HUNTSVILLE -- Lincoln emerges from the nonconference portion of the schedule still looking for its first football win of the season on the heels of a 48-0 loss at Huntsville Friday.

Kyler Calvin held a quarterback keeper to two yards and Grant King, who's been playing like a monster on defense for Lincoln, stuffed a third down run two yards behind the line of scrimmage forcing a Huntsville punt.

The game soon got away from the Wolves with Tucker Bradley scoring on runs of 12 and 36 yards as the Eagles opened up a 14-0 first quarter lead the poured in 28 points with four touchdowns in the second quarter to go up 42-0 at halftime.

Lincoln had a punt blocked, but the Wolves' defense held forcing a turnover on downs at the Lincoln 27 when Chris West stopped Mayes for no gain on a keeper.

Huntsville's Brandon Rushano intercepted a pass and ran 25 yards untouched for a defensive touchdown. Scott's kick made it 35-0 with 4:01 to go in the first half..

Reynolds broke loose on a 46-yard jaunt for a touchdown and the Eagles were up big, 42-0, with 1:26 left in the second quarter.

The second half was played with a running clock.

Lincoln played better offensively in the passing game in the second half although they still could not produce yards on the ground. Kellar Price had several catches but the Wolves didn't score.
