Winning night for area football teams
All three teams pull off victory

Each of Newton's two games this season have been decided by late scores.

Both have been dramatic and both have been hard played. However, one was a loss (to Eastside in the opener), and the other a win.

Newton literally needed the entire game to pull off an upset at No. 3 Lowndes (ranked by Score Atlanta), winning 15-14 at Martin Stadium Friday.

The Rams were trailing 14-9 as they drove down field. On third down Lowndes committed a pass interference penalty, giving Newton another chance, and a closer shot at the end zone. The Rams took advantage of that shot as Romario Johnson threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to Davonta Jones as time expired.

Newton will have a week to let the win soak in, before traveling back to South Georgia to face Valdosta Sept. 20.

Eastside wins

Eastside continued its early season offensive output, beating Jacking 49-28 on the road Friday.

The Eagles have now scored 83 points in their two games of the 2013 season. The Eagles opened the year with a 34-28 win over Newton, and look to clinch the county championship, when they play Alcovy Friday.


Alcovy completes sweep

Alcovy made it a win for each Newton County high school football team Friday, defeating Perry 21-10 at Sharp Stadium Friday.
