With 5:47 to play in the third, Campbell hit Calvin Wilson for a 12-yard strike and then the senior closed Indy’s scoring by darting 29 yards for his third rushing TD with 3:01 to play in the frame.

His top target was Ty Lockwood, who hauled in six passes for 84 yards. Wilson closed with three grabs for 57 and Tre Hartwell added 55 yards on the ground on nine carries for Indy.

Blackman, which fell 38-9 at Ravenwood in Week 2, got on the board with 4:28 to play when Drew Beam connected with Jeremy Wagner for a 10-yard TD.

The Blaze slipped to 1-3. Independence improved to 2-1.

The Eagles head to Franklin in Week 5 for a crucial Region 6-6A contest. The Admirals stopped Summit 27-20 Friday.

The Mustangs threw out a couple big storylines entering the night and used four touchdowns from Alex Broome to race past Page and earn their first win after a couple tough losses against stiff competition to open the season.
