NEWSOME 35, WHARTON 7

Wharton's plans of repeating last year's 21-20 victory over Newsome literally got washed away. What was originally suppose to be a home game for the Wildcats ended up being a road game as their home field was unplayable due to the recent rain. This gave Newsome (3-3) the opportunity for redemption.

KEY DRIVES: Wharton struck first on the opening play for the offense. Quarterback Bryce Martin connected with Mikel Sperringer down the right side for the 63-yard touchdown. But the drive of the night belonged to Newsome. The game plan for the Wolves seemed to be to pound the ball. And on their first drive, they did just that. The drive consisted of five plays, all runs, and ended with Bruce Anderson III answering with his own 60-yard rushing touchdown to tie the score - and give all of the momentum to the Wolves.

STAR OF THE GAME: Anderson owned the first half, in which he accumulated 107 of his 112 yards. He also scored all three of his touchdowns (60, 6 and 1 yards) in the half.

STATS OF THE GAME: Wharton only mustered 120 yards of total offense and four first downs. The Wildcats only had one first down in the first half; Newsome had 14. The ground game belonged to Newsome, which outgained Wharton 263-5.
