New Castle High School
New Castle’s season ended in the second round of sectional action 49-7 at Delta Friday night. The Trojans ran into a buzz saw early as Delta jumped out early and held a 42-0 halftime lead. NC never quit and scored with 15 seconds left on a Dalton Engle to Nate Woolard 20 yard TD pass. Jordan May added the extra point to give the Trojans their 7 points.
Offensively for NC, Senior Cody Werking ran 9 times for 22 yards, Senior Dalton Engle completed 5 of 11 passes for 70 yards and 1 TD, Senior Brady Renner had 4 catches for 51 yards, and Junior Nate Woolard had 1 catch for 20 yards and the TD. Freshman Nicholas Grieser returned 4 kicks for 65 yards, Senior Robbie Witham 2 for 24, and Freshman Triston Chesher 1 for 10.
Defensively, Junior Mason Bowers had 11 tackles and 9 assists, Junior Joe Thompson 7 tackles, Senior Jack Phillips a sack, and Senior Dylan Darling 3 tackles.
NC would like to thank the seniors for their leadership and dedication, leading the Trojans to only their 3rd sectional win all time. This group will be missed not only for their play, but for their leadership and effort. As always, WE ARE, NC!
