Pelham secured first place in Division III South by beating Campbell of Litchfield 48-13 Friday night, and will be the home team when the conference title games are played in in two weeks.
Pelham led 14-7 after one quarter, 35-7 at halftime and 42-13 after three quarters.
Perhaps the game’s biggest play was an interception that Zack Conway returned 95 yards for a touchdown with 3:45 remaining in the second quarter. Campbell was threatening to cut its deficit to 14 points at the time, but Conway’s TD and the fifth of Harley Kearney’s six point-after kicks capped the first-half scoring.
Pelham will finish the regular season unbeaten if it can defeat Farmington-Nute next weekend.
