Here’s what we’re working on for Friday’s edition of the LTN:
BATTLE OF UNBEATENS
North Lincoln, which is 2-0 for the first time since 2004 and has yet to commit a turnover, hosts East Lincoln, which is a lucky 2-0 after committing eight turnovers thus far. The teams are the county’s only undefeated teams left. –– Ryan Herman
COUNTY CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS
Boys and girls cross country teams from East Lincoln, Lincolnton, North Lincoln and West Lincoln will convene in Vale on Thursday for the Lincoln County Championships. –– Ryan Herman
— Preview capsules from Friday’s North Gaston-Lincolnton and West Lincoln-Cherryville high school football games.
— Sports Editor Ryan Herman picks this week’s high school football winners. He went 1-2 last week, and is 3-3 on the season. Ugh.
— A roundup of local games reported to the LTN.
