The Camden Fairview Cardinals (6-1, 4-0) shut out the De Queen Leopards (0-7, 0-4), 49-0, Friday night to end what has been an eventful week for the student-athletes.

CF received the ball to start the game and scored on their sixth play when Martavious Thomas flipped the ball forward to AJ Alsobrook as he was coming in motion from 3 yards out.

The defense would then get their first takeaway of the night when Arquavion Martin hit a defender just passed the line of scrimmage, and Jabauree Spencer recovered the ball at the De Queen 20-yard line. After a first down reception by Jalen Goodwin on a third and four, CF would run the same motion play to score Alsobrook again from the 3-yard line.

DeQueen picked up a first down on their next offensive possession but ultimately punted the ball down to the Cardinal 20. CF would go on a 12-play drive before Kenny Lanford picked up a seven-yard rushing touchdown with just 23 seconds left in the first quarter. De Queen would go on their own 12-play drive, but it would end with the Cardinals getting their second takeaway on the night when Bacari Jackson hit a defender at the line of scrimmage and D.J. King recovered it at the Cardinals' 40-yard line. A play later, Thomas would find slot receiver Trent Haygood in the flat. Haygood froze a defender at 50 then cut back to the middle of the field to outrace the Leopards defenders for a 60-yard TD.

Nasir Khan, who was 7/7 for PATs on the night, boomed his second of four kickoffs to the end zone. The senior didn't have to punt on the night and the Leopards never started a drive beyond their own20 yard line due largely to Khan's kicking prowess.

De Queen started the drive on their 20 after the touchback but went backwards. After two negative runs, King would come up with a ten-yard sack. The punt would only go to the De Queen 30-yard and the Cardinals would go on a quick four-play drive that was capped by another Thomas pass to Alsobrook; this time from the 10-yard line and over the middle; to make the score 35 to 0 with 1:58 left in the half.

CF would get the ball again just before the end o the half and Thomas would find Alsobrook for a 40-yard pass inside the 5-yard line as time expired.

The second half was played under the sportsmanship rule. Dar'rell Atkins Jr would come in at quarterback and finished the night 5/5 for 59 yards. Lanford would find the endzone on a 70-yard run in the third and Rashaun Bush would find the end zone on a three-yard run in the fourth.

Thomas finished the game 15/21 for three touchdowns, 231 passing yards and 53 rushing yards unofficially. Alsobrook finished with 68 reception yards and three touchdowns. Jarvis Reed and Jymarrion "Juicy" Hopson combined for over 50 receiving yards and Haygood finished with over 75 receiving yards and a touchdown. JaQuavious McKinney and William Henton Jr had big catches and flashed in the second half. The Cardinals will host the Hope Bobcats (1-6, 1-3) next Friday at 7 p.m.
