Synder will counter with an offense in which seven Pioneers scored at least 4 goals this season.
"Both teams are pretty solid all around the field," Snyder said. "They had some quality scorers, and we have a variety of scorers. Hopefully, the variety will come together."
Lincoln (15-1-2 overall, 6-1-1 league) finished second in the tough Gold Division, with Frankford (9-6-4, 4-1-3) coming in fourth. The only game in which Lincoln and Frankford met this season ended in a 1-1 tie.
"I expect pretty much the same type of game as the first game,' Snyder said of the championship. "Both teams had a lot of opportunities to win that one."
Frankford, the two-time defending Public League champ, advanced to the final by defeating first-place Central, 3-2, in the semifinals Nov. 21.
"Frankford is traditionally a team that never says die," Patton said. ''They always go all out."
Charlie Bowers, who wasn't even starting two weeks ago, had 2 goals in the semifinal for the Pioneers as a result of corner kicks.
He scored on a head ball on one, and the other was a result of a scramble in front of the net. Mike Desparios opened the scoring with a goal just two minutes into the game.
Lincoln, meanwhile, will make its first trip to the final since 1981, when it lost to Washington, 1-0.
"It's been a long time, that's for sure," Patton said.
The Railsplitters blanked Washington, 2-0, in the semifinals Nov. 21. Jordan and Sousa scored three minutes apart early in the second half.
Jordan knocked in the rebound of his own shot after a corner kick by Jon Koch. The second one was worthy of space on a highlight film. After a corner kick, the ball bounced to Sousa, who had his back to the goal. He executed a bicycle kick to knock the ball into the net.
The shutout was Lincoln goalie Brian Graham's 12th of the year and his second straight in the playoffs. Overall, Lincoln hasn't been scored on in seven games dating to Oct. 25, when the Railsplitters fell to Central, 2-1.
If Graham gets a shutout in the championship game, he'll tie the school record of 13 shutouts in a season, which was set by Tom Howell in 1978, the last time Lincoln won a Public League title.
