The Newton Eagles traveled to Henderson, Texas, Friday night to face the Paul-Pewitt Brahmas in the Area Round of the playoffs. The Eagles came into the game favored to defeat Pewitt. The Brahmas had another idea. They beat the Eagles 44-36.
It was a hard fought game by both teams and the Eagles have nothing to hand their heads about. Pewitt played well and executed a good game plan. This Eagle team is young. They have 8 seniors, 8 juniors, 16 sophomores, and one freshman. There is no doubt the future is bright for the Newton Eagles. This is just the beginning. Stay tuned for more great Eagle football in 2021!
