Blue Friday Night Lights: Lincoln Abes vs Rainier Beach Vikings
As the high school football playoffs opened across the state of Washington, the Blue Friday Night Lights bus pulled into Tacoma’s Lincoln Bowl. The opening-round tilt featured host Lincoln High School and one of last year’s state finalists, Rainier Beach. In the cold autumn air, under the bright lights of the state playoffs, the Abes of Tacoma’s Lincoln High and the Vikings of Seattle’s Rainier Beach stood toe to toe for the first handful of drives. In the second quarter, the Vikings unleashed an aerial assault that put the Abes on their heels heading into halftime. After recovering a Beach fumble on the Vikings’ own 4-yard line, the Abes got on the board looking to swing the momentum in Lincoln’s direction. Ultimately, the Vikings held on for a 14-7 victory, and a date in the second round of the state playoffs next weekend. The Sea Gals, Blue Thunder, DJ Supa Sam and Seahawks and Lincoln high school alum Lawyer Milloy were on hand to celebrate the game with the passionate fans of both schools, and the Tacoma community that supports high school athletics. Congratulations to the students across the state who fought all season long for a berth into the playoffs, and good luck to those still alive to chase their dream of hoisting the state championship trophy in the Tacoma Dome in three weeks.
