Football: Jesuit 45, Spoto 0

RIVERVIEW — What started as a contest between Jesuit and Spoto became the Kevin Newman show. The Tigers' sophomore running back battled inside and broke into the open field often, carrying 21 times for 265 yards and four touchdowns en route to a 45-0 blowout.

Newman broke through for his first touchdown, a 7-yard sprint, early in the first quarter before a 40-minute lightning delay. When play resumed, he took his next carry 66 yards for a TD and a 14-0 lead. Junior fullback Ryan Black added a 5-yard touchdown plunge, and Newman vaulted in from the 1 for his third score to put Jesuit ahead 31-0 at halftime.

The Tigers harassed the Spartans' offensive line all night. Spoto junior quarterback Aaron Haynes was 8-of-24 passing and took vicious hits down the stretch.
