NAPLES  — Nick Newman broke through with a pair of touchdowns, one each from seven and three yards out, to pace the Mountain Valley falcons to a 34-7 win over Lake Region in a Class C South showdown Friday.

Lake Region started the game with a touchdown and put the Falcons back on their heels.

“They came out fired up,” Mountain Valley coach Pat Mooney said. “They were ready to play. They play tough, they have good, physical offensive line and it took us a quarter to get our bearings. Once we got our wind, we turned it around.”

Newman scored his first TD of the game to even the score after one quarter, and the Falcons soared into halftime with a 20-7 lead after Todd McKellick and Jacob Blanchard rumbled into the end zone.

Newman and Dylan Desroches scored in the fourth to ice the game and another big win for the Falcons.
