Newton coach W.T. Johnston isn't one to downplay championships when he thinks his program is in contention for the title.

NACOGDOCHES -- Arp coach Dale Irwin said earlier this week that his team would have to play a perfect game to take down Newton.
Newton fell into real trouble for the first time all season in last week's Class 3A Division II, Region III semifinal playoff game against Elysian Fields.

JASPER -- Elysian Fields put Newton on the ropes early in Friday's Class 3A Division II, Region III semifinal playoff game, but the local favorite to win state championship next month made enough plays down the stretch for a 30-20 win at Jasper's Bulldog Stadium.
Two second-quarter touchdown runs by J.D. Spikes allowed the Eagles to come back from a 14-0 deficit established by the Yellowjackets through the first play of the second period.
