It took less than three minutes for the soccer Patriots to tally again. This time it was Hawk Randall, also a senior, getting into goal. He dribbled the ball all the way up the middle of the field from midfield then worked the ball to the left before powering in the shot.

The score stood at 2-0 at the half.

The night’s scoring would belong to the Lincoln seniors, with Cummins and Randall scoring a goal appiece in the second half to give the soccer Pats the shutout victory.

Carter Tillett was in goal for the soccer Patriots.
