The Ryle Raiders came in against the Campbell County Camels tonight. Led by Tyler Durham (#18), the Camels successfully won an incredibly crucial game. Durham was effective running the ball as usual, but also highly effective in his throwing.

On the first drive, Camels' Grant Mahoney (#17) kicked for a scoring field goal. After Camels' Eli Mathews (#13) interception, the Camels began to drive across the field. Durham connected on a pass to Jake Zabonick (#83) who then ran in a touchdown with about thirty seconds left in the quarter. The extra point was good.
The second quarter opened with Camels' Durham running in an 8 yard touchdown—the extra point good by kicker Mahoney. Despite two penalties on the Camels, Camels' Avery Wood (#15) threw to Zabonick who ran in a touchdown with about eleven seconds left in the quarter. The extra point was good. The score for the first half was 24-7 Camels.
The second half started with a pass from Durham to Wood who ran in for the touchdown—the extra point being good. On the Raider's next drive; however, Nathan Davis (#7) passed to Pulice (#24), scoring a touchdown. That was the end of scoring for both teams in the 3rd quarter.
However, the fourth quarter began with Durham running in a seven yard touchdown, but the extra point was blocked. On the Raider's next drive, Thomas Baumann (#33) ran in a touchdown with the extra point good by the kicker Mead (#38). That was the end of the Raider's scoring as the Camels began their drive. Camels' Alex Howard (#28) ran in for the touchdown with the extra point being good. With that, the game ended with a final score of 51-20 Camels.
This game was especially huge for the Campbell County Camels because now they are 2012 District Champions. The Camels will be playing Boone County next week.
