Cardinals rally to knock off Knoxville
NEWTON — Back-to-back drives down the field spanning the end of the third quarter and into the fourth period powered Newton Senior High’s Cardinals to a 42-28 win in their home opener Friday. They trailed Knoxville High’s Panthers 21-14 at halftime and peered up at a 28-14 deficit following the second-half kickoff.
“We made adjustments at halftime. We knew we had to concentrate on their passing game and No. 6 (Tanner Dunkin) to stop them defensively. We gained that energy we had last week at Norwalk and came out ready to take the game over,” said Levi Michener, senior defensive back.
Michener admitted that allowing Dunkin to return the third-quarter kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown was not a good start. But after that, Michener and the Cardinal defense did the job.
