Newton JV football team wins

Newton High’s junior varsity football team notched a 19-6 win at home over visiting Marshalltown on Monday.

The Cardinals got out to a 2-0 lead when the football was snapped over the Bobcat punter’s head for a safety on Marshalltown’s first possession of the game. The lead increased to 9-0 when Logan Cummins ran 26 yards for a touchdown and Will Cheng kicked the extra point.

In the second quarter, Kyle Long capped a Cardinal 50-yard drive with a 5-yard TD run. Josh Meyer booted the extra point for a 16-0 lead by halftime.

Following a scoreless third quarter, Meyer kicked a 40-yard field goal with six minutes remaining in the game to put Newton up 19-0. Marshalltown drove for its only score on the next possession.

Cummins led the Newton rushing attack with 83 yards on six carries. Long went 7-of-15 passing for 84 yards. Julian Hotchkin made four catches for 60 yards.

Newton turned the ball over seven times in the game — six fumbles and one interception. It was penalized 45 yards.

The Newton defense recorded five quarterback sacks led by Lucas Clayton with 3.5 sacks.

The Cardinal junior varsity hosts Southeast Polk at 6 p.m. Thursday at H.A. Lynn Stadium.
