Tuttle at Newcastle -- final thoughts
By Jason Kersey
Well, the Tuttle-Newcastle game wound up not being as good as we had thought, but it did show us just how good Tuttle is.
The Tigers, who beat Newcastle 33-2 Thursday, knocked off another top-five team, and did so again without star running back Bryce “Paco” Moore.
Thursday night, senior QB/DB Sterling Koons was the star. He ran for 96 yards and two touchdowns in the win, and intercepted a pass on defense.
The season isn’t at all lost for Newcastle. Even though the district title seems unlikely now — Tuttle has now beaten both of its toughest district opponents — the Racers still have a lot to play for.
Namely, a home playoff game. If Newcastle can beat Clinton in Week 10, it will probably finish in second place and host a postseason contest.
And even if Clinton tops Newcastle, the Racers will still finish in third place, which is better than they have finished in the last two years.
