PORTLAND - The Lincoln Cardinals showed off they plan to be a factor in the Class 6A playoff race with a dominating performance Friday night in a 34-0 victory over visiting Glencoe.

The Cardinals held the Crimson Tide to negative yards on offense until midway through the second quarter and got a pair of touchdowns from senior John Duffy in the win.

Lincoln's win highlighted the Portland Interscholastic League's performances from Friday and Saturday.

With the district moving all its schools up to Class 6A, the Cardinals were the lone victors.

Grant, the other Class 6A school from last year, lost 49-16 to Tigard in its season opener.

In other PIL games, Jefferson highlighted the performances with a 14-7 loss at Lebanon.

In other games, Roosevelt and Benson both lost to Washington schools: Roosevelt to Lincoln, 48-6, and Benson to Roosevelt, 49-22.

Madison and Cleveland both lost at home: Madison 62-13 to Reynolds and Cleveland 41-6 to Aloha.

Wilson and Franklin lost on the road: the Trojans 27-0 at Silverton, and the Quakers 62-28 at Redmond.

This week's games involving PIL schools include:

Wilson is at Crescent Valley, Cleveland is at Century, Benson is at Scappoose, Roosevelt is at Clackamas, and Madison is at Hood River Valley. Franklin plays at home against Summit of Bend, and Grant is at home against Sherwood.

Lincoln gets its next test Friday when it travels to Southridge of Beaverton, which lost its opener to yearly state-title contender Lake Oswego, 21-14.
