NINETY SIX 39, LINCOLN COUNTY 35

In Ninety Six, S.C., Rod Johnson’s third touchdown of the night lifted Ninety Six to a victory over Lincoln County on Thursday night.

This game was supposed to have been played Sept. 14, but due to a scheduling conflict it was moved to Thursday.

That meant the Red Devils (1-2) hadn’t played since a loss to Washington-Wilkes on Sept. 7.

Johnson scored on a 10-yard run with 1:10 left to give the Wildcats the victory.

Mike McIntire had three touchdowns for the Red Devils. He had rushing scores of 78 and 6 yards and caught a 69-yard TD pass from Keith Lockhart.
