A picture says a thousand words. Your Lincoln Railers finished the East Peoria tourney in terrific fashion today with 2 more shutouts. The perfect 4-0 record, giving up only one goal all weekend, gave us the tourney championship.

In the first game against Eisenhower, the team won in convincing fashion 7-0. Goals were by Garrett Slack (2), Jace Mcintosh (2), Carter Robison, AJ Beard, and Jackson Van Fossan. Payton Lanning and the defense held Eisenhower to 0 shots on goal.

In the second game, we faced defending 1A state tournament runner up Monmouth Roseville. Dean Harris got us on the board early with a 55 yard free kick that found the back of the net. Just a few minutes later, Brandon D’Andrea was taken down in the box for a PK. After that the team held strong and the midfield and defense kept Monmouth under pressure. In the end we picked up the second shutout of the day and 4th on the season.
