H.S. FOOTBALL: Pirates fall short at Campbellsville

RICHMOND — The Pirates forced six turnovers, but couldn’t overcome the loss of one of their biggest offensive threats Friday on the road.

Senior running back Hunter Wilson suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter and was not able to return to the lineup as Berea Community (2-7, 0-3 district) suffered a 33-6 loss at Campbellsville in the final district game for both teams.

The Eagles had just a 10-0 lead at halftime, but in the second half they returned a fumble and an interception for touchdowns and pulled away. Berea’s Eli Woodie scored his team’s only touchdown, a 70-yard TD pass in the third      quarter.

With the loss, the Pirates finish in fourth place in the district and will have to play Hazard on the road in the opening round of the Class A Playoffs.

“They gave us some opportunities,” Berea coach Adam Coleman said.

Berea had five turnovers and matched its season-low for points (six against Gallatin County).

The Pirates are set to wrap up the regular season Friday at home against Paintsville.
