It was a night to remember for Campbell County safety Jake Rebholz, capped off by his 35-yard interception return for a touchdown with 2:35 to go in the game that would prove to be decisive in the Camels 29-20 upset over the visiting Boone County Rebels.
Earlier in the fourth quarter, Rebholz also recovered a fumble by Boone County quarterback Bryson Thompson. In the game's opening half Rebholz made his mark on special teams, blocking a punt to produce a safety and downing a punt at the 1-yard line. All of the plays loomed large in the tight Class 6A contest.
Campbell County (2-3) also enjoyed a big night from senior quarterback Michael Kremer, who finished with 327 passing yards and a pair of TD strikes. Joel Geiman caught both touchdowns and finished with 85 yards and Corey Cox led all receivers with eight catches for 135 yards.
Boone County (2-3) got the game's first touchdown when Thompson connected with Caden Doyle on a 64-yard scoring strike, but the Rebels wouldn't muster much more. Senior running back Jordan Oppenheimer contributed with a 3-yard, second-half touchdown run.
The Rebels host Conner next weekend at Owen Hauck Stadium. The Camels travel to Ryle as district action continues.
