Wildcats pick up home district win over Berea

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

LYNN CAMP — The Lynn Camp Wildcats used a second-half comeback and a fourth quarter defensive stand to help seal a 28-26 win over Berea at home to put them at 1-0 in all-important district play.

A two-yard touchdown run by Aaron Mills late in the fourth quarter put the Wildcats on top for the first time since the game’s opening score when they led 8-0, but that lead was all it took to seal the win.

Tommy Hatfield led the way on the ground with 101 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries, while Jesse Keith added 52 yards and a touchdown on nine carries, while also passing for one score.

After the game, an emotional Phil Russell talked about how proud he was of the way his team battled back and came away with the victory.

“We didn’t execute most of the game, but we pulled it out,” Russell said. “I told these seniors this week that it was going to come down to the fourth quarter and we’d have to see who wanted it more. I guess we figured it out.”

Berea scored first in the game to grab an 8-0 lead, but Lynn Camp answered on a seven-yard score by Tommy Hatfield to cut the lead to 8-6.

The next score for Lynn Camp came on a 47-yard pass play from Keith to Mills to give the Wildcats a 14-8 lead, but that was all Russell’s squad would muster for the first half.

The Pirates however, scored 12 unanswered points to close out the first half to take a 20-14 lead into the break. A quick third quarter score extended Berea’s lead to 26-14 and apparently woke the Wildcats up.

A third-quarter drive capped by a two-yard scamper by Keith cut the Berea lead to 26-21, setting up a fourth quarter comeback attempt.

After forcing the Pirates to punt on two possessions and recovering a fumble on a third, Lynn Camp rallied in the form of a 75-yard drive, capped by Mills’ two-yard score to take the lead.
