Football: King 14, Wharton 6

TAMPA — Greg Windham ran for a touchdown and threw for one in the fourth quarter to lead the Lions' comeback victory.

Wharton dominated the opening half but had little to show for it. Chase Litton led two deep drives that ended with field goals by Chris Kinney. (Litton left the game on a stretcher late after sustaining a neck injury. His status is unknown.)

King scored late in the half when Kinney, also the punter, fielded a low snap in the end zone on the ground, resulting in a safety.

The Lions opened the fourth quarter with a 97-yard touchdown run by Windham, giving them their first lead. Then with 4:25 left, Windham threw a 31-yard touchdown to tight end Kim Jackson.

"We were just determined to get in the end zone that one last time," said Windham, who finished with 133 yards rushing and 97 passing. "We were confident we could come back and win."
