    Watched the game and I felt the officiating was good. In every game you can pick out a few plays and say they missed this or that....because they did. I didn't see anything blatantly missed. I didn't think Jolly was fouled as much as he forced a tough shot with 3 defenders on him. but, he is your "go to" and that who you want taking that shot.

    No call on the last play I’m ok with. The play before that when Jolly was driving and ball goes out of bounds, he was absolutely hammered, and ref swallowed his whistle. Same ref made the “stepping out of bounds” call, it wasn’t even close. And finally the “reaching” call after the Trinity guard lost possession of the ball, was absurd. Definitely impacted the game and outcome. Trinity fans won’t admit it, not asking them to do so. Just as Camels fans know the better team lost, it happens in sports all the time. Trinity is a good team, no doubt. They’re guys played hard. Campbell County’s performance during the last week truly demonstrated to all just what kind of team they had. Great season Camels thinks for the ride. Your efforts on and off the court have been and continue to be, appreciated by your community. Camel Pride!

    I always cringe when I hear "the better team lost". It's one game. Stuff happens. Maybe Campbell County is the better team. Maybe Campbell County played as good as they can play. Maybe Trinity played poorly. We see it all the time. Beechwood beat Covington Catholic 2 out of 3 times this year. I'm still not sure if Beechwood is the better team. Beechwood beat Campbell County in their one meeting. Should Beechwood fans be crowing about being a better team than Campbell County? Beechwood lost to Cooper by 24 the first time those two played and then Beechwood beat Cooper in the regional. We could probably go through all the top teams and find similar examples.

    It was a great effort by Campbell County and on that day they came up just short. Trinity was a little better in that game. Got to give them credit for being better in that game on that day.

    Pretty well sums it up.

    Understand the frustration, but that kinda statement is weak sauce.
