The Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds rolled off their 13th straight victory on Friday night as they beat the rivals, the Newport Wildcats, by a 56-14 margin to claim the Firemen’s Bell.
Junior running back Dylan Hayes led the way for NewCath (8-0, 3-0) as he rushed for three touchdowns. Senior quarterback Brady Hightchew threw for 376 yards and two touchdowns and added another 170 yards on the ground in the win.
Newport (4-5, 1-2) was tied at 14-14 late in the first half and only trailed by seven at the break. However, the Thoroughbreds scored 28 unanswered points during the third quarter to seal the deal.
The Wildcats’ Jashawn Short completed 13-of-21 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown, a 79-yard connection to Daylin Garland. Garland also scored on an 11-yard run in the loss.
NewCath welcomes Holy Cross next Saturday in a game that will decide the district champs. Meanwhile Newport will look to bounce back as they wrap up their regular season at home versus Lloyd.
