The Newton High School boys’ basketball team started pretty well and were still in the game at the half, but Goddard Eisenhower went on a 27-12 third quarter run to bury the Railers 77-50 Tuesday at Ravenscroft Gym.

Eisenhower, 2-0 and ranked fourth in the Class 5A coaches poll, was led by Dylan Vincent with 32 points, 17 in the third quarter. Jordan Vincent added 15 points. Jeffrey Wake scored 11 points.

“We knew in our scouting report how dangerous (Dylan Vincent) was, especially in transition,” Newton coach Andy Hill said. “He’s very difficult to defend. For most of the first half, we did a good job of getting the ball stopped. The wheels just fell off in the second half. Our focus was slipping a little. Most of those layups came not on turnovers, but on missed shots where we just didn’t get back in time. We took care of the ball pretty well. They didn’t pressure us the way Emporia did. It was pretty much the same result when you give up a long rebound and don’t get back.”

Eisenhower finished 31 of 48 shooting, while Newton was 17 of 51. Newton had 12 turnovers to 16 for Eisenhower.

Newton was led by Ty Berry with 17 points and Darius Peterson with 13.

Newton led 6-2 in the first 2 1/2 minutes of play, but gave up an 7-1 run. Peterson hit a layup with 50.1 seconds left in the period, tying the score 9-9. Neither team scored in the remaining time in the quarter.

Newton got caught trading twos for threes early in the second quarter. A pair of Dylan Vincent layups off turnovers put Eisenhower up 21-13 midway in the second quarter. The Tigers led by 12 at the end of the quarter, 30-18.

Newton was three of 13 shooting in each of the first two quarters. Eisenhower hit three of 10 in the first quarter and 10 of 14 in the second quarter.

Newton was outscored 15-7 in the first 5 1/2 minutes of the third quarter, putting the Railers down by 20. Eisenhower continued to press its advantage, leading 57-30 at the end of the quarter.

Newton outscored Eisenhower 8-4 to open the fourth quarter as Berry hit the Railers’ first two 3-point shots of the game.

Eisenhower got the lead back up to 29, but missed a free throw that would start the running clock with 3:59 to play. Both teams dumped their benches at that point. Newton’s reserves beat Eisenhower’s reserves by two.

“I was proud of those guys,” Hill said. “They played hard. Chase Cassil gave up his body to dive to the floor and saved a possession one time. Our varsity guys, even though they were on the bench, they were supporting those guys.”

Newton hosts Campus at 7:30 p.m. Friday to open Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Division I play.

“They are pretty young,” Hill said. “They start a freshman and a couple of sophomores. They have some talented players. They are going to pressure us and try to speed us up on offense. Last year, we had big leads on them twice. They came back and beat us by two one time and we beat them in overtime in the other.”
