Newton-Conover (5-6 2-5) capped a frustrating season by posting a 50-plus point performance Friday.
It didn't come without a challenge from West Caldwell (0-11, 0-8), which was last winless in 2008 and has struggled through seven straight losing seasons.
Big plays and big defense helped lift Bandys past Bunker Hill, 35-7, on Friday as the Trojans secured fourth place in the Catawba Valley Athletic Conference to conclude the season.
"I am happy with a win," Bandys coach Randy Lowman said, adding the victory helps avenge the Trojans' 49-20 loss to Bunker Hill last year. "They got us so fooled last year, we couldn't even play with them. Our defense played great tonight ... our guys played hard."
