H.S. FOOTBALL: Berea falls to Lynn Camp, 28-26

RICHMOND — The Pirates got four rushing touchdowns from Hunter Wilson and had a 12-point second-half lead, but couldn’t hold on for a district win on the road.

Lynn Camp scored the final 14 points of the game and picked up a 28-26 win Friday at home over Berea Community (2-5, 0-1 district).

“I don’t feel like we came out very strong tonight,” Berea coach Adam Coleman said. “We didn’t have a lot of intensity in the first half. It wasn’t until about the second quarter that we got into it.”

Wilson scored twice in the third quarter as the Pirates looked to be in control.

Lynn Camp fumbled on its first possession of the second half, leading to a Wilson rushing TD. Moments later, the senior found the end zone again to put Berea up 26-14.

Lynn Camp scored in the closing seconds of the third quarter on a long pass play, then scored again with about nine minutes left in the game to take a two-point lead.

Berea moved the ball down the 20-yard lie in the closing minutes, but fumbled the ball away on fourth down.

The Pirates took an 8-0 lead in the first quarter on Wilson’s first touchdown, then tied the game just before the half (14-14) on a 50-yard run by the senior.

Berea failed to convert on three two-conversion opportunities.

“That was the game right there,” Coleman said of the missed two-point conversions.

Berea is set to return to action Friday at home against Williamsburg.
