TAMPA — Despite a sloppy first half, Hillsborough sealed a victory over Chamberlain with two second-half touchdowns by running back Tim Randolph.
Coming off of an exhausting game against Plant last week, the Terriers were visibly sluggish in the first half as they spent the majority of it on defense.
"This was a pivotal game for us this season," coach Earl Garcia said. "We're still not where we need to be to play a full game fitness wise but we're getting there. I think the boys' tanks were empty after last week because we didn't play with much enthusiasm in the first half. Chamberlain was well prepared for us. They're our second biggest rival so this is a big win for us."
Randolph followed a 61-yard dash at the end of the third with an 8-yard touchdown early in the fourth after a Hillsborough interception.
