Football Cats Finish Season on a High Note

Posted

McKENZIE — The Bethel Wildcats closed their season with a 63-28 Senior Day victory over the visiting Campbellsville Tigers Saturday. Ten Wildcat seniors were honored in pregame ceremonies.

After a four-play, 64-yard drive that was capped by a 45-yard TD run from quarterback Christian Arrambide the Wildcats led 7-0.

Campbellsville suffered a first play fumble on their opening drive to give the Wildcats the ball right back in the red zone. Another touchdown run by Arrambide made it 14-0.

Vonte Bates again recovered a Tiger fumble and two plays later, Arrambide found Dieuly Aristilde from 24 yards out to give the Cats a 21-0 margin.

Campbellsville answered with an eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive capped by a Dakari Highsmith 17-yard touchdown run to cut into the lead with 4:32 left to go in the first.

Arrambide hit Aristilde again, this time for 46 yards as the Wildcats grabbed a 28-7 lead.

Early in the second quarter, CU made it a 14-point game again after Ormoni Zanders punched in a four-yard run to make it 28-14.

On the ensuing kickoff, J’Kobi Reddick fielded the kick on his own five yard line and took it all the way to the end zone for a 95-yard kickoff return to give Bethel a 35-14 lead. It was the second game in a row Reddick returned a kick-off for a touchdown.

Arrambide kept up his strong offensive performance in the first half with another long touchdown completion as he hit Caleb Nelson on a 33-yard score to add more cushion at 42-14.

The Tigers scored on a Josh Meglis touchdown pass to Kendon Young to cut into the Cat lead and the teams went to halftime with Bethel leading 42-21.

The only score of the third quarter was a Meglis 77-yard touchdown pass to Young.

The Wildcats scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Arrambide scored on a 5-yard run. De’Ontay Tate scored on a 45-yard gallop. Dominic Moore capped off the scoring with a 6-yard run.

The Wildcats finished 5-6 on the season while Campbellsville closed out at 1-9.
