The Campbell Junior High football teams continue to roll, earning another pair of lopsided victories Thursday night.

Both the seventh- and eighth-grade teams defeated visiting Grant County at Cardinal Stadium.

The seventh-graders won 46-18 and the eight-graders won 48-8.

In the first game, the seventh-grade Cardinals took a 16-6 lead after the first quarter and built on that with a Jeremiah Mundy-Lloyd 60-yard TD run. After Grant scored on a loss pass play, the Cardinals struck again just before the half with a Carter Lowe one-yard TD run to cap a long drive.

In the second half, the Cardinals scored twice more, including a score from Mundy-Lloyd after his punt was blocked but he picked up the loose ball and sprinted 70 yards.

In the eighth-grade game, the Cardinals scored first on a safety and continued to put the Grant County offense around with their bigger linemen.

Dawson Gay returned the ensuing punt 48 yards for a score and Luke Ingram caught a pass for the 2-point conversion to give the Cardinals a quick 18-0 lead.

The Cardinals scored on a pair of Jackson Davis touchdown catches to lead 32-8 at haltime.

In the second half, the Cardinals added to their lead thanks to a nine-yard touchdown run from Kyle Price and a 35-yard touchdown run from A.J. Conner.

The Cardinals celebrated Homecoming between the games. They return to action next week when they travel to Georgetown to take on Royal Spring Middle School.
