The Warriors shake off a sluggish start to win on opening weekend.
The Lincoln-Sudbury line gradually wore down its counterparts from Tewksbury and the Warriors rallied from an early 12-0 deficit to post a 15-12 non-league road win on Saturday. Chris Giorgio plowed in from 2 yards out with just 1:30 left in the fourth quarter to give the Warriors the win. After Tewksbury had scored their second touchdown of the first half to take a 12-0 lead, Joe Kenney intercepted the attempted two-point conversion pass and returned it 95 yards for L-S's first two points of the season. The Warriors cut the deficit to 12-9 with a touchdown pass from quarterback Henry Guild to Malik Lane on fourth and goal.

A trip to the Superbowl capped another sensational year for the Warriors
The Lincoln-Sudbury football team nearly pulled off another stirring playoff comeback at Bentley University Saturday night against the state’s number one ranked team. Not many people gave Lincoln-Sudbury a chance against mighty Everett and Massachusetts Player of the Year Jonathan DiBiaso. Fortunately, L-S coach Tom Lopez and his gritty group of players didn’t listen to the experts. The Warriors weren’t given much of a chance in their playoff game against Barnstable either after being down 13-0 going into the fourth quarter. But the 2011 Lincoln-Sudbury football team showed everyone how much resolve and character they had by scoring two fourth-quarter touchdowns to earn a trip to the Division 1A Superbowl, where they would go toe-to-toe …

Warriors tally 28 unanswered points to improve to 8-0.
On a frigid night at Myers Field in Sudbury, the Westford Academy football team caught fire in the first half, and the Grey Ghosts put a scare into Lincoln-Sudbury's dreams of an undefeated season. But the Warrior defense tightened up in the second half, however, allowing only one second-half first down, and the offense rang up 28 unanswered points to cruise to a 38-14 victory. Down 14-10 at the half, the Warriors didn’t take long to pick themselves up as Brian Carroll brought back the opening kickoff of the third quarter into Westford territory. Lincoln-Sudbury fought their way toward the endzone for 10 plays highlighted by a Matt Cahill pass to Jack Harris for 18 yards on third and 10. Chris Giorgio finished off the drive with a 1-yard …

On a frigid night at Myers Field in Sudbury, the Lincoln-Sudbury football team started off cold against a fired up Westford Academy squad before taking control in a 38-14 victory on Friday night.

A long kick return from Brian Carroll set the tone to start the second half, and the Warriors never looked back, scoring 28 unanswered points. Matt Cahill threw two long completions to Jack Harris that set up two scores, and Chris Giorgio had three touchdown runs to pace the Warriors.

Three topics, three observations each on the Warriors' season opener against Tewksbury.
Saturday's 28-0 win for the Lincoln-Sudbury football team had big plays in all three phases of the game from the visitors. For Tewksbury ... well, their performance left something to be desired. Here's the first 3-by-3 of the 2011 season. 1. An 8-yard run on the first play from scrimmage was the only play of positive yardage for the Tewksbury offense in the first quarter, part of a streak of nine such plays in the first half. The Redmen didn't notch a first down until their only drive of the third quarter. 2. The Warriors' opening drive of the second half had the mentality of a team hanging on to a lead at the end of a game rather than halfway through. The drive took up the first 6:50 of the third quarter and ended on a Kevin Saunders …

Warriors hope to exploit inexperienced Redmen defense.
The Lincoln-Sudbury High School Warriors football team kicks off the 2011 season Saturday at 2:30 p.m. when they visit the Tewksbury Redmen. Last year, the Warriors made the Division 1A playoffs out of the Dual County League-Large division with a record of 8-4, while the Redmen finished 5-6 in the Merrimack Valley Conference. The Warriors return 15 lettermen and are ranked 15th in the Boston Globe preseason poll, while the Redmen only return five lettermen. All signs point to a victory for the Warriors, right? Not necessarily. If you're a veteran head coach like L-S's Tom Lopez, you know there's no guarantees in this game. And while scouting Tewksbury in a scrimmage against Gloucester - the same Gloucester team that defeated Lincoln-…
