McBee runs over Camden Military, 42-0

Like a squeamish movie-goer at a slasher film, Camden Military Academy head football coach Will Rice could not bring himself to look at the video of his team’s 42-0 loss to previously winless McBee in a game played last Friday night in Chesterfield County.When asked if there were any positives which came out of the game for his team, Rice stopped for a moment before giving his answer.“I haven’t even looked at the film yet, I was so disgusted after the game,” he said.The loss was the seventh in as many outings for the Spartans, who will close their season on Saturday when the Q Foundation out of Charlotte comes to Spartan Field for a 2:30 p.m. contest.As for the McBee game, the host Panthers unleashed their wishbone attack on the CMA defense and had their way in attacking on the perimeter and between the tackles, Rice said. It was the first time in which the Spartans’ defense went up against the wishbone and, it showed on this night as McBee lined up behind a large offensive line and could not be stopped.“It was tough,” Rice said of the challenge of trying to stop the MHS offense. “We got beat up along the line of scrimmage, which leads to your having a long night.”With the success which the Panthers were enjoying on the ground, it made the passing game obsolete.“They didn’t have to pass the ball,” Rice said, “not with the big chunks of yardage they were getting without having to throw the ball.”CMA made one serious foray into MHS territory in the first half, but the Panthers turned the guests back to help keep the shutout intact.“We shot ourself in the football with penalties and mistakes,” Rice said.
