NEWTON — Newton’s junior varsity football Cardinals could not get their offense in gear to move against visiting Dallas Center-Grimes. The Cardinal junior varsity lost 37-0 to the visiting Mustangs Monday at H.A. Lynn Stadium.
DCG scored three touchdowns in the first half to claim a 20-0 lead at the break. Cardinal turnovers allowed the Mustangs to have great field positions on their way to 17 second-half points.
“Dallas Center-Grimes plays so well defensively, it created opportunites for its offense. We seemed to play the whole game in our own territory,” said Tom Weeks, Newton assistant coach.
Weeks pointed to the play of Collin Jacobsen and Justin Ruiz-Pittman and Blake Anderson, who had a couple quarterback sacks on defense. He said Duncan Lee and Jake Bennett played well on the offensive side of the ball for the Cardinals.
Newton’s junior varsity travels to Adel DeSoto Minburn next Monday.
