    Default Caldwell County 48 Fort Campbell 35

    Final.

    Not a lot of details except it appeared the game was close until Caldwell scored 2 late 2nd qtr TDs to go up like 31-14 at the half and maintained a fairly comfortable lead in the 2nd half but never completely put the game away, but, also, were never in danger of losing. Sindelar had about 400 yds thru the air and 6 TDs on the night.

    I was at the game and it was close until the Falcons turned the ball over and refused to ever punt on 4th down. Both teams combined for a total of over 1,100 yards on the night. Elijah Sindelar ended up 25-43 391 yards with 6 TDs 0 INTs. Fort Campbell RB Tristan Luke is a BEAST. He is the best player I have seen this year, not in the Blue and Gold. Sindelar threw 3 TDs passes to Eli Pepper, and 1 each to Josh Young, Dee Cain, and Elijah Anderson. Junior kicker Brett Seymore had a big night with 2 field goals of 28 and 41 yards. Junior RB Jaylen Boyd, from Caldwell County was ejected late in the game and things stayed rather chippy the rest of the way, as Fort Campbell also had a player ejected from the game, and the handshake line after the game turned into a scrum for a few seconds. Overall, a good game, but not really in doubt after midway through the 2nd quarter. Caldwell ended the game by taking a knee on the Fort Campbell 1 yard line.

    Fort Campbell actually outgained Caldwell County 560 yards to 552 tonight.

    We had Luke with 228 yards rushing and 4 TDs and the one reception for 30 yards and a TD.

    Sindelar finished with 380 yards and 6 TDs passing. Eli Pepper caught 3 TD passes while Jordan Young, Dee Cain and Elijah Anderson each had one.

    It's the second-most yards in a game ever for Sindelar.

    A good hard-hitting game. A shame about the personal fouls and ejections late in the game.

    Caldwell County is ok now, but if someone in the playoffs figures out a way to move the chains and keep the offense off the field, they may be in some trouble because of the yardage they allow.

    22 points/369 yards to Christian County (5 turnovers) and 35 points/569 yards to Fort Campbell -- the two best teams on their schedule so far.

    Of course, the big question remains is there anyone who can solve the Caldwell County offense?

    I'm guessing there is only the 1

    The Murray game will be one they should win but it will be a game that will be important for Caldwell to grow in so they are ready for the playoffs. I am their biggest fan outside Princeton every week but the one and want to see them take that title home

    I'm thinking there might be 1 team that can give a blueprint for the rest of 2A

    Yeah, but the problem is, Caldwell doesn't play Henderson County this year.

    The really funny thing, though, is that Caldwell County really does look at the way Mayfield does things as sort of a blueprint for success.

    O'Cath handled Henderson in the scimmage 28-7 (When they were healthy). Even healthy O'Cath is 14pt underdog to Caldwell. So I think he meant Murray or Mayfield could set the blueprint.

    If I am Caldwell County, I am worried about the defense. It is very difficult to win a state title without a good defense. A defense that gives up over 500 yards is a problem that needs to get better.

    Unless you plan on scoring every time you have the football, like Caldwell plans on doing. Ft Campbell was fast and had a good mix of run/pass. Their defense was real fast and strong and Sindelar wore them down. Keeping up with Caldwell's offense is the key.

    I agree. Catholic runs the same up temp offense. They wear teams down. Catholic is getting all it's injured players back this week and next week. They will get to play alot faster then they have the past couple of week.

    Caldwell's Sindlear is the best QB in the state. Alot of people will say Barker, but Sindelar is just as good in my opinion. He's just a junior.

    Getting way ahead of ourselves but I believe Mayfield has the all the ingredients to beat Caldwell.

    Fast, good QB, getting better on defense and played a much better schedule. A loss won't hurt either team but nobody wants to lose. In a few years I believe these teams will be in the same district.

    Caldwell County isn't worried about how many yards it gives up. It just wants to create a couple of turnovers and get a couple of stops.

    Caldwell simply wants to have more points on the scoreboard than you at the end of the night, whether that's 17-16 or 57-56.

    The difference in the Fort Campbell game was Caldwell won the turnover battle 3-1 and made a pair of defensive stops on 4th and short. And Caldwell turned most of those into points.

    The only mistake Caldwell made against Fort Campbell was trying to run some clock after it got up 48-21. The Tigers should have just kept trying to score, IMHO. Fort Campbell took advantage by making a couple of stops of its own, getting a couple of scores and very nearly making a game of it at the end.

    I wonder how close Caldwell County is to going 3A in the next realignment. If memory serves, Caldwell and Union County were the two largest 2A schools the last time.
