Preseason football: Newsome 37, Steinbrenner 33

LITHIA — Keller Powers ran for 165 yards, rushed for three touchdowns and scored another through the air to help lead Newsome to a 37-33 victory over Steinbrenner.

"The offensive line played amazing," Powers said. "The holes were there all night."

Newsome took a 7-0 lead on a five-play, 43-yard opening drive capped by a 13-yard run by Powers. An interception by Noah Schaller snuffed out Steinbrenner's first possession, and the Wolves took advantage with Powers' second touchdown.

The Warriors got on the board in the second quarter with a 2-yard run by Amari Brown, but Powers' third touchdown run with just 58 seconds left in the half gave Newsome a 21-7 lead.

Steinbrenner opened the second half with an 84-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Jake Carroll. Newsome responded on its next offensive play to go up 30-13.

The Warriors scored the next 12 points to narrow the margin to 30-25, but Newsome put the game away on a screen pass from Will Worth to Powers that ended up going 37 yards for a touchdown.
