Lincoln County High School’s Falcons (2-5) (1-2) dropped a 30-3 region road trip to Shelbyville Friday night.

With the suspension of Head Coach Tim Johnson, long-time Assistant Coach Don McNeese leads the Falcons in the interim.

Friday night, the Falcons kept it close, trailing 6-3 at the break, but the size and strength of the Eagles’ running game took control the second half. At the buzzer, Shelbyville’s starting offense was on the field, scoring in the final minutes of the game.
