CHS goes for home play-off game Friday vs. Berea

By Bobby Brockman


Campbellsville High School used six interceptions and 11 defensive plays for negative yardage to post a 48-6 home-field district triumph over Lynn Camp on Friday night.
The Eagles (2-6) took the lead for good when Zach Durham’s 51-yard pass to Dra Thornton set up a Josh Roe 21-yard TD burst and the first of six Bradley Bates’ point-after-touchdown kicks.
The Purple and Gold defense then took over with Durham intercepting a pass on the CHS 10-yard line and scampering 90 yards to pay dirt.
Less than two minutes later, Durham had another theft and returned it to the one-yard line with teammate Eric Lamer picking up the loose pigskin and scoring on the next play from scrimmage for a 21-0 Campbellsville cushion.
The visiting Wildcats scored on the second play of the second quarter when junior quarterback Aaron Mills tallied from four yards out.
Hayden Webb’s 46-yard run set up Thornton’s six-yard touchdown before the Eagle defense returned to the forefront. (Webb totaled a team-high 72 yards on the ground and led CHS in tackles with eight.)
Kendon Young picked off a Mills’ pass and when virtually untouched down the left sideline for a 52-yard TD.
Campbellsville added a touchdown each of the third and fourth frames.
Quarterback sacks by Grant Adams and Deston Ford set up a Durham keeper for a 17-yard score.
Another Ford sack and a deflected punt preceded Young’s 20-yard TD run on a reverse with 10:39 left in the tilt.
Durham finished with three interceptions while Young had two picks and his fellow freshman Tavon Hunter had one.
The Eagles host Berea (2-6) this Friday with a road trip to Fort Knox on Oct. 26 closing out regular-season play.
The play-offs are scheduled to begin Nov. 2.
