    Campbellsville (1-2) quickly demonstrated his concern was valid when Joe McKenzie returned the opening kickoff 94 yards to get the Eagles on the board 12 seconds into the game. The Eagles would use timely conversions throughout the night to frustrate their rivals.

    After an opening three-and-out series, the Cardinals fell victim again, as Thomas Downs converted on third down from 53 yards out to give the Eagles a 12-0 lead only 3 minutes into the contest.
