Campbellsville High School's Eagles tallied 21 fourth-quarter points to begin district play with a 33-12 victory at home on Friday night.
Lynn Camp scored first on a blocked punt, which the Wildcats recovered in the end zone.
Michael McCubbin's 76-yard run in the second quarter knotted the score at 6-6.
"We spread them out in the first half and made them chase us," said Eagle coach Herb Wiseman of his team's game plan. "Then in the second half, we just lined up and ran it straight at 'em."
And run it they did.
Thomas Downs ran for 11 yards into Lynn Camp territory before Zach Altman reeled off a long run to the Wildcat 29-yard line before going 28 on the next tote to set up his 1-yard tally.
Lynn Camp used a fake punt to set up its only offensive score, an 11-yard pass play late in the third frame to re-tie the game at 12-12.
Aaron Schwoebel hit Donovan Pittman on a crucial third-down pass play for 14 yards and an Eagle first down. The conversion set up McCubbin's 60-yard score and put CHS on top for good.
"We've got a lot of great athletes, but my hats are off to our big guys up front who were opening some huge holes for our backs to run through," Wiseman offered.
The Eagles expanded the lead when Altman tallied again from a yard out and then caught a two-point pass from Schwoebel.
Campbellsville concluded the scoring when Bryton Taylor went 51 yards on three carries, the last 12 going to pay dirt before Taylor Price booted the extra point.
McCubbin finished with 174 yards rushing while Altman had 90.
Altman and Taylor paced the Eagle defense with 13 and 11 hits, respectively, while Jamar Atkinson added seven.
Campbellsville, 1-2 overall and 1-0 in the district race, plays at undefeated Green County on Thursday night.
