Weather shortens Cards’ rout of Saydel
Sadly, Friday night might be remembered more for what was happening in the skies above H.A. Lynn Field than what transpired on it.
Mother Nature cut short the Newton football team’s fun vs. Saydel on Senior Night, but the Cardinals came away with a dominant performance nonetheless. Newton dominated the Eagles, 35-0, putting itself on the doorstep of its first playoff berth since 2007.
The Cardinals scored touchdowns on five of seven possessions in the first half and were in the middle of their eighth when lightning forced the teams and fans to clear the stadium for a delay. When it was deemed the delay would be lengthy, and with a blowout on hand, coaches from each team agreed to end the contest with three minutes left in the second quarter.
