A win certainly quenches the thirst left standing after last week’s loss to Mill Valley.

However, Derby now will take a trip back to the drawing boards after holding off Newton, 43-31, in a surprisingly tough trip to Fischer Field on Friday night.

Sophomore running back Dylan Edwards and senior quarterback Lem Wash had three touchdowns apiece. That helped hold off two touchdown passes from Newton quarterback Ben Schmidt.
