Dogs come up short in game and for playoffs
Cooke
ALEXX COOKE HAD FOUR catches for 52 yards in Camdens 25-20, season-ending loss to visiting Chapin.
An uncatchable fourth down pass landed harmlessly on the Camden sidelines with a little more than four minutes left in Friday’s 25-20 loss to visiting Chapin, with the bouncing ball went the host Bulldogs’ AAA playoff chances.On a night in which the rains came early, stopped and then started again, the stars were aligned for Jimmy Neal’s troops to get into the post season. Thanks to A.C. Flora’s 49-19 dismantling of Dreher, a Camden victory would have left the Dogs in third place in Region 4-AAA. Instead, the five-point setback to the conference champion Eagles left Camden (5-5, 1-5), for the time being, last in the six-team circuit.After having hugged several members of his team on their way out of the locker room for the final time, Neal shook his head when told the result of the A.C. Flora contest. He then talked about a series of mistakes which paved the way for his team’s fourth straight defeat following a 5-1 start to the season.On this night, there were many miscues.
