Campbellsville too much for Colonels
by Seaborn Ellzey JPI Sports Comtributor
This past Friday night the Caverna Colonels took the field against the
Campbellsville Eagles and two hours or so later found themselves on the
short end of a 61-6 score. The Eagles came to town with a 6-2 record to
take on the 2-6 Cavernians and the .750 winning % boys looked to be well
deserving of that seasonal tally sheet with an almost impenatrable defense
coupled with am impressive ground game that tore up the sod for 247 yards.
However, as rudely as Campbellsville treated the homestanding Colonels the
Caverna squad treated themselves almost as rudely by coughing up five
fumbles, being penalized for almost 100 yards, having a punt blocked plus
an intercepted pass. With all these gifts, in addition to their very
efficient offense and defense, the eagles soared to a 55-0 halftime
margin. To their credit fought the Eagles’ reserves evenly in the second
half with each team scoring a single touchdown to account for the 61-6
The Caverna score came on an 18 yard aerial from Devon Paul to Devon Perry
in the fourth quarter. Anthony Eakles led the Colonel offense with 28 yards
rushing ana 27 yard pass reception followed by Dytanius Franklins 12 yards
on the ground. Defensively, Trevor Nichols and Franklin each rang up 6
stops while Perry had a nice game in the secondary.
Caverna will end their regular season at home against Metcalfe County next
Friday, October 30 with kickoff slated for 7:00 pm.
