When was the last time you saw Campbell County beat a team by almost 60 points? Did I mention that they held their opponent to 0 points?
The camels were impressive on both sides of the ball tonight. The offense scored 57 points, while the defense held Dunbar to 0 total points.
Lets start with the defense, they would recover a fumble deep in Dunbar territory in the first quarter, forced Dunbar to give up a safety in the second quarter, Grant Mahoney would return an interception for 54 yards in the third quarter, and holding Dunbar’s score to 0 points in the fourth quarter.
The only bright spots for Dunbar’s offense tonight were two 40+ yard runs for touchdowns, they would each be called back because of holding penalties.
The offense had a great night as well, by then end of the first quarter the camels already had a 27 point lead. Those touchdowns would be scored by Tyler Durham (37 TD run), Jake Zabonick (35 yard TD run), Alex Howard (1 yard TD run), and Bobby Moore (5 yard TD run).
At halftime the camels were up 43-0 after scoring two touchdowns in the second quarter.
Early in the third quater the offense would get into the endzone for the last time on a Tim Weimer 8 yard run. That would make the score 50-0, and by KHSAA rules that meant that the clock wouldn’t stop.
The final 7 points would be scored on the Mahoney interception I mentioned earlier.
Next friday night the Camels play Simon Kenton at home at 7:00pm in the second round of the KHSAA Class 6A tournament.
