Campbellsville’s Eagles picked up in Berea on Friday night right where they left off at Lynn Camp the week before.
The Eagles raced out to a 34-point advantage in the first quarter and never looked back as they spoiled the Pirates’ Senior Night festivities with a 47-8 win.
After Berea misplayed the opening kick-off, the Pirates took over at their own one yard line. Three plays into the drive, Eagle defensive back, Alex Brunelle stepped in front of Berea quarterback Darius Whitaker’s errant pass and returned it to the two yard line. Tashaun Hoskins plowed his way into the end zone from two yards out to put the Eagles out front 7-0. Bradley Bates hit on the first of his five point-after boots.
After another Berea turnover, Josh Hicks found Josh Roe from 20 yards out and CHS led 14-0.
Hicks kept the ball on the Eagles’ next possession on an option play and darted 21 yards for the third CHS score.
CHS head coach Jay Cobb went into his back of tricks and pulled out a reverse on the Eagles’ fourth possession. The call worked to perfection as Brunelle took a pitch from Hoskins and scampered 38 yards for the fourth score of the quarter for Campbellsville.
Hicks hit Hoskins for a 30-yard touchdown to finish the period at 34-0.
The sixth Campbellsville touchdown of the half came when Hoskins powered in from five yards out.
Berea eventually cracked the scoreboard, but not conventionally. Wilson corralled Hoskins in the end zone to net the Pirates a safety and its first points of the game with just over 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
To make up for the tackle in the end zone, Hoskins burst loose on a 52-yard run to finish out the Eagles scoring and giving the senior a 136-yard rushing night and 170 total yards.
Berea did score on the last play of the game as Darius Whitaker hit Eli Woodie, the grandson of former state representative Russ Mobley, on a 30-yard touchdown pass.
Campbellsville (5-4) out-scored its opponents 100-8 over its last two district ball games and the Eagle defense, which has allowed six points in its last 10 quarters, was led by Nicky Lamer who recorded three sacks.
Campbellsville closes out regular-season play on Friday vs. Fort Knox, coached by former Eagle Shawn Thompson, before beginning play-off action at home vs. Pineville on Friday, Nov. 4.
