In their first real district test, the visiting Wildcats held Harlan to 141 yards of offense as they rolled to a 29-0 victory, handing the Dragons their first shutout loss in three years.
Senior running back Jimmy Chaffin led the Wildcats with 146 yards rushing and scored two touchdowns.
"If he's not the best football player in eastern Kentucky, there's not one," said Lynn Camp coach David Mitchell. "I thought every time he got the ball tonight he was going to score."
The Green Dragons had 47 offensive plays on the ground compared to 23 for Lynn Camp.
"I'd say they doubled us in plays ran. If I thought coming in that Harlan would have double the number of plays that we had and we'd win 29-0, I'd say you were crazy," said Mitchell.
Will Pope and Nathan Searcy recovered fumbles for the Dragons, and Pope also had an interception.
"The thing I was disappointed in tonight was the turnovers," Mitchell said. "We just needed to hold on to the football."
Junior linebacker Justin Gorsuch powered the Wildcats' defense with 13 tackles. Josh Reynolds, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound safety, followed with 11 tackles. Chaffin added nine.
"Justin has been subbing and has played well for us the past two weeks," said Mitchell. (Reynolds) was outstanding tonight. Jimmy showed his quickness and speed."
"They're a good football team," said Harlan coach J.B. Donahue. "There's no shame of getting beat by them. We should've been a lot more competitive than we were."
Lynn Camp scored a touchdown in each quarter.
On their second possession of the game, the Wildcats needed just one play to score. Chaffin raced 53 yards for a touchdown at the 7:43 mark of the opening quarter to take a 6-0 advantage.
Lynn Camp found the end zone again early in the second quarter as Chaffin scored on a 39-yard run. Quarterback Nick Scalf connected with Chaffin for the two-point conversion with 11:11 left in the first half.
The Green Dragons used 12 plays and moved the ball to the 27 with four minutes left before halftime. Nathan Searcy's 44-yard field goal attempt was blocked as Lynn Camp took over on its own 21.
Following an 11-yard punt, Harlan got the ball on the Lynn Camp 26 at the 2:33 mark. On fourth-and-nine on the 14, Lynn Camp was called for pass interference to give the Dragons one play from the 7. Teddy Thompson was stopped on the 3 as time expired.
"They controlled the line of scrimmage, and I think that was a big part of the ball game," said Donahue. "All I can say is we've got to get back to work next week and get better up front."
With seven minutes remaining in the third quarter, Reynolds intercepted a Jon Lundy pass and ran 51 yards for a touchdown. Chaffin's kick made it 21-0.
Lynn Camp's final score came with 10:22 to play. Following a 49-yard run by Chaffin to the 4-yard line, Joe Roskopf scored on the next play. Scalf's two-point conversion run closed the scoring.
Thompson gained 86 yards on 25 carries for the Dragons. Casey Belcher added 26 yards on 10 rushes.
"As always, they're a well-coached football team," Mitchell said of Harlan. "Their kids played extremely hard. They kept fighting and coming at us. Luckily, we were able to play some good defense and kept them off the scoreboard.
"Outside the Leslie County game, Harlan held us to the lowest point total all year."
Thompson and Derek Stephenson led the Green Dragons with six tackles each. Matt Lankford, Andrew Massingale and Shane Miller had four tackles apiece. Stephenson and Lankford each had two stops behind the line of scrimmage.
The last time the Green Dragons were shut out was a 20-0 loss at Middlesboro on Oct. 25, 2002.
Lynn Camp (5-1 overall, 2-0 district) returns to action Friday at home against Evarts. Harlan (3-3, 2-1) has an open date next week before traveling to Williamsburg on Oct. 7.
