NEWTON — The Newton Knights are proving to be a thorn in the side of the McPherson Senior American Legion.

The Knights, who knocked off Post 24 last weekend in the Hooper Showcase Summer Tournament, ran their record to 3-0 against McPherson on Friday with a sweep of a doubleheader at Klein-Scott Field. The Knights basically are the Newton team that went to the Class 5A State Tournament this spring.

McPherson lost the first game 2-1 and the second game 13-5 in six innings. The sweep leaves Post 24 at 11-10 on the year, while Newton is 15-4.

No other details are available at post time.
