HAYSVILLE — The Newton High School football team is still looking for a complete game, but the Railers still managed to get their first win of the season. Newton downed Campus 16-6 Friday at Colt Stadium in Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail Division I play. “It was an ugly game, but we didn’t get our heads down with the penalties,” Newton coach Brent Glann said. “We didn’t get our heads down about anything. We just kept coming at them and fighting. I thought we dominated the game. We had some trouble with their blitzes. We’ve got to get that figured out. We also have to stay out of long yardage situations where they can blitz us. “Penalties killed us. We had three touchdowns called back because of penalties. I know one was legitimate. I’ll have to look at the film to figure out the other ones. It was just an odd night. It’s good to get the win. Wins are hard to come by in this league.” Newton improves to 1-2 overall and in AV-CTL I play. Campus falls to 0-3, 0-2 in league play. The win was Newton’s second league win in three years of AV-CTL I play. Jack Kingsley rushed for 106 yards for Newton, followed by Derrick Garnica with 73 yards. Coleman Kingsley rushed for 43 yards and two touchdowns. Coleman Kingsley also passed for 74 yards. Campus quarterback John Becker hit 18 of 27 passes for 108 yards. Kaiden Ivy rushed for 40 yards. Campus was held to four yards rushing. “Matt Willis played an very good game at defensive back for us, and made some really good plays,” Glann said. “Braeden (Morrison) has played so well on defense this season. The whole defense was flying around and having more fun. We forced some good turnovers tonight.” The Railers had some shaky moments on both sides of the ball early in the game. Campus broke several third-and-long plays on its first possession to get deep within Newton territory. A field goal attempt was blocked. Newton went for a fourth-and-short play with Coleman Kingsley getting sacked at the Railer 20. Cory Martens stripped a Campus ballcarrier for a turnover. The Railers then broke several long plays, setting up a one-yard Coleman Kingsley run. The Railer defense held Campus to a three-and-out. Newton drove to the Campus 11, where Braxton Stahl hit a 25-yard field goal. Braeden Morrison picked off two Campus passes. The first, Newton turned the ball back over on downs four plays later. The second set up a one-yard Coleman Kingsley run with 1:36 remaining in the half. The Newton defense held again, getting the ball back at the Railer 38 with 34.4 seconds to play. Newton drove to the Colt 14, where Lucas Payant intercepted a pass. Newton got into Campus territory to open the second half, but struggled with penalties. On fourth-and-18, Coleman Kingsley threw an interception to Campus’ Gabe Chavez. A Newton touchdown was called back because of holding. Newton had a penalty on the following play as well. The Railers gave the ball up on downs at the Colt 17 with 5:12 remaining. Campus lost yardage on its first play of the series, but broke out with a 32-yard pass on its second. A Newton touchdown on a 52-yard fumble recovery was called back because of a face mask penalty. After a Campus penalty and a play that lost yardage, J.T. Harlamon hit a 41-yard pass to Chavez for a score with 2:23 to play. The snap on the PAT was bad, allowing Newton to stop the play. “We let them out on some third-and-long plays tonight,” Glann said. “They have some Class 6A-level athletes here. We were able to shut them down. They got one late on us.” The on-side kick went out of bounds. Newton hosts Hutchinson at 7 p.m. Friday for homecoming. Hutchinson fell to Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst 35-31. “They are extremely good,” Glann said. “We have seen them on film several times. They do everything right and everything at full speed. We’re going to get after them and give them our best shot.”
