In doing so, that allowed Brock Jensen to pick up a couple of huge sacks, while David Mathison got a pass deflection. Wawasee eventually scored on a reverse. Lincoln was able to move the up and down the field, but penalties and the clock hurt their scoring opportunities. Roman Snedeker and Easton Strain both spent time as QB leading the Lincoln attack.
