H.S. FOOTBALL: Young helps Campbellsville get past Berea

BEREA — The Berea Community Pirates simply had no answer for Campbellsville running back Kendon Young in a 54-7 loss to the Eagles Friday.

The lanky sophomore was a one-man wrecking crew, accounting for seven touchdowns in the game.

Young racked up 259 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries. He also added two touchdowns on 70-yard and 88-yard punt returns and another on a 28-yard interception return in the second quarter.

Things looked pretty good for the Pirates early.

After Young raced 38 yards for his first touchdown to put the Eagles up 7-0, Berea answered right back on its next possession.

Quarterback Kevin Reed made a beautiful read on a Campbellsville blitz and tucked the ball and rambled 38 yards to the Eagles’ 21 yard line.

Corey Mowery ran up the middle for eight yards. Then Reed lofted a screen pass to Mowery, who raced 13 yards into the end zone to tie it up.

But, from there it was all Eagles.

Campbellsville made it 13-7 on a 46-yard scamper by Young on its next possession.

The Tigers’ defense then got in on the action, as Young picked off a Reed pass and took it back 28 yards to give the Eagles a 19-7 lead. On Berea’s next possession, Grant Adams blocked a punt and returned it 38 yards for a touchdown and a 25-7 Campbellsville lead at the half.

Young struck again early in the second half, taking a Berea punt 88 yards to paydirt to make it 34-7.

Adams picked up his second defensive touchdown of the night on Berea’s next possession, picking off a Reed pass and taking it back 75 yards to make it 40-7.

Reed picked up his second punt return touchdown with two minutes remaining in the third quarter to make it 46-7, then Stone Williams finished off the scoring with a 58-yard scamper early in the fourth quarter.

While the Berea defense had a hard time corralling Young, it did come up with some big plays of its own.

Robbie Watkins had a big night for the Pirates, picking off a pass in the first quarter, then coming up with a fumble recovery deep in Eagle territory in the third quarter.

Brenton Phillips also came up with a fumble recovery for the Pirates in the fourth quarter.

On offense, Cory Mowery led the way, running the ball 12 times for 43 yards, while Reed finished with 41 net yards and Jason Strong had five yards.

Reed was three-of-13 through the air for 64 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

C.J. Isaacs had on catch for 27 yards, while Mowery had two catches for 37 yards and a touchdown.

The Pirates return to action Friday when they travel to Paris to take on the Greyhounds in a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
