The Vincennes Lincoln Alices laid claim to the Class 3A sectional 30 football championship with a 34-21 win over host Princeton. The Alices struggled thru the first half and trailed 10-6 at halftime. The second half belonged to Lincoln as Rae Haislip led the way with 4 TD runs. He found the endzone on runs of 4, 7, 61 and 15 yards respectively to erase any ideas Princeton had of an upset. The win was the Alices 7th straight as they improve to 8-4 and win the school’s 7th football sectional and their first since 2006.
The Alices will host Danville on Friday night in a 7:30 game at Inman Field. 7 and 5 Danville won sectional 29 with a 34-17 win over Indianapolis Ritter.
The North Knox Warriors were thwarted in the attempt to win a Class 2A sectional 40 title with a 35 -6 loss to 4th ranked Evansville Mater Dei. The Warriors end a nice season with an 8-4 record.
