*Campbellsville lead 13-6 in the fourth quarter and they were driving when Bethlehem forced its third fumble of the second half.  On the ensuing Bethlehem drive, quarterback Matthew Hagan scored on a 45 yard run and then scored on the two-point conversion. That score gave a Bethlehem a lead of 14-13.  Campbellsville then took the ball and drove from its own 9-yard line to the Bethlehem 22 where they were stopped with 5 seconds to go giving Bethlehem the 14-13 win.

** Bethlehem held a 34-0 lead at the end of the first period. The Eagles scored multiple ways in the first half including the standard rushing and passing touchdowns to go along with a fumble recovery TD and two interceptions returned for TDs.  Bethlehem did surrender a 66-yard TD run to Fulton County in the first half.  Reserves supposedly played a large portion of the game.
