GIBSONTON — Newsome captured its first victory of the season, defeating East Bay 30-22 on Saturday. The game was postponed Friday because of inclement weather.
The Wolves came out of the gates fast, scoring two TDs in the first quarter as Newsome quarterback Will Worth rushed and threw for scores of 17 and 18 yards, respectively.
Newsome led 14-8 at the half but East Bay continued to make the game interesting. Wideout Eric Hood threw for a 48-yard TD to Christian Angulo, giving East Bay the lead in the third quarter.
But Worth dominated the second half, rushing for 126 yards and TD. He finished the game with 19 carries for 155 yards and three total TDs.
The fourth quarter belonged to Newsome as it controlled the running game and the clock. Wolves kicker Austin Cobb gave his squad the game’s final points with a 42-yard field goal with less than two minutes to play.
“Worth is a top-notch football player,” Newsome coach Kenneth Hiscock said. “He played amazing today and led our team to a victory.”
