MARK HUMPHREY ENTERPRISE-LEADER/Lincoln senior Layne Sellers (5-9, 160) pounces on the football after a teammate dislodged it from a receiver during an Aug. 20 scrimmage against Lamar. The Wolves continued their border rivalry with Westville, Okla. Friday, a series that began in 1952. The Yellowjackets won 30-14 to notch their 20th win in the all-time series. Lincoln has 12 wins and there has been one nonconference tie.

LINCOLN -- In 2018 a new dynamic billed as the "State Line Standoff" added to the border rivalry between Lincoln and Westville, Okla. sending a trophy home with the winning team.

Former Lincoln head football coach Don Harrison and former Westville head coach Tyler Dorton worked out an agreement. Dorton served as offensive coordinator for Harrison at Lincoln from 2015-2016 before spending one season as Westville head coach.

Dorton left the Yellowjackets in May of 2018, to become the offensive coordinator at Ada, Okla. Harrison was dismissed as Lincoln head coach in January of 2020 and took over as head coach at Stilwell, Okla., a chief rival for Westville with both schools located in Adair County.

Friday's 30-14 win by Westville at Atkin-Langley Field stopped a four game winning streak by Lincoln, its longest in the border rivalry, and awarded the trophy to the Yellowjackets for the first time since its inception.

Lincoln and Westville have played 32 times since 1952. Westville holds an all-time lead in the series with 20 wins compared to 12 for Lincoln with one nonconference tie. The Yellowjackets hold a 10-7 series lead at Atkin-Langley Field and a 10-5-1 advantage in games played at Lincoln.
