Omaha Northwest had no chance against Lincoln High on Friday, September 9th for the Homecoming game. The Links came on strong in the first half and never let go of the lead.

Ending with a score of  27 – 21, this is the first Homecoming win Lincoln High has seen since 1999 when they defeated Lincoln East.

The game was at Lincoln High’s very own Beechner Field and the weather was great. The bleachers were filled with people, the student section roared throughout the game and things such as Lincoln High sunglasses and shirts were thrown into the student section. Some alumni came back for this jaw dropping game to cheer on the Links and live in the past for a while.
