CAMPBELLSVILLE — The Lynn Camp Wildcats knew that with a win Friday, they could be playing for a district title next week against Williamsburg, but sometimes things don't work out like you plan.
After a 48-6 loss to the Eagles, Lynn Camp coach Phil Russell said he was almost in shock, but admitted that his team must move on to next week's contest with another goal in mind.
“We just came out in the first half and didn't execute early,” Russell said. “We were in good position to score, but we threw a couple of picks and didn’t do what we needed to do.
“I’m not making excuses or anything, but they changed their defensive scheme on us to a 3-4 and it wasn’t what we had practiced against all week,” he added. “Basically they just came out made more plays than we did and they just took it to us. Hats off to them because I was very impressed with the way their football team responded tonight.”
After taking a 35-6 lead to the locker room at halftime, Campbellsville was able to add two more scores to extend the lead to the final margin of 48-6.
With the loss, Lynn Camp will have to win next week at Williamsburg if they hope to host a playoff game this season. Russell said that the focus of his team is to host a playoff game, but knows his team will have a tough task in front of them next week.
“We’ve still got to come out and win next week if we want to host a playoff game,” Russell said. “They are a good team, so it will be a challenge.”
WIth the loss, Lynn Camp falls to 3-5 on the season with games against Williamsburg and Middlesboro remaining on the regular season schedule.
