BOONE — Newton High’s freshman football team shut out host Boone 38-0 on Friday. The Cardinal freshmen are 2-0 on the season.
The Cardinals scored twice in the first quarter on a 16-yard touchdown run by Alex Thomason and a 13-yard TD pass play from Brody Bauer to Riley Mouchka. Jake Ingle had a 2-point conversion run following the Thomason score.
Up 14-0 going into the second quarter, Newton added two more touchdowns and 2-point conversions to lead 30-0 at halftime.
Clayton Wickliffe and Brenden West had TD runs of 19 and 3 yards, respectively and each had a 2-point conversion run.
Thomason added a 2-yard touchdown run in the third quarter with Ingle tacking on the 2-point run.
“We are really happy about going on the road for the first time and getting the win,” Newton freshman head coach Trent Powers said. “Our defense was great again and we are excited about the shutout.”
West had seven tackles and forced a Boone fumble to lead the defensive charge. Wickliffe and Evan Limbo each had five tackles. Thomason, Carson Satterfield and Isacc Chance had four tackles apiece.
Mouchka made three tackles and recovered a fumble. Cole Plowman had two tackles. Ingle recovered a fumble.
Offensively, Ingle rushed for 116 yards on nine carries and had one reception for 25 yards. Thomason had 77 yards on eight carries, Wickliffe had 21 yards on four carries and West had six yards on two carries.
Bauer was 2-of-4 passing for 38 yards with one touchdown pass and one interception.
“We executed a lot better tonight on offense. We consistently moved the ball and finished drives. We are going to take advantage of no game for us next week to make a lot of individual improvements,” Powers said.
The Cardinal freshmen play again at home on Sept. 20 against Waterloo East.
