Newsome 14, Durant 6

LITHIA — Trent Cornwell's interception at the Durant 20-yard line with one minute remaining dashed the Cougars' hopes of a comeback and sealed Newsome's first win of the season.

Cornwell gave the Wolves a 7-0 lead on the game's first possession before Newsome's defense took over.

Troy Green and Gavin Garrow recovered two fumbles that kept Durant out of the end zone, allowing Matt Klenke to connect on a 20-yard pass to Ron Noble for a 14-0 lead.

Durant's Daniel Coan found John Hicks late in the fourth quarter to cut the lead, but Newsome's defense finished strong.

"I told our guys to man up and get after them," Newsome coach Ken Hiscock said. "We stepped up to the plate and got a big turnover at the end to put it away."
