Fullback Toby Pascoe dazzled with a beautiful move down the blind side, crossing in the corner to set the tone for an action-packed game.

Despite Burnham on Sea’s efforts, Newton answered with penalties and well-executed plays. A standout moment came when Reuben Brinkley’s try extended our lead, marking a confident 13-22 advantage at halftime.
