BURLINGTON — Newton High’s junior varsity football team played a rare Saturday afternoon game against host Burlington’s Grayhounds. The Cardinals powered their way to a 46-22 victory to improve to 2-1.

Newton scored first on a 60-yard touchdown run by Logan Cummins, but trailed 9-6 later in the first quarter. The Cardinals regained the lead when Dylan Farver scored from nine yards out.

The Cardinals went on to lead 34-16 at halftime. 

They scored on a 65-yard TD pass from Kyle Long to Julian Hotchkin, a 15-yard TD run by Cummins, a fumble recovery in the end zone by Ryan Barr. They also had 2-point conversion passes from Long to Cody Satterfield and Cummins.

In the second half, Farver and Long each had a 1-yard TD run.

Cummins had 121 yards on 16 carries. Long was 5-of-9 passing for 119 yards. Hotchkin made three catches for 105 yards.
