How this weekend plays out is yet to be seen. We have one terrific team this year, and we feel pretty confident that they will pass their old 1980 standing of fourth place.

We'll play devil's advocate for just a minute and spell out what could lie ahead for the team.

On Friday at 12:15 p.m., they will tip off against Rockford Lutheran. 

On Friday at 2 p.m., Chicago Morgan Park and Chicago Orr will face off for their chance to go to the state final.

If Lincoln wins Friday, they will then on Saturday play the winner of the Chicago faceoff at 2 p.m. in Peoria. The winner of that game will be the state champions for 2014.

Should Rockford slip past the Railers on Friday, the Railers' Saturday game would then be against the loser of the Chicago faceoff at 12:15 p.m. and will determine the third-place position.

Win, lose or draw, the fact is the team this year will go further than any Lincoln team has gone for quite some time. We wish them all the best. We want them to know that no matter how this all plays out, the staff of LDN have truly enjoyed documenting this historic season. We are genuinely proud of every young person on the team, on the cheering squad and in the stands. We also appreciate and admire the dedication of head coach Neil Alexander and his staff of coaches.
