Football - Fri, Oct. 8, 2010
Georgetown College's football team jumped out to a 28-7 lead on the road against Mid-South Conference East divisional rival Campbellsville and never looked back.
With the 52-21 victory the GC Tigers (3-2, 2-0 MSC) take the driver's seat in the division over Campbellsville (4-3, 3-1).
The two teams traded scores in the early going, but GC's defense flexed its muscle holding the explosive CU Tigers, which average 36.5 points per game, to just one touchdown until late in the second quarter. Georgetown answered that score with a drive to set up Alex Kreimer for a 35-yard field goal. Then just more than a minute later, Kaelin Ammons hit Blake Naylor on a 13-yard strike for a 38-14 halftime advantage.
Momentum seemed to shift in Campbellsville's favor in the third quarter when it held GC to around 50 yards of offense and scored the only points for a 38-21 game. But, Ammons found Coty Minnis for a 5-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter to put the game away.
Logan Osborne capped another drive late in the quarter for the final margin of victory.
Ammons was 18-of-28 passing for 299 yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing for 22 yards and a score.
Naylor led the ground attack, which accounted for 288 yards of offense. Naylor had 15 carries for 111 yards and one touchdown. Randy Doss and Osborne also found the endzone rushing.
Chris Gohman was the leading receiver with four catches for 87 yards and a score. Naylor had three catches for 40 yards and a touchdown. Minnis had three grabs for 39 yards and a score.
Georgetown returns to action on Homecoming Oct. 16 against Pikeville. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. at Toyota Stadium.
