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.
