LINCOLN â€“ Jillian DeSimone stood anxiously on the rain-soaked Ferguson Field sidelines, her teamâ€™s perfect season hanging in the balance.
If ever there was a time for Lincoln High to prove it was more than a one-player show, this was it.
Playing without DeSimone for most of the second half after the stateâ€™s leading goal scorer picked up her yellow card of the game, the Lions rode Ashley Moreauâ€™s five goals and Nina Fournierâ€™s goalkeeping to a 12-9 victory over Cumberland High School on Monday.

It didnâ€™t take long for the Boston Red Sox to climb out of that impossible hole all the doomsayers had put them in after they started the season with two wins in their first 12 games. After Sunday nightâ€™s win over the Cubs, Bostonâ€™s record stood at 25-21 and the Sox were just one-half game out of first place in the American League East.
