LAFOLLETTE, Tenn.  |  Campbell County stormed back from a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter to surprise Oneida here Tuesday (Jan. 2), defeating the Indians 69-62 as the two teams returned to regular season play after the Christmas break.

Oneida led by as much as 14 points in the third quarter and by as much as 12 in the fourth quarter before the lead quickly evaporated amid a barrage of 3-point shots by the Cougars. A 26-point outing by was not enough for the Indians on a night when Campbell County knocked down 12 three-pointers.

Oneida was scorching from the free throw line, knocking down 14 of 15 attempts. But Campbell County also took advantage of its opportunities, shooting 88% from the line while going 46% from the field — including 44% from 3-point range. 

Oneida, by contrast, was just 25% from 3-point range.

The Indians started the game off strong, jumping to an eight-point first quarter lead. Campbell County settled in during the second quarter but was unable to come back and still trailed by six points at halftime, 34-28. 

The third quarter saw Oneida go on a surge. After Campbell County coach Ernie Mac Clawson was hit with a technical foul for protesting a traveling violation, Oneida hit its free throws to lead by 14 with 5:59 to play in the period.

Campbell County began to claw back after that, though. They made it a three-point game late in the period before Oneida again began to pull away. It was an eight-point game going into the fourth quarter.

The final period saw Oneida go back up by 12 before Campbell County began its comeback and took the lead for the first time. The Cougars scored 26 points in the final period, building the lead to seven points in the final minute.

While the game was not a district contest, it was a disappointing loss for an Oneida team attempting to build momentum heading into a stretch of tough district games that will begin with a visit from Gatlinburg-Pittman later in the week.
