Football: Hillsborough 43, Strawberry Crest 0

TAMPA — Hillsborough racked up its first district win Friday night by rattling off one big play after another against Strawberry Crest in a 43-0 rout.

The Terriers would have scored in the opening seconds were it not for a penalty on Anthony Brown's 92-yard return. The score could have been even more tilted but a 72-yard touchdown pass to Brown was called back for a personal foul.

"We're coming up on one of the toughest stints in our schedule and we can't be giving touchdowns away," Terriers coach Earl Garcia said. "Overall, this is a victory where we did what we were supposed to do but we've still got some things to tighten up."

Brown and Jeremiah Green combined for 234 total yards and five touchdowns, all on plays of 30 yards or longer.
