The Lynn Camp Wildcats are coming off a bye week and they have hopes of defeating Clinton County this week.

By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

David Mitchell’s Lynn Camp Wildcats have had a week off since their controversial loss to district foe Campbellsville and the 12-6 overtime loss has still left a bitter taste in Mitchell’s mouth.

“That loss is still bugging me,” Mitchell said. “That was an important game — it could have probably cost us a district championship. But with that said, I’m going to have to get over it.”

A win over district foe Clinton County would definitely help things out.

“Oh yeah it would,” Mitchell said. “If we get a win, I’m pretty sure it would clinch a playoff spot for us.

“This game isn’t going to be easy, Clinton County has improved,” he added.

The Bulldogs enter the game with a 2-5 record and dropped a 54-26 decision to Williamsburg last week after falling behind, 38-0.

“They ran the ball pretty well last week against Williamsburg,” Mitchell said. “They are a better running team for sure.”

Clinton County will have to try to find a way to contain the Wildcats’ running attack if the Bulldogs want to win.

Wesley Steele is one of the top running backs in the state with his 1,042 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Tyrone Person has compiled 196 rushing yards and two scores on the ground, while Dylan Napier has 107 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

“We’ve got to get ready for them,” Mitchell said. “It’s a road game, so it’s going to be tough. We’ve got to play better on offense and defense to win.”

If Lynn Camp can get a win against Clinton County this week, it will put more importance on the Wildcats’ next district game against Williamsburg.

“That’s going to be a very big game for us,” Mitchell said.
