In a defensive battle, the New Heights Hawks kept Chesterfield/Ruby Rams out of the end zone and scored a touchdown on a busted play for a 6-0 win Thursday at Central High School.

The only score came when Alex Edgeworth fell on a Hawks’ fumble in the end zone. The conversion attempt failed.

New Heights Coach Billy Blakeney praised the defense for the shutout.  “I am super pleased at how well our defense played tonight.  Yet, our offense couldn’t manage to get it together as they never seemed to be on the same page.”

“Alex Edgeworth played awesome for us,” Blakeney said. “Even the Chesterfield coach had great things to say about what an outstanding player he is. It’s really good to have coaches from other teams say good things about one of our players.”
