Scotties stay perfect

After a close first half, Freeman added to its collection of victories with a 33-13 win over visiting Newport on Friday night in a battle of the Northeast A League’s finest.

Derek Harter caught two touchdown passes from quarterback Cody Unfred in the first quarter and it looked like another blowout. But the Grizzlies’ Travis Martin responded with a rushing touchdown and a touchdown pass to bring Newport (4-2, 2-2) to within seven points at the half.

Quinn Robinson sealed it for Freeman (6-0, 3-0) in the second half with two touchdown runs. He finished with 208 yards on the ground.
