Decked out in new camouflaged-themed game jerseys in honor of Military Appreciation Night, Camden went old school in its 14-0 win over previously unbeaten Lancaster last Friday night at Zemp Stadium.Having softened up the visiting Bruins’ defense with three pass plays in their opening drive which resulted in a touchdown, the Bulldogs left the game to their defense and a clock-chewing ground attack to help snap a two-game skid and give Jimmy Neal’s troops a 2-2 record heading into Friday’s non-region finale at Lakewood.The shutout was the first registered by the Bulldogs since a 20-0 victory at Lakewood on Oct. 22, 2010. Camden allowed Lancaster 231 yards in offense on 52 snaps. But the hosts’ defense came up huge with DeSonta Cauthen returning a third quarter interception for a 71-yard touchdown to give the Dogs a two-touchdown cushion.
