Fort Knox out-scored Campbellsville on touchdowns 4-3, but the home-standing Eagles of coach Jay Cobb had three touchdowns, two extra points, a conversion run and a field goal to edge the visitors 25-24 in Friday night’s regular-season finale.
It only took Fort Knox, coached by CHS 1991 graduate Shawn Thompson, two plays to remove the zero from the board when Dominic Dingle went 63 yards on a reverse.
Campbellsville (6-4) took the lead midway in the opening quarter on a Tashaun Hoskins nine-yard run. A Josh Hicks 19-yard pass to Alex Brunelle set up the tally and after a penalty on the extra-point try, CHS used a Hoskins conversion run to lead 8-6.
Junior Bradley Bates’ 27-yard field goal made it 11-6 Campbellsville and Kyle Novak blocked a punt and Josh Roe returned it 30 yards to pay dirt with Bates tacking on the PAT for an 18-6 CHS cushion.
However, Fort Knox tallied the next three touchdowns, two in the second quarter and one in the third, to lead 24-18 with 8:51 still left in the third.
Campbellsville used a 40-yard Hoskins run to set up freshman Eric Lamer’s three-yard TD with 58.6 seconds left in the period.
The home Eagles stopped Fort Knox thrice, aided by a pair of Nicky Lamer sacks, in the final quarter to claim the win.
CHS hosts Pineville (4-6) this Friday in the first round of the KHSAA Class A play-offs. A win would probably send the No. 2-seed Eagles to a second-round game at Hazard (8-2) on Nov. 11. The Bulldogs entertain winless Lynn Camp this week.
