Lincoln-Way West played host to district rival Lincoln-Way Central in the first varsity football meeting between the two schools on Friday night.
And the Warriors notched a 27-9 victory.
West scored quickly in the non-conference game and built a 14-0 lead in the second quarter. After a series of penalties and a few heated exchanges by the teams, the Knights rallied with a touchdown and soon after scored a safety following a fumbled snap in the Warriors' end zone.
Central closed within 14-9 at the half. But West regained its momentum in the second half. The Warriors added a pair of touchdowns while shutting out the Knights in the third and fourth quarters.
