Football: Hillsborough 29, Chamberlain 7

TAMPA — Doing basically prep work for its playoff opener next week against Osceola, Hillsborough rolled up 300-plus yards of offense and played solid defense. It won despite almost 100 yards of penalties and three touchdowns called back due to them.

Dwayne Lawson went 11-of-18 for 169 yards and a touchdown as the Terriers ended the regular season on a three-game winning streak.

Jeremiah Green opened the scoring for Hillsborough, catching a 58-yard pass from Lawson in the first quarter. Green later scored on a 49-yard punt return, and Robert Wilson scored on a 12-yard run.

Chamberlain's top rusher, Xavier Johnson, left in the first quarter with an ankle injury. Its other top threat, Dakarai Highsmith, left in the third with an undisclosed injury and was taken by ambulance to an area hospital. His condition was not known.
