Football: Hillsborough 28, King 0

TAMPA — Hillsborough showed it could play smashmouth football at will Friday night against King.

Its defense pitched a shutout and its offensive line dominated.

That led to a painless 28-0 victory at home. And it gave the Terriers a chance to rest some of their starters and play some key freshmen.

"After not playing very well last week it was nice to come out and turn it around tonight," Hillsborough coach Earl Garcia said. "We have a young offensive line who blocked great and protected the pocket. And it's not very often that you can shut out (King quarterback) Greg Windham. I'm proud of our defense."

The Terriers (7-2, 5-2) came out quickly and were breaking off tons of yards on the ground. Hillsborough running back Anthony Brown was carving his way through the defense and would have outrageous statistics had Garcia not sat him in the second half. Even so, Brown averaged 12 yards and totaled 132 yards.

Windham and the pass-oriented King (3-5, 2-3) offense had a couple of drives into Hillsborough territory, but could not get into the red zone before committing turnovers or being shut down.
