DODGE CITY — The growing pains for the Newton High School girls’ basketball team continued with a 62-14 non-league road loss to Dodge City Tuesday.

Newton was two of 31 from the field. Dodge City was 25 of 50.

“We did have a little bit of trouble scoring,” Newton coach Kate Bremmerman said. “We’re going to work on layups and free throws tomorrow and try to finish them. If we would have made our layups and free throws, it would have been a little closer.”

Brenna Gutierrez led 2-0 Dodge City with 12 points. Alisia Astorga Solis added 12 points.

Olivia Antonowich and Hayley Loewen each had three points to lead the Railers.

Newton fell behind 9-0, breaking the run with an Alexis Epp free throw. The Red Demons led 18-1 at the end of the quarter.

Newton’s sole field goal of the first half was an Antonowich 3-pointer with 6:44 left in the first half. The Railers trailed 35-9 at the half.

Newton was outscored 6-0 to open the third quarter. Lexi Valle-Ponds broke the run with a jumper with 2:45 left in the quarter. Newton trailed 52-11 at the end of the period, setting off the running clock in the fourth quarter.

Newton is 0-2 and plays Bishop Carroll at 6:45 p.m. Friday in the AV-CTL-GWAL Challenge at Koch Arena.

“They’re young like we are,” Bremmerman said. “We’re going to come out and work hard. We’ll do our best. It’s a good experience for our upperclassmen to play at (Koch Arena)."
