournament with the first of three games played on Memorial Day Monday. “We hit the ball hard. We had a few things. We made some base running errors. I think a lot of that was just nerves.”
