The Newton County Recreation Commission held its four football championship games and The News made sure to have you covered.

In the opening game, The Bulldogs defeated the Hurricanes 29-7 in an entertaining game to claim the Training League championship. The second game of the day pitted the Tarheels in a shootout against the Seminoles for the Division 1 championship and it was the ’Heels coming away with a 40-21 win.

The two late games to decide the other two divisions were equally as entertaining. The Yellow Jackets took home the Division 2 championship with a 28-6 win over the Hurricanes. The final game of the day was another shootout. The Division 3 Hurricanes exacted revenge for their lower-tier brethren with a 38-21 win over the Buckeyes.

It was a great day overall. The weather was perfect and all kids involved had a great time. Win or lose, your all champions in our eyes.
