Lions stop Rams

Turnovers, lack of of­fense spell dis­as­ter in 56-0 loss to MLK

The Covington News - - Sports - By Eric R. Wal­lace

The New­ton Rams suf­fered a dev­as­tat­ing 56-0 beat­ing from the vis­it­ing Martin Luther King Jr. Lions Fri­day at Sharp Sta­dium.

M.L. King (5-1 over­all, 3-0 Re­gion 2-AAAAA) did ev­ery­thing to lose, but the Ram of­fense didn’t do any­thing to win as they were looking to post a .500 record at the mid­point of the sea­son.

M.L. King won the toss, but se­lected to give New­ton (2-4, 1-2) the first crack on of­fense and de­ferred un­til the sec­ond half.

New­ton started its first pos­ses­sion from its own 20-yard line but couldn’t get a first down as M.L. King’s de­fense held them for three downs deep in Ram ter­ri­tory.
