CAMDEN WIDE OUT D.J. Wilson battles for extra yardage after this first quarter catch in the fog created by the CHS student body section in the opening minutes of Fridays loss to Hartville at Zemp Stadium.
Hartsville unleashed its big red and black threshing machine and put it a nearly identical effort against Camden as it did a year ago.Last season in Kelleytown, the Red Foxes used a 247-yard, four touchdown night from Brian Rivers to upend the visiting Bulldogs, 41-7. In Friday’s home opener for Camden at Zemp Stadium, Rivers and wingback partner and fellow junior Shy McPhail combined for 271 yards and four touchdowns as the third-ranked guests left town with a 48-9 victory.Rivers, who missed last week’s win over Lamar with a shoulder injury, scored on runs of 46 and 51 yards on his first two carries of the night in helping the guests spring to 13-0 lead in the game’s first eight minutes. McPhail did his damage after intermission as he went for an 80-yard scoring scamper on the first play from scrimmage in the second half before going in from 10 yards on his final carry.
