Tonights game was really defined by two halves against Dixie. For the Camels the first half was a distaster. The offense had two fumbles in their own territory, one resulting in a Dixie touchdown. Other than an early touchdown, the Camels offense never could get anything going.
It must have been a great halftime speech, because the Camels came out on fire in the second half. Scoring 30 points while the defense held the Colonels to just 8 points.
Campbell County’s first two possessions of the third quarter resulted in quick touchdowns. #18 Tyler Durham scored a touchdown on both possessions, one was a run of 38 yards, the other was a run of 11 yards. After a 2 point conversion and extra point the 3rd quarter ended with the Camels down 21-24.
The Camels second possession of the 4th quarter resulted in a touchdown. A 10+ yard run from #28 Alex Howard got the Camels to the Dixie Heights 4 yard line. On the next play Durham would run the ball into the endzone. The two point conversion was good, making the score 29-24 with 8 minutes left.
Dixie didn’t go away quietly as they would score another touchdown, and after a successful two point conversion they would go back on top 32-29.
A few possessions later the camels would find themselves on their own 5 yard line after a great Dixie punt. On 1st and 10 Durham threw a 15 yard pass to #83 Jake Zabonick, he would slip out of a tackle and run his way into the endzone for a 95 yard touchdown. That would give them camels the lead, 36-32.
The defense held and sealed the win.
The result of tonights game keeps the Camels in first place in the district (2-0).
