Last season, the Lincolnton Middle School Wildcats enjoyed a season of dreams.
On Wednesday, they maintained their unblemished streak beating RS Central 28-20.
Jonathan Ingram was a big reason why. Ingram carried the ball 15 times for 210 yards with three touchdowns.
Ingram opened the game with an 85-yard kickoff return. He then had two 60+ yard runs, the second of which helped seal the game.
â€˜Jonathan was awesome. He scored three touchdowns,â€ Wildcatsâ€™ head coach Mike Devine said.
RS Central scored on the last play of the game to make the score a little bit closer.
Tripper Crisson was 4-for-4 passing for 51 yards, one touchdown and one two-point conversion.
All four passes of Crissonâ€™s were directed to Jimmy Angle who had 51 yards receiving with one touchdown and one two-point conversion.
Tevin Avery also had a two-point conversion.
Devine cited Michael Dellinger, Chris Melton and Caleb Lail for outstanding blocking on the offensive line.
Defensively, Ingram, Angle, Jordan Abee and Stuart Cochrane were the leading tacklers. Ingram also had an interception.
â€œIt was a very good football game. This was the best RS Central team Iâ€™ve seen in my six years. They were big and fast and had some very good people at skill positions. Our kids played extremely hard, we have some work to do, but overall we played well for our first game,â€ Devine said.
The Wildcats improve to 1-0 on the season and will host Kings Mountain next week.
