Fighting Tigers muster only two David Hon field goals.

Campbellsville University was unable to get started offensively Saturday as the visiting Tigers were held to 232 yards on the road at Georgetown College as part of a 31-6 loss.
David Hon scored the Tigers only points with a pair of field goals, each from the 34-yard-line.
It was a heavy defensive day for Campbellsville, spending 36 minutes on the field through 77 plays.
Senior linebacker Dwight Houston led all defenders with 14 total tackles, including seven solo stops and three sacks for 20 yards. The three sacks were the most by a CU linebacker in a game in more than a decade.
Georgetown jumped on top early 14-0 after two possessions. The home Tigers converted 5-5 third downs and were 1-1 on fourth down to start the game, scoring on a third-down, 15-yard pass to Randy Doss followed by a third-down, 9-yard pass to Doss. Both passes came from Neal Pawsatt, who completed 20-38 attempts for 268 yards and three touchdowns in the game.
Campbellsville answered Georgetown’s second score with Hon’s first field goal. Patrick Henry moved the maroon Tigers down field with the help of a 15-yard face mask penalty and a 23-yard pass to Demytreus Gipson to set up the first 3-point try.
The drive helped give the CU Tiger defense a rest and in response, Campbellsville posted back-to-back three-and-out series before Georgetown added a 24-yard field goal by Alex Kreimer before halftime to lead 17-3.
In the second half, Campbellsville cut the score to an eight-point difference on its first drive. Gerwan Brewer, who made his first appearance after a three-game absence due to injury, carried the ball 36 yards into Georgetown territory to set up Hon’s second field goal. Brewer finished the game with 51 yards to lead the Campbellsville backfield.
Georgetown scored twice more in the second half, as Doss scored his third TD on a 32-yard run with 2:21 remaining in the third quarter and Coty Minnis caught a 13-yard Paswatt pass in the final three minutes of the game after a Campbellsville fumble.
Carl Ojala led CU’s special teams with nine punts, the most in the Perry Thomas era. He averaged 39.1 yards per punt and placed three inside the 20, extending his consecutive game streak with at least three punts inside the 20 to five games.
Campbellsville (3-3, 1-2 MSC) returns home to Finley Stadium on Saturday for a 2:00 start against University of the Cumberlands for homecoming.
