Late blocked punt propels Mustangs to win over Wolves — Full Scoreboard

East Lincoln 10, Lincolnton 7

Cole Barber scored the go-ahead touchdown with 5:58 to play in the game and the Mustangs’ defense held off any threat the Wolves had in mind for the 10-7 South Fork 2A Conference win over their county rival.

The game-winning score was set up by a blocked punt by Lucas McConnell that gave East Lincoln (6-0, 2-0) the ball at the Wolves’ 17-yard line.  Barber’s run came on the very next play from scrimmage.

The Mustangs held Lincolnton (2-4, 0-2) to 118 total yards, including 41 on the ground on 29 carries.  

Likewise, the Wolves played a great defensive game, holding East Lincoln to 182 yards rushing on 47 carries. Both teams committed four turnovers.  Lincolnton was penalized 8 times for 70 yards, while East Lincoln drew 6 flags for 42 yards.

The Mustangs travel to North Lincoln next Friday in a first-place battle, while Lincolnton will play host to Bandys.
