Indians drop SAC game

Staff report
Statistically, Catawba held its own, but special-teams miscues and turnovers handed Newberry a relatively easy SAC victory on Saturday night.
Newberry reeled off 26 unanswered points and beat Catawba 33-14 to celebrate homecoming at Setzler Field.
Catawba (3-2, 1-1) entered the game ranked 20th in the country, but it had a punt and two extra points blocked (one was returned for two Newberry points), missed a short field goal, tossed three interceptions and lost a fumble.
Jamelle Cuthbertson rushed for 108 yards and a TD that put Catawba ahead 8-7 midway through the second quarter. Travis Landrum had three catches for 94 yards, including a 72-yard hookup with QB Howard Williamson.
Linebackers Lakeem Perry (15 tackles) and Julian Samolu (10 tackles) had big games for Catawba’s defense.
Kelton Tindal blocked a punt and caught TD passes of 49 and 94 yards for Newberry (3-2, 2-0).
The 94-yarder tied the school record. Kamaal McIlwain blocked both Catawba PATs.
Brandon Gantt’s TD pass to Tindal put Newberry ahead 16-8. Then a blocked punt at the Catawba 5 set up another quick Newberry score to put the home team in control.
Trailing 33-8 in the fourth quarter, Catawba tried to come back. Antonio Hall scored a TD on a short run.
