VU-Lynchburg held Lincoln (Pa.) to 8 rushing yards on the afternoon, as the defensive effort led the way for the Dragons’ 18-2 win in Saturday’s Western Virginia Education Classic played at William Fleming Stadium.
A windy afternoon may have held the attendance down, but enthusiasm ran high for the 12th annual event that is a fundraiser for Total Action Against Poverty designed to get high school dropouts to return to school.
VUL’s Mac Shinhoster, who ran for 187 yards on 29 carries, and scored two touchdowns, was named offensive MVP. Lincoln’s Tim Green took defensive MVP honors.
