Camden jumped out in front and answered the challenge every time Woodrow Wilson came within striking distance to win their annual Thanksgiving game, 39-28.
Camden scored a minute-and-a-half into the game on a 35 yard pass from Monte Williams to Alijah Clark for a 7-0 lead. Wilson came right back and scored when Nick Kargman hit Muheem McCargo down the left sideline for a 37-yard score. The extra point failed and it was 7-6, Camden.
Woodrow Wilson went in front when McCargo scored from a yard out early in the second quarter to make it 12-7. Camden then drove down the field and Williams scored on a 10-yard run to put Panthers back in front, 14-12. A bad punt snap on Wilson’s following possession resulted in the punter throwing an incomplete pass, giving Camden the ball on the 22. A Wilson penalty moved the ball to the 11 and Williams ran for a touchdown on the following play.
Ramer Nock intercepted for Camden on the Wilson 40 to begin the third quarter. Williams found Clark for 23 yards to the 17 and then scored his third touchdown on a 6-yard run.
The fourth quarter began with a 53-yard pass from Kargman to Stanley King to the 25 and the drive ended with McCargo scoring on a 3-yard run. The two point conversion was successful for a 27-20 score. Camden answered the score on a Williams pass to Nicholas Cataldo for a 29-yard touchdown. McCargo went 60 yards down the left sideline to the 10 and finished the drive with another 1-yard score. Another two-point conversion was successful to make it 33-28 with four minutes to go. Williams found Corey Palmer for 33 yards and the Panthers picked up three first downs before scoring on a 1-yard run by Nock. Wilson had one last chance deep into Camden territory but turned the ball over on downs.
Camden ended the season on a high note and Wilson now moves on the the bowl game at Giants Stadium next Saturday. Overall, it was a game between two good teams and the cold didn’t bother me.
