WSSU steamrolls its way past Lincoln (Pa.)

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pennsylvania — Winston-Salem State ran over, around and through Lincoln University on Saturday night in a 51-10 win at Lincoln University Stadium.

The Rams took command in the third quarter when they went on a 92-yard drive that ended with Te’Vaughn Hurse scoring from 6 yards out. Will Johnson’s extra point made it 30-10 with less than five minutes left in the third quarter and the blowout was almost complete.

Coach Kienus Boulware of the Rams said he was proud of the way the Rams battled back after a slow start.

“We didn’t get off to a good start in the first quarter and with Lincoln being at home they had something to do with that,” Boulware said by phone after the game. “But we got our running game going and really took the pressure off (quarterback) A.J. (Nocciolo), but the offensive line was really on point tonight.”

Running back Xavier Quick scored from 1 yard out later in the third quarter to make it 37-10 after Johnson’s point-after attempt was good.
