COACH BARRY NORTON'S COMMENTS: "Going into this year, with what they had coming back, Camden was going to be one of the favorites in this league. We had to go on the road, and so we knew it was going to be a big challenge for us. They scored their first possessions, we matched them on ours. We created a turnover in the kicking game, scored again, returned a punt for a touchdown, and pretty much controlled the tempo of the game in the first half.

"In the second half, we toook over. They were more physical than us with their offense; they were able to run the football, control the clock and get points. We were up 20-6 at the half, and we needed to get it to a three-score game to make them throw the football. We never could get there. If they had got into a game where they had to throw the ball, it was going to be a huge advantage for us.

"They took the lead late. We had one timeout. We hit a big play on third down: Braylon made a great throw, Torie made a great catch. We got it down inside and scored to win the ballgame. It was a great game for the win and, the big thing was, it was was a great thing for our kids to learn to keep fighting, keep plugging and that you're never out of it. There were some ups and some downs, but the team rallied around and found a way to win a ballgame."
