Rams outshine Eagles

It may have been the most hyped scrimmage in Newton county football history. There were no kickoffs, punt returns, or hits to the quarterbacks but it was football, and more importantly to the community it was Newton vs Eastside. For the first time in two years Newton was back on top and defeated the Eagles 36-23.

Rams fall to Newnan 21-7 for first loss

Newton's bid to take down Newnan and open the season 4-0 for a second straight season never really got going Saturday. Poor field position, penalties and three turnovers sunk the Rams and it was the Cougars who avenged last year's stunning loss with a 21-7 win.

No play? No way

At some point, someone has to be held accountable for officiating mistakes in high school games. It's gone on too long. Each year, whether it's baseball, basketball, softball or football, amateur referees tasked to officiate high school games in Georgia continue to make mistakes but won't own up to them. Something has to give.

Wild Ram win

In what can only be described as a contentious final two minutes of Friday's Eastside-Newton game, The Eagles had the game won twice in the matter of seconds only to see watch the Rams steal the game on a late touchdown.

Collision course

Three years ago, Newton held the ball against Eastside the entire fourth quarter only to score the tying touchdown on fourth down with seconds remaining. A spirited overtime saw the Eagles hold on for the win after a critical stop on a two-point conversion. That epic matchup went down as the best game between the two rival schools to date. It was also the last time Eastside beat Newton.

Rams need work but are on the right path

Newton is a work in progress. Really you can say that about every high school football team. Seldom does a team hit the ground running and look playoff ready in week one let alone the preseason. And after watching the Rams play Rockdale Friday, it's clear they have a lot of work to do. The good news is they have a lot to work with. That and their defense would have scored 26 fantasy football points.

Runnin' roughshod

Friday night's matchup between Rockdale and Newton was just a preseason tuneup, which is fortunate for the morale of the Bulldogs.

Holding court

Newton volleyball made history Thursday against rival Eastside. The Lady Rams also made a statement. They topped the Lady Eagles 25-7, 21-25, 25-13 and 25-19 to take the best of five match and beat their county foes for the first time.

Late letdown

For six innings Tuesday, Newton softball played flawless defense and had control of its game with Salem. Ironically, what powered them to a 2-0 lead wound up aiding Salem to a 3-2 win.

Final tune up

Newton and Alcovy softball hit the diamond Tuesday for the only time this season against each other in a scrimmage before both teams open regular-season play Friday. The Lady Tigers will play in a tournament at South Gwinnett while Newton plays at Griffin in the Diamond Classic. Both teams had similar agendas - work out some bugs and see what needs work.

Justice is served

Former Newton defensive end Justice Ejike was the unequivocal leader of the Rams defense in 2009. He was their best player on that side of the ball. He was so good, he also played offensive line. Fast forward two years and he has a new role, one he isn't too familiar with.

A fresh start

With the softball season set to begin next week, Newton has a renewed focus going into the 2011 campaign. After a tough year that saw the Lady Rams go 5-5 in region play but 11-18 overall, they turn the page and look to get back to the basics.
