There was already a strong rivalry between Cole Camp and Windsor. Whether it was the rivalry, the heat or the confusion among the referees, tempers flared early at times from coaches, the players and the fans last Saturday. Not that it ever got out of hand, but it was noticeable to everyone in attendance. The blazing sun certainly didn’t help matters.
A little piece of shade, a drink of cold water and an occasional breeze were welcomed additions to a game that looked on paper like a toss-up.
 Cole Camp’s middle was suspect to the passing game and in the end, Windsor just took the game over.
Coach Kevin Shearer commented, “I thought I had our team ready to play in these conditions, obviously I was wrong. We knew going in when we made this offensive transition into a spread offense, we knew we would have some growing pains. I think you saw that today. We had drop balls and drops passes. If you make those plays, then the momentum is different. Heat issues were a factor.
I don’t like losing but we knew there would be growing pains.
 Ethan Ives was in basic training for the summer. This was his first game and he played at times like it. He is big and athletic. We were glad to have him back as well as having back Landon Baalman.”
Dalton Witherspoon would score at the 2:52 mark of the first quarter. Jonah Roberts would walk in for the two point conversion. Windsor led 8-0. Cole Camp would score, making it 8-6. Witherspoon scored again and it was 16-6 at the half.
Coach Shearer praised his QB Kaden Harms, “I told him interceptions would happen. He has to understand that. I felt he got it together in the second quarter. You have to have a lot of over confidence if you throw the ball a lot. I believe there was some glimpses that he is very special back there and he has to act special all of the time.” 
It took Windsor just two minutes in the second half to score again making it 22-6. Windsor would continue their onslaught and it was 42-18 before Ives would break through the line and intercept a pass right out of the QB hands for a 60 yard TD.
Cole Camp fell to 1-1 after a 41-7 drubbing of Concordia in week one.
Cole Camp will host Warsaw this coming Friday night at 7:00 PM. Don’t miss it!
