The Cougars wasted no time claiming their home field as they met the San Lorenzo Rebels in their home opener. Newark won 53 to 6 by playing great all-around football. They marched the ball down the field from the outset, introducing fans to a great night for the offense.
Senior Mark Morton ran for 204 Yards as the offensive
line opened holes in the San Lorenzo defense all night. Not to be outdone, the Cougar defense stepped up and put pressure on the Rebels Quarterback Andre Benson who spent his time in the game running for his life; he was sacked three times.
Cougar junior defensive back Aaron Miller made a great play, picking off Benson and Newark led at the half, 18-0. The Rebels were held to just 71 yards. Marty Leggett had a great night with 66 yards
Newark will be in the thick of things this year as the battle for Mission Valley Athletic League supremacy is up for grabs.
