NEWPORT 25 BAINBRIDGE VARSITY BLUE 12
The Varsity Blue squad met Newport Saturday on a rainy afternoon at Strawberry Park. The soggy conditions made play difficult, but the two teams battled in a tight, hard hitting contest. Newport opened the scoring with a 40 yard fullback rumble. Bainbridge answered immediately with a 60 yard strike from quarterback Sam Kallas to running back Matt Stone. Bainbridge took the lead early in the second half on a two-yard plunge by Stone, but Newport went ahead 19-12 in the fourth quarter. With Bainbridge driving for the go ahead score late in the game, Newport ended the drive with an interception on their 15 yard line.
Defensively, several tackles for losses were registered by linebackers Jackson Larkin and Tino Peleti. The Blue squad next takes on Renton this Saturday at Strawberry, by which time their parents will have hopefully washed the layers of mud from their sodden uniforms.
