Louis Clyburn had a good feeling as he led North Central back onto the field for the second half of Friday’s game with in-county rival Camden Military Academy. Across the way, his opposite number and CMA head coach Will Rice, was hoping against hope that his Spartans could finish the job.In what was easily the closest game played between the two neighboring programs, the host Knights used a fourth quarter John Bowers-to-Hunter Wyant touchdown pass to overcome a 14-12 deficit and celebrate homecoming with a 20-14 win over the stubborn Spartans.The victory gave the hosts a 2-2 record while CMA saw its record even out at 1-1.With the Spartans carrying a 14-12 lead into intermission, both coaches had the same thing on their minds. For Clyburn, it was for his Knights to wear down their guests in the second 24 minutes and take control of the game.
