Armwood 40, Plant City 14
Newsome 42, Durant 13
Spring game-breakers: Plant City drove 57 yards downfield in six plays to score on its first possession. But after a punt on its first possession, Armwood scored on each of its remaining five with Josh Grady passing for 146 yards, passing for two touchdowns (to Alvin Bailey and A.J. King) and running for another while Matt Jones had two scoring runs. …In an extreme case of the jitters, quarterback Bennie Coney accounted for five of the Raiders' eight fumbles. Coney did look good at times, passing for 124 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown to Lamarlin Wiggins. …The Wolves scored on their first play from scrimmage with Royce Easley racing down the right sideline on a 69-yard reverse. The Cougars needed one more play than that to reach the end zone as Jarvis Scott scampered 69 yards on a pitchout. …Conner Powers capped a more traditional five-play, 80-yard drive with a 5-yard run for Newsome's go-ahead touchdown. …Newsome quarterback Will Worth, a freshman and played mostly linebacker last fall, showed maturity beyond his years by repeatedly guiding his team downfield. He ran for three touchdowns out of the Wing-T.
Audible 1: "All the little things, as far as fundamentals and execution, I felt pretty good about. We came out healthy, so I'm pretty happy." — Armwood coach Sean Callahan
Audible 2: "(Will Worth is) just one of them playmakers. He started last year at linebacker because we had Matt Klenke. We knew that he was going to be the guy who was going to come in and fill that quarterback position." — Newsome coach Ken Hiscock
