Canadian V Newton State Championship Coverage

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The Canadian Wildcats lost to the Newton Eagles 21-16 at the 3A Division 2 State Championship game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

The Newton Eagles went into the game on a 29 game winning streak with a lot of D1 talent. Newton’s head coach was recently given eight months to live. He is now on his nine month, so the team was playing with a purpose.
