Newsome's Wing-T offensive relies on running the ball, and even a rash of injuiries in the Wolves' backfield won't stop them from sticking to the game plan.

Leading rusher Conner Powers left Friday's game with a right hamstring pull. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday, and coach Kenneth Hiscock is hopeful Powers will be able to play this week against Newsome.

The Wolves were already without backup Darnell Tucker, who has a high ankle sprain and is probable this week.

Regardless, Newsome received a nice performance from Vince Pennington, who ran for 86 yards and 2 touchdowns on 12 carries in Friday's 20-3 win over Leto.

"We're still going to run the Wing-T and we're still going to run the ball," Hiscock said.
