Lincoln 3, Redmond 0 Sunday, November 04, 2007

Sophomore Carson Swope breaks between defenders Conner Flanagan (left) and Jeffry Villalobos to score the opening goal for Lincoln in the 67th minute of their 3-0 win over Redmond Nov. 3 in Portland. With the win, the Cardinals advance to the second round of the playoffs where they will meet Tualatin on Nov. 6.

Mostly a bunch of photos today. This was a good game to watch. Redmond and Lincoln were scoreless for the first three quarters of the game before the Cardinals finally got on the board with two goals in just over two minutes. They added a third goal in the 78th minute (of an 80-minute game) to seal the victory.

The light was really nice for the first half of the game. Unfortunately, the big plays came in the second half when the field was mostly shaded. But it was nice to shoot in the daylight for a change, and the weather was really nice for November.
