Dragons down Cardinals with late TD
More than a month of futility for the Cameron High School Dragon Football Team came to an end last Friday after edging Benton 20-14.
A fourth-quarter touchdown by CHS senior running back Dom Hurst may have made the difference on the scoreboard, but his late tackle out of bounds on fourth-and-long secured the victory for Cameron – ending the Dragons’ six-game losing streak and securing Cameron’s first Midland Empire Conference victory of 2021.
“It’s not a one-man show. The linemen do everything. I just run the ball,” said Hurst, who rushed for nearly 200 yards, along with his two TDs. “It feels amazing. The crowd was going crazy. We had a chip on our shoulders. We didn’t want to lose this game.”
