Football Set For Saturday Match-Up With Newberry
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba’s football team will likely not only have to battle Newberry this Saturday, but also the elements when the Wolves come to town for a 1:30 pm kickoff. Catawba looks to rebound from its lost last week to Wingate, while Newberry tries to build on a two-game winning streak.
Last week, with a light rain falling most of the game, Catawba dropped a 17-0 decision to Wingate. Cary Littlejohn had a solid day with 96 yards rushing, but the offense was held to just 266 yards and could not penetrate inside the Wingate 25 yard line.
Jamal Lackey led the defense with 11 tackles and Michael Peppers recorded a pair of sacks. The defense kept Wingate off the scoreboard until midway through the third quarter before finally surrendering a field goal.
Newberry topped Tusculum 38-31 last weekend. Trailing 24-17 early in the third quarter, the Wolves scored three unanswered touchdowns to take the lead. Alstevis Squirewell’s 32-yard interception return capped the outburst and put Newberry up 38-24 midway through the fourth quarter.
The Wolves ran for 336 yards on the day and put a pair of backs over 100 yards. Braxton Ivery totaled 108 yards, while Kevin Miller ran for an even 100 yards. In addition to his pick six, Squirewell also had a sack, forced fumble and recovery.
Last season, Catawba claimed a 37-34 win in double overtime on Mike Sheehan’s 11-yard strike to Carlos Tarrats. The teams were never separated by more than seven points in the back-and-forth contest that saw the game tied after each quarter.
The teams also played in a driving rain the last time Newberry made the trip to Salisbury in 2013. That night, Newberry posted a 37-0 victory that snapped Catawba’s streak of scoring in a record 211 games. This is the 79th meeting of the schools in football. Catawba holds a 39-36-3 edge in the series.
