Newton freshman Jayden Horrach (25) ditches a Fort Dodge defender to run through a hole made by his blockers William Muckler (74) and Gavin Trostel (89) in Friday’s home game against Fort Dodge. The visiting Dodgers pulled out a 42-41 win over the Cardinals.

After falling behind 34-20 by halftime of Friday’s home game against Fort Dodge, Newton High’s freshmen rattled off 21 unanswered points in the second half.

The Cardinals were up 41-34 when a muffed punt was recovered by Fort Dodge late in the game. The Dodgers drove down for the winning touchdown and 2-point conversion for the 42-41 victory.

“We are really proud of the effort we gave tonight. We didn’t give up when we fell behind and came all the way back from a 14 point deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter,” Newton freshman head coach Trent Powers said. “We just couldn’t overcome some major errors on defense and five turnovers on offense.”

Dakota Adams rushed for 171 yards on 13 carries. He had touchdown runs of 77 yards, seven yards and 10 yards. Jay McGuire scored two rushing touchdowns from three and 14 yards out.

Cade Cupples went 3-of-5 passing for 93 yards. He hooked up with Gavin Trostel for a 20-yard TD pass play. McGuire caught two passes for 73 yards.

Christina Lampman carried the ball 11 times for 70 yards. Cupples gained 49 yards on seven carries.

Defensively, Owen Sanger racked up eight tackles, forced a fumble and blocked punt for Newton. Josh Meyer had five tackles and recovered a fumble. Jack Suttek had five tackles and broke up a pass.

Brody Cazett made four tackles. Jaden Dydell, Gavin Urias and Jayden Horrach each recorded three tackles.

Newton plays at 4:45 p.m. Friday at Southeast Polk.
