Playing before a large homecoming crowd at Waterloo's Memorial Stadium, the Trojans dominated the Newton Cardinals for most of the first half.

The second half was all Newton.

The Cardinals shutout the Trojans in the second half, while scoring 29 second half points in the 56-26 win.   

East had some electrifying offensive plays, including an 80-yard touchdown run from Quarterback, Dylan Reyes, and a long, apparent touchdown run by Jacee Clark, but that was called back on a penalty. 1st half penalties along cost East an extra point, a touchdown and a late 1st quarter drive.
