TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - Some high school football teams in the Big Bend looked for normalcy Monday night in the form of make-up games from last week's cancellations thanks to Hurricane Michael.

Lincoln defeated Leon 56-21, and in turn, won their 20th straight District Championship, securing a spot in the postseason in the process.

Munroe had to move their match-up to Rocky Bayou, but a change in location didn't hinder them. The Bobcats came out on top 32-6, a good win, and a good way to get back to normal.

"Just to come out here and represent our community and tell everybody we're Gadsden strong. We're going to rise up," said Munroe head coach Joseph Gaddy. "We told everybody before the storm, our theme for the week was built different and it was just amazing how that resonated through the storm, we're built different at Munroe and we were able to fight through the storm and able to come out and it meant so much."

Make-up games continue Tuesday, with Baconton Charter at Terrell County at noon. Brookwood is at Deerfield-Windsor at 6:00, and Maclay hosts North Florida Educational Institute at 6:30.

Florida High was set to play at Wakulla Tuesday, but that game was moved to Friday. Kickoff is at 7:30.
