Football: Hillsborough 38, Middleton 0

TAMPA — It took Hillsborough's offense a little time to get in gear Saturday, but the defense kept Middleton in check in a 38-0 win.

"Middleton has really improved and we escaped the game with no major injuries," coach Earl Garcia said. "Next week we will face a tough opponent over on the East coast (Cocoa). We have a chance to be really good."

In the first quarter, Nigel Harris scored on a 8-yard run to put the Terriers up early. In the second quarter Jeremiah Green caught passes — both for touchdown passes of 81 and 21 yards to push the score to 21-0.

In the third the Terriers wasted no time jumping all over Middleton. Harris hit a gaping hole and went the distance for 73 yards, finishing with 103 on five carries. Later in the quarter he added a 9-yard score.
