Wildcats Roar

Lynn Camp evens record at 3-3 with 22-point win over Clinton County

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / The Endzone Staff

CLINTON COUNTY — One game in the win column doesn’t usually make that much of a difference, but in the case of the Lynn Camp Wildcats, this one did.

At least that’s what Wildcats’ head coach Phil Russell said after his team sealed the 50-28 win with a late interception by Matt Walker.

Russell gave his team all the credit for dealing with a lot of adversity this week, including being without both quarterbacks who had started this season as Austin Maier and Aaron Mills were both out with injuries.

“We installed the best offense we could come up with for our kids considering the guys we had at our disposal this week,” Russell said. “I give the credit to these kids for stepping up and playing through the adversity we’ve had all week because that’s what winning football teams do.

“We picked up a good win for our team and now we go into district play with a 3-3 mark as opposed to a 2-4 record if we had come up here and got ourselves beat,” he added. “I’m proud of my kids and the way they played tonight, but I’m more proud of the way they’ve handled the stuff they’ve been faced with all week.”

The Wildcats used a mixture of Tommy Hatfield and Keanu Nolen under center for most of the game, which is a position that is new to both players.

Hatfield came up big in the passing game, completing 9-of-14 pass attempts for 114 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while rushing for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries.

Nolen was the workhorse when it came to the running game though, carrying the ball 20 times for 188 yards and two touchdowns.

Lynn Camp struck first on a 19-yard touchdown pass from Hatfield to Tyler Reynolds to put the Wildcats on top, 8-0, with just over 8:00 to play in the first quarter.

Clinton County answered in a hurry with a 57-yard touchdown reception by Cole Nelson to trim the gap to 8-6, and it looked like the shootout was underway.

The Wildcats scored on their next possession when Hatfield connected with Trenton Medlin to push the lead to 16-6 with 4:23 to play in the first quarter.

Clinton County answered the Wildcats’ scoring drive once again, this time on a three-yard touchdown run by Dylan Wood to make the score 16-12 with less than a minute to play in the first quarter, but the opening period scoring wasn’t done just yet.

The Wildcats scored on the final play of the first quarter when Hatfield scampered in from three yards out to put Lynn Camp on top, 24-12, to start the second quarter.

The Wildcats scored two more times in the second quarter, once on a 53–yard hook and lateral that got Nolen into the end zone and again on a three-yard score by Nolen, giving the Wildcats a 38-28 lead at halftime.

After giving up 28 points in the first half, the Lynn Camp defense came up big in the second half by holding the Bulldogs scoreless, while picking up touchdowns by Hatfield (three yards) and Zack Hendrickson (three yards) to give the Wildcats the 50-28 win.
