It wasn’t a highlight-reel victory, but Abraham Lincoln was still able to build momentum heading into an important Friday night contest with Grand Street in Coney Island this week.
The Railsplitters fought through rain and wind on Oct. 2 to top host Curtis 16–6 in Public School Athletic League City Conference football. Lincoln (4–1), which scored all of its points in the first quarter, has won two straight after falling to undefeated Tottenville in Week Three.
Quarterback Jordan Hannah compiled 210 yards of total offense and scored on the ground and in the air with a touchdown pass to Kevin Medy. The Lincoln defense delivered a number of big plays to stifle the Curtis attack. Jordan Jones had an interception and a fumble recovery. Marcus Cameron and Marvin Saint Fort both recovered fumbles.
It sets up a matchup against unbeaten Grand Street this week. Lincoln, the two-time defending city champions, ended the Wolves’ season in the semifinals a year ago.
