PHIL CAMPBELL — It was just one of those nights for the Phil Campbell Bobcats. I was one of those nights where seemingly nothing can go right no matter how hard you try. The Bobcats fell to 2-5 as the Lexington Golden Bears took advantage of several Phil Campbell mistakes in route to a 57-8 win.
After falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter thing seemed to snowball on the Bobcats. Lexington blocked a Phil Campbell punt that led to a score. The Bobcats fumbled a kickoff that led to a score. All in the second quarter. Lexington led 27-0 at halftime.
It didn’t get any better in the second half. Phil Campbell fumbled the opening kickoff which led to another Lexington touchdown. Four minutes later Lexington returns a punt 55 yards for a touchdown. Later in the third the Golden Bears recover a fumble in the end zone giving the Golden Bears a 48-0 third quarter lead.
In the fourth quarter Lexington would score two more times: on a safety and touchdown.
The Bobcats were finally able to land in the end zone with just two ticks remaining on the clock. Jacob Hamilton pushed forward for a one-yard touchdown run. The Bobcats completed the two-point conversion on a pass from Hamilton to David Sparks.
Phil Campbell travel to Colbert Heights next week.
