Football: Hillsborough 37, Newsome 23

TAMPA — Hillsborough coaches talked about adjustments at halftime. After that, the Terriers' offensive line work spoke volumes.

Nigel Harris rushed for 103 yards and two touchdowns in the final two quarters, including the clinching 43-yarder with 2:12 left.

"We made sure we not only did the correct blocking, but we stayed on the blocks," said Harris, who ran for minus-5 yards on two first-half carries as the Terriers trailed 16-15. "(The offensive line) showed up, got confidence."

Ten of the Terriers' 24 carries after halftime gained at least 11 yards as they picked up 192. (They had 70 in the first half.)

Newsome quarterback Will Worth scored his second touchdown on a 1-yard plunge with 2:44 left to make it 30-23. Hillsborough recovered the onside kick, and Harris added his final touchdown.
