Rams look to move to .500, take on MLK
Newton looks to avenge a 47-12 thrashing it took at the hands of MLK last year when the Rams welcome the Lions to Sharp Stadium tonight at 7:30 p.m.
The Rams come into tonight’s game riding the emotion of a 42-36 overtime win over Redan on the road Friday. With two wins at the midpoint of the season, Newton has already eclipsed last year’s win total. Coach Nick Collins hopes his team will respond and defeat an MLK Coaches: MLK, Corey Jarvis; Newton, Nick Collins Records: MLK (4-1, 2-0) Region 2AAAAA); Newton (2-3, 1-1) Last week: MLK, defeated Douglass 41-26, Newton defeated Redan 42-36 (OT) Prediction: MLK, The Rams come into this game with something to prove. They have been in every game this year and have given up big plays at the wrong times. If Newton can limit the big play, it has a chance to steal a win. MLK has tremendous speed and will be tough to stop.
