The Sideline

On homecoming night, the Lincoln Abes put together another solid performance to defeat the visiting Central Kitsap Cougars at historic Lincoln Bowl by a score of 41-14. The victory moves the fifth-ranked Abes to 5-0 in the 3A Narrows league and 7-0 overall.

A win against Wilson (4-1, 6-1) next Friday at Stadium Bowl would lock up the title for Lincoln. Expect a serious ballgame from Wilson, who still has a chance at the title and is battling for one of the coveted top two seeds out of the 3A Narrows which will earn a home game for the first round of the state playoffs.

Junior Lincoln quarterback Jordan Kitna continued his assault through the air, racking up 367 yards passing on 22 of 36 attempts for five touchdowns and an interception. Kitna has now passed for 37 touchdowns this season and is approaching 3,000 yards.

Kitna had his leg rolled-up on a sack early in the second quarter and injured his ankle. Lincoln staff taped him up and worked him through a painful remainder of the game before handing the ball off to back-up quarterback, sophomore Joey Sinclair in the fourth quarter.

Junior running back Dionte Simon had a big night racking up 131 yards through the air and scored two touchdowns. Senior all-everything back Dehonta Hayes scored two touchdowns and set up the first score of the night with a 73-yard punt return.

Newly-crowned homecoming king, senior Jusstis Warren, capped the scoring for the Abes in the fourth quarter with a 30-yard inside-outside run that ended with a dive onto the end zone pile-on with a defender draped across his back. Junior tight end Devin Brady opened the night with a six-yard touchdown pass from Kitna.
