(WVUE) -

Last week, James Poche's five rushing touchdowns gave Newman a comfortable win over McMain. Tonight, Poche ran wild again (2 rushing TD's), but quarterback Martin Butcher doubled up his backfield mate with four touchdown passes in a 42-0 win over Thomas Jefferson.

Butcher finished 13-of-16 for 224 yards. Storey Charbonnet hauled in two touchdown receptions, Jarmone Sutherland and Murray Calhoun split the other two.

The victory improves Newman's record to 2-0. Next week, the Greenies host East Jefferson.
