Kareen Guerrant scored four touchdowns, rushing for two, catching one from Brady Denham and returning a kick-off.

Despite looking strong in the first half and holding an 8-0 lead for most of the first half, the eighth-grade Cardinals couldn’t hold on for the win.

Elkhorn took advantage of Campbell miscues and used a lot of deep passes to escape with the 22-8 victory.

Blake Embry scored the Cardinals’ touchdown.

Campbell takes on Georgetown at home Thursday. The seventh-grade game is set to kick off at 6 p.m. with the eighth-grade game to follow.
