Capital squeezes by Lincoln, 23-14

Friday night, Capital raised its overall and league record to the .500 mark with its first road win of the season, downing Lincoln 23-14.
It was an offensive battle most of the way, with Capital (3-3) striking first on a Thor Hansen 1-yard plunge over the goal line in the first quarter.

The Abes struck back, pulling the score to 17-14 in the third quarter with a quarterback sneak, but that's all Lincoln could muster as the game headed into the fourth.

Wall finished the game with 19 rushes for 94 yards. Capital quarterback Kellen Camus went 14-for-21 with 138 yards passing.
Capital stuffed the run, allowing only 43 yards, while racking up 206 yards on the ground.

This is a big win for Capital: its first on the road and first against a winning team. Already a marked improvement over last season.
