Newton also scored a safety when Austin Gehring and Jacob Robbins sacked the Arkansas City quarterback in the endzone. Carlos Cornejo hit two PAT kicks. “We scored enough early that we got to play the B team in the third and fourth quarters,” Newton coach James Wiens said. “The defense played really well. The A team defense allowed just one or two first downs in the game. We had lots of downfield tackles. We also had a lot of penalties, but we were able to overcome those.” Newton is 1-3 and plays at 5 p.m. Thursday at Haysville West, both an A and B game.
