The Eagles Defense held Grand Saline to just 21 offensive yards in Friday’s game in Henderson. To way that the Eagles defense has been good is a bold understatement. This defense has been great! The Eagles haven’t allowed more than 7 points in the last seven games. The only team that scored during this current run was Corrigan Camden and that was in the final seconds of the second quarter in a game where Newton won 56-7. Corrigan is still in the play-offs, defeating Winona last Friday night 54-40 and will advance to the 3rd round against Dangerfield. Dangerfield could be a possible rematch with Newton in the quarterfinals if both teams win this Friday.
