In a battle of rivals Saturday, Campbellsville pulled the surprise upset, shutting down a last-gasp effort by No. 3 Georgetown to win 28-24.
Georgetown (4-1) had a chance, trailing by four with time running out on the Campbellsville (4-2) 3-yard line. But Neal Pawsat's pass sailed through the back of the endzone as time expired.
"We had out chance at the end of the game to make the play to win it," said Georgetown Coach Bill Cronin. "That's what you want in a classic game such as this. We thought we had power up front and that Demonte (Smith) could make the three yards to the end zone. The plan was to spike it if we didn't, but Neal saw something so he didn't spike it and it just didn't work."
Campbellsville jumped out early, taking the opening drive down for a score — the first time the Tigers trailed all season. Georgetown responded and scored twice to regain control 14-7 on Smith's seventh touchdown run of the season.
