[September 15, 2012]  After a 0-3 start to the season, the LCHS boys soccer team continued their more recent winning ways by downing a tough Springfield Lutheran team on Thursday night.

In the first half of play, Lincoln dominated possession and outshot their opponents 8-1, but came up short on the scoreboard and trailed 1-0 at the break.

In the second half, going into a strong wind, Lincoln continued to control the flow of the game, and eventually Tommy Harris found Ryan Sloan with a nice pass for the first goal of the game. With the assist, Harris tied George Kennet's record for career assists at 17. Harris, a senior, netted a goal of his own with 5 minutes remaining in regulation, and the Railers won 2-1.

For Lutheran, it was only their second loss of the season.
