Lincoln County blanks Landmark Christian

FAIRBURN, Ga. - Gavin Williams rushed 17 times for 156 yards and the Red Devils shut out the high-scoring War Eagles for a spot in the Class A quarterfinals next week.

Williams got his final 76 yards on a game-sealing touchdown with :31 seconds to play, pushing Lincoln County into a matchup at Region 1 champion Clinch County next week.

Lincoln County (8-4) led 7-0 at halftime on a 35-yard touchdown pass from Mel Partridge to Chris Crite. It padded its lead with a Terrance Norman touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter.

On the other side of the ball, the Red Devils were dominant. Landmark Christian (11-1) gained just 26 yards on the ground, and star quarterback Alex Mortenson - who passed for more than 2,200 yards and 25 TDs this season - went only 12-for-22 for 143 yards and two interceptions.
