Fast start lifts Webb in road rout of BGA; Campbell gets 3 TDs

Webb School of Knoxville’s Spartans continued its on-the-road domination in a 30-0 shutout over Battle Ground Academy Wildcats in Franklin Friday, Oct. 25.

The Spartans jumped ahead early as senior running back Brandt Campbell scored an 80-yard touchdown on the first offensive play of the game.

Spartans head Coach Dave Meske said, “We were very consistent offensively, we moved the ball well. Parker Wormsley is playing great as a freshman; he had two completions that were around 50 yards each, one for a touchdown.”

Wormsley finished the game two for two passing for 103 yards, the most passing yardage in a single Spartan game this season.

Campbell finished the game with 128 yards rushing, 103 yards receiving and three touchdowns.

Senior running back Derek Boyce was also effective, finished with 129 yards rushing.

Meske was pleased with the team’s performance as a whole.

“This was our first shut-out of the season. Defensively we are getting better and better every week. Camp Arnett played a great game on defense.

The Spartans were ahead 16-0 at the half.

Both teams were fighting for the playoffs. Webb came into the game 5-3 while the Wildcats were 6-2.

“If we had lost that game, we would have been out of the playoffs,” Meske said.

He added that the Wildcats might not be out for good as there is still the chance of a three-way tie.

“Next week is a big game,” Meske said. “If we win that game we are in the playoffs for sure.

The Spartans will host the Baylor School Raiders at Faust Field at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 2.

“Baylor has had a down year, but they have a lot of good athletes and they have a great tradition,” Meske said.

Though this will most likely be the most important game of the season for the Spartan’s, Meske is confident in his wing-T offense and in the ability of his defensive to hold Baylor.

“Right now, at the end of the year we do not ever do anything different we are just trying to get better at what we are doing,” Meske said.
