(Anita) Strong play by the CAM defense early on combined with Fremont-Mills turnovers allowed the Cougars to keep the game close in the first half before Fremont-Mills rose up in the second half.
Defending state champion Fremont-Mills took a big step towards eliminating any doubt that they are an established program as opposed to a one year wonder in their hard fought 49-16 win over CAM Friday night. Fremont-Mills marched down the field in less than two minute on their opening drive and capped it off with a Spencer Phillips three yard touchdown run. CAM was able to hang with a very big Fremont-Mills team throughout the rest of the first quarter and tied the game on a 49 yard screen pass from Trevor McKee to Brady Runyan. With the game tied at 8 late in the opening quarter, Fremont-Mills returned the kickoff for a TD and never looked back. Spencer Phillips scored his second of three touchdowns late in the first half from seven yards out to give Fremont-Mills a 22-8 halftime edge.
Fremont-Mills size and power was on display in the second half when they ran for four touchdowns. The Knights, who extend their regular season win streak to 21 games, got two TD's from Clayton Wilson (55 and 22 yards) in the second half and onother from Mackenzy Lang (9 yards). CAM's final score of the game came in the final minute of play when Jarrad Cavin reeled in an yard pass from Trevor McKee.
CAM drops to 2-2 while Fremont-Mills is 3-0.
