Lincolnton ends Maiden's season

November 19, 2011

Maiden appeared poised to pull a playoff comeback for the second straight week.

Down 21-7 at halftime and held in check on offense, the Blue Devils weren’t out, but they were down.

“It was the same as Polk County. I hate to say we came out flat,” said Maiden senior quarterback Matt Johnson. “But we battled back.”

At Polk County last week, Maiden trailed 21-14 at halftime before winning 41-27.

This week, the come-from-behind story didn’t end the same as No. 1 seed Lincolnton (13-1) ended Maiden’s season with a 34-21 loss in the sectional round of the N.C. 2A state playoffs.
