Newton trying to shed bad luck of early season
The Newton boys basketball team’s 53-52 season-opening victory over Boone was an exciting one, but it was also an early indication of how the team would play in the early part of this season.
After that victory and a 55-50 road win over ADM, the Cardinals (2-4, 0-2 Little Hawkeye Conference) have since dropped four in a row and have followed a similar pattern in nearly every game of that stretch.
The toughest loss of the season was a 64-30 Little Hawkeye Conference opener at Norwalk Dec. 7. The Warriors caught fire early and led 21-0 after the first quarter, but stayed hot throughout the game and didn’t really allow the Cardinals a shot to start a comeback.
