Puckett wins wild one at West Lincoln
Without digging into the record books it’s safe to say that West Lincoln played in the highest scoring game in school history Friday night. Unfortunately, the one stop Puckett got all night was enough as the visiting Wolves from Rankin County took a 60-57 win in Flea Hop Friday night.
The Bears (2-2) had the ball the Puckett 25-yard line and were driving for a go-ahead score when the Wolves (2-2) got the game sealing stop on homecoming for WL.
West Lincoln beat the same team 73-47 in a basketball game last season in Jack Case gymnasium. Friday night on Perry Miller Field it was the West Lincoln running game that was doing damage as senior tailback Michael Brothern finished the night with five TDs. Quarterback Travis Hall added two rushing scores and sophomore running back Enrico Price scored one as well for coach Brad Bland.
The Bears will replenish their electrolytes this week before traveling to play the St. Joseph Bruins on Friday.
