Football roundup Cumberland, Newton drop openers

Paris bests Pirates

Cumberland found itself in a defensive struggle Friday night, and while the Pirate defense answered the bell, they fell 12-6 in their opener to Paris.

The Tigers scored early in the game when Hunter Morris scored from 17 yards out with 4:17 to play. The extra point was no good, putting Paris up 6-0.

Paris extended that lead to 12-0 coming out of halftime, scoring with 8:44 in the third on a 16-yard pass from Riley Spencer to Audie Temples.

Holden Elwood cut that lead to 12-6 less than four minutes later, scoring on a 10-yard run.

They'd never get closer as the margin ended at 12-6. Coach Kevin Maynard said the team didn't play well enough to take home the win.

"We just made too many mistakes," he said. "We had too many false starts, too many offsides. We made a lot of young mistakes tonight. We've got to go back to work this week."

Monte Wolke was 4-for-10 passing for 63 yards with no touchdowns and an interception, and carried the ball 16 times for 74 yards. Ethan Kemper had 10 tackles.

Cumberland (0-1) plays at Marshall (0-1) next Friday. Marshall lost to St. Joseph-Ogden 47-0 Friday night.

Eagles fall to Bethalto

Newton struggled out of the gate against Bethalto Civic Memorial and lost its opener 40-7 Friday night.

Bethalto scored the first 40 points of the game as the Eagles couldn't find their footing on the offensive or defensive sides of the ball.

"They had some broken plays that went for touchdowns, and they made some nice passes," said Newton coach Jason Fulton. "They did jump us early."

The Eagles scored their lone touchdown of the day in the fourth quarter, when Brock Mammoser hit Austin Angel for a 34-yard touchdown pass.

Mammoser was 5-for-13 passing for 60 yards and the score. Allen Taylor had nine carries for 41 yards, Lucas Huston tallied 10 tackles and Tanner Shull added eight tackles.

Newton (0-1) heads to Casey-Westfield next Friday night. Casey (1-0) topped Olney 44-36 in a barn-burner Friday night.

    Malachi Maxey was in the right place at the right time to maintain Brownstown/St. Elmo's 2-0 lead for, at least, one more inning.
