HAYSVILLE — The Newton High School boys’ soccer team opened Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Division I play with a 4-1 loss to Campus at Colt Stadium.

Newton scored on a corner kick from Santiago Fernandez to Eduardo Lopez-Garcia.

“Played well, just missed opportunities up top and broke down in the defensive third and they took advantage of our mishaps,” Newton coach Scott Jantzi said. “Energy was good throughout the match. Everyone on the field gave 100 percent.”

Campus is 6-3. Newton falls to 6-4 and hosts unbeaten Maize South at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
