September 27, 2019 Newport, OR – The Newport Cubs hosted the Philomath Warriors and picked up their first season win 26-3.

The Cubs started the game with on onside kick, which proved to be a successful idea.  Newport recovered the kick and worked their way down field through a good mix of running and passing and found the end zone.  With 8:41 on the clock the Cubs were up 7-0.

Neither team could score the rest of the first quarter.

In the second quarter and in the pouring rain Philomath had a few shots at the end zone but were shut down and had to settle for a field goal.  At the 9:03 mark Newport was still up 7-3 over the Warriors.  That would be the only score in the second.

The first part of the second half saw Philomath making a strong move.  Then, a Warriors’ pass was intercepted around the 20 yard line and ran back for the touchdown.  The PAT was good and Newport was now up 14-3 over Philomath with 8:44 on the clock.

There was no other score in the third.

The fourth belonged to Newport.  They added another twelve points and picked up their first season win.

Newport is now 1-3 and the Warriors are 1-3.
