There were multiple heroes for Lincoln’s fast Hornets at last Friday night’s Open Division Championship football game. Makhi Gray, Cory Thompson-Miller, Josiah Cox, Roderick Robinson, Jerome Roberts, Raylon Logan, KJ Chatham, Joshua Carroll, and the list goes on.

In the first half of Championship football, the fast-twitch Hornets didn’t look so swift. They could not keep up with the number one ranked team in San Diego, the Mighty Lancers of Carlsbad.

The Lancers definitely lived up to their well-earned hype in the first half, holding the high-scoring Hornets to just six points courtesy of tough guy Rodrick Robinson’s three-yard TD run.
Half-time score: Carlsbad 14-6. The second half appeared to duplicate the first half as Carlsbad increased their lead 21-6.

Not until the fourth quarter did the Hive finally come alive.

“They finally started playing some Lincoln football. [In] the first half, we couldn’t do anything right. It took awhile for them to get that spark and get started, but they did and I’m very proud of them,” Head Hornet David Dunn shared.

Hornet QB KJ Chatham tossed three TD’s in the fourth quarter, including the game-clencher to Cory Thompson-Miller. Lincoln’s defense stepped up and shut down the number one team in the County and Big Lincoln’s victory was complete and sweet 28-24.

“We had a chip on our shoulders ever since last year, losing in the D-1 Championship game. We’ve been working hard every day in practice. We worked hard for this, we earned it and it really means a whole lot to us!” Lincoln Roderick Robinson shared.

CIF Open Division 2022 Champions. The best football team in San Diego. Congratulations to Hornet Nation!
