Football: Hillsborough 65, Leto 0

TAMPA — Dwayne Lawson threw for 250 yards and four first-half touchdowns to lead Hillsborough to a 65-0 victory over Leto.

Lawson connected on a 43-yard touchdown to Jeremiah Green on the second play of the game to give the Terriers an 8-0 lead.

"Matt (Leto coach Matt Kitchie) and I spoke beforehand," Hillsborough coach Earl Garcia said, "and our plan was to come in and throw the football in the first half. We needed to work on some things in the passing game and we did pretty well."

On the ground, Trevor Steinke, Nick Smith, and Lilrobert Wilson added touchdown runs for the Terriers, while Green and Curtis Thomas both had two receiving touchdowns to help Hillsborough build a 51-0 halftime edge.
