[September 12, 2012]  SPRINGFIELD -- The Lincoln second- and third-grade White team defeated Springfield Monday night, taking a hard-fought 18-13 victory at Sacred Heart-Griffin.

Lincoln was led by Jaden Leadley, who had all three touchdowns for Lincoln and 120 yards rushing. In addition, Mason Farris had 30 yards rushing, Gavin Gibbons 20 yards, and Conner Boyd had two carries for 10 yards.

Lincoln was led on defense once again by Tony "the Tiger" Gandolphi with nine tackles and two sacks. Andrew Cline added six tackles and one sack, and Leadley had four tackles. Kylen Baker, Bryton Fuchs, Chase McCormick, Everett Maaks and Farris each had two tackles. Gibbons, Ryan O'Donoghue, Ashton Koontz, Boyd and Jude Bennett all had a tackle.

Lincoln's second- through eighth-grade teams all played games at the new Sacred Heart-Griffin multimillion-dollar turf stadium this year.

"What an experience it was for the kids and coaches," said coach Steve Farris. "We would like to say 'thank you' to SHG and their staff for allowing us to play there."
