CAMDENTON — After an abysmal second half, the Lebanon High School football team (4-2) saw a 28-7 halftime lead diminish as the Camdenton Lakers (5-1) took the Highway 5 battle, 34-28 on Friday night at Bob Shore Stadium.

The Lakers took the lead with 2:20 left in the game on a two-yard touchdown run by Eli Griffin to give Camdenton their first lead of the game. The ‘Jackets would be stopped on a long fourth down play as senior quarterback Ty Glendenning was sacked before CHS ran out the clock.

With a 21 point deficit to overcome, the Lakers got the necessary stops and scores to mount the comeback. It all started on the first possession of the second half when Camdenton drove 68 yards in six plays as junior quarterback Paxton DeLaurent found senior wide receiver Cash Calton with 10:38 remaining in the third quarter to cut the lead to 14.
