2010 Lincoln 28, Woodcreek 21 Passing Zebras – 41 yards, 0 TDs 0 Int T’wolves – 63 yards, 1 TDs, 0 Int Rushing Zebras – 304 yards, 3 TDs T’wolves – 212 yards, 2 TDs Defense Zebras – 47 tackles T’wolves – 85 tackles The Woodcreek High School varsity football team will bring with it 31 players that surrendered a 21-7 lead to Lincoln High School on the Timberwolves home turf in the season opener for both teams last year. That allowed the Fighting Zebras to bring home a 28-21 victory over the Sierra Foothill League team. Coming back is Woodcreek quarterback Shaun Mize. Mize, now a senior, hit on 50 percent of his passes for one touchdown in the game, and he ran for another. However, his two top receivers from 2010 won’t be coming with him. In the rushing department, both clubs lost their top ball carriers. Woodcreek graduated Blake Cervantes and J.J. Nourth; Lincoln bid farewell to Oscar Fernandez who rushed for three touchdowns in the 2010 contest. The Timberwolves’ real Achilles’ heel proved to be fumbles with the Zebras gaining a 5:2 turnover advantage. WC’s leading tackler in the game was linebacker McCade Hunt; he was scheduled to return Friday night. One of Lincoln’s leading tacklers from last season, Michael Thompson, should be ready to go. Either way it should be a good match up if Zebras’ coach Ken Lowe has his new quarterback in place, and someone to fill Fernandez’s shoes. Staff Report
