WALES  — Donald Camp flashed an ear-to-ear grin, paused for a moment, then put his performance into words.

“This is the biggest game I’ve ever had,” the Winslow High School junior quarterback said. “By far.”
Camp scored four touchdowns and freshman Dylan Hapworth rushed for a game-high 184 yards and a score on 18 carries to power Winslow past Oak Hill 43-22 in a Campbell Conference Class C game Saturday afternoon.

“This is great,” said Camp, who rushed for 67 yards and threw for 30 more. “This was a great win.”

Winslow (6-1) clinched a home playoff game with the victory. Oak Hill (3-4), which lost its second straight game after winning three in a row, suddenly finds its playoff aspirations in peril.

The Raiders likely will need a victory over rival Maranacook (6-1) in the regular season finale to secure one of the eight berths.

“We needed this one,” Oak Hill coach Dave Wing said. “We’ll see what happens now.”

The clock-killing, line-dominating Black Raiders led 21-0 in the second quarter before Oak Hill bounced back in the third quarter to make things a bit interesting.

Cody DePuy led Oak Hill with 132 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns. DePuy, who has rushed for 1,027 yards this season, scored twice in the third quarter to pull Oak Hill within 28-22. But that would be as close as it would get.

Camp rushed for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, from 1 and 6 yards out, to put the game out of reach.

Winslow piled up 438 yards of offense compared to 252 for Oak Hill. Winslow also controlled the clock, holding the ball for more than 29 minutes.

“The ground game got going,” Winslow coach Mike Siviski said. “We knew it was a big game. We knew

Oak Hill was frustrated after last week (it lost 27-24 to Winthrop). We’re glad to come out of here with the win.”

Hapworth rushed for a touchdown and helped lead a dominant ground attack that got several players involved.

Eric Crawley rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown while Joseph Hopkins added 44 yards on the ground.

Each of Winslow’s two fourth-quarter scoring drives went for eight plays, chewing up about seven minutes off the clock.

“It’s hard to play catch-up against them,” DePuy said. “We needed some stops and we couldn’t get them.”

Added Wing: “We came out in the second half and found some things that worked. But we couldn’t stop them. It was frustrating.”

Wing started freshman Alex Mace at quarterback before bringing in Parker Asselin in the second half.
Mace threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Potvin in the second quarter, but was sacked three times by junior defensive end Brock Deschaine.

Asselin gave Oak Hill a lift in the second half, throwing for 48 yards, but it wasn’t enough to chase down Winslow.

“This is disappointing for our seniors because we won’t get a home playoff game now,” Oak Hill senior captain lineman Zach Leeman said. “We struggled but we showed we could play with them.”
