The Walnut Ridge Bobcats walked into an ambush Friday night at Newport's Greyhound Field. Newport jumped on the Bobcats for four touchdowns in the first quarter and two more in the second period en route to a 49-6 win in 3A-3 Conference football action.

Newport's defense was also strong, holding the Bobcats to just 80 yards of total offense for the game. The Greyhounds defense chipped in on the scoreboard by recovering two Walnut Ridge fumbles in the end zone, leading to 14 points.

Walnut Ridge's only points came on a 37-yard touchdown run by Andrew Brewer with 2:50 to play in the third quarter.

Colin Phillips led the Bobcats in rushing with 63 yards on 13 attempts. Andrew Brewer finished with 23 yards on eight carries, and Cade Burris added nine yards on two carries.

Nick Foster led Walnut Ridge's defense with nine tackles. Phillips and Burris each had six tackles, and Nash Gill contributed four tackles.

Walnut Ridge's record now stands at 2-3 overall and 0-2 in conference play. The Bobcats host the Osceola Seminoles for homecoming on Friday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
