Cougars subdue Mission

The Newark Memorial Cougars opened up a 34-0 lead over the Mission San Jose Warriors at halftime with an impressive ground and air attack. In the 48-20 win on their home field, the Cougars attacked from the start as the Offense pushed Mission back on their heels. Holes opened for Newark runners and by the end of the game, Cougar rushers had over 426 yards to their credit.
Mission did not give up with out a fight, however, as they closed the gap late in the second quarter and the third quarter with 20 unanswered points including touchdown passes from quarterback Tarmin Sarwary to speedy receivers James Gao and Ryan Walleman. However, Newark closed the door when they were able to take advantage of a Warrior fumble on its own 7-yard line early in the fourth quarter. Mark Morton took it in on the next play. Aaron Miller would also add a game-ending 32-yard run to extend the lead and cement the victory for the Cougars.
