ALEXANDRIA, Ky. – Ryle scored in the third play of overtime en route to a 21-14 win over Campbell County on Friday.
The Raiders dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and as a result earned them a road victory.
The win was the third straight for the Raiders (4-5, 2-1), while the Camels (4-4, 0-3) dropped its third consecutive decision, all of which in district competition.
The two teams battled to a 14-14 tie at the end of regulation. Campbell County won the coin flip and decided to play defense first, but the Raiders' Ryan Woolf rumbled to pay dirt from nine yards out.
The extra point kicked by Grant Beagle gave Ryle a seven-point advantage.
On Campbell County's possession, quarterback Carson Plessinger’s pass in the end zone on 4th and 11 fell incomplete to give Ryle the win.
The Raiders scored first at the 4:01 mark of the first half when running back Colin England used strength and speed to find the end zone from 30 yards out. England, who eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the season on this windy night, used two stiff arms to avoid would-be Camel tacklers.
Unfortunately for Ryle, the two-point conversion failed, keeping the score 6-0.
Campbell County took what turned out to be its only lead of the game in the second quarter. Plessinger powered his way into the end zone off the left side for a one-yard score. Trey Schierenbeck’s extra point gave the Camels a 7-6 advantage.
England scored his second rushing touchdown with just over two minutes left before halftime. Quarterback Ryan Rytlewski’s pass to Eric Wright for the two-point conversation gave the Raiders a 14-7 lead going into the intermission.
Both teams held each other scoreless in the third quarter but Campbell County scored on the first play of the fourth quarter. Plessinger threw a 30-yard pass over the middle that Gabe Kremer caught in the end zone to tie the score at 14.
Ryle struggled to hang on to the ball in the second half by committing three turnovers. Jacob Ginter and Dylan Rich each recovered fumbles and Eli Matthews intercepted Rytlewski, but Campbell County failed to take advantage.
The Raiders play their final regular season game next Friday, hosting Dixie Heights. A Ryle victory would cause a three-way tie between the Raiders, Dixie Heights and Simon Kenton at the top of the district standings.
Campbell County will try to get its first district win at home next week against the Boone County who is also winless in district play. - See more at:…
