Football: Newsome 31, Chamberlain 28

TAMPA — In a tug of war with the lead all game, Newsome got a stop late to sneak out of Chamberlain with a victory.

"We got the momentum to go our way when we needed a stop late," Newsome coach Ken Hiscock said. "We were better disciplined on defense, but Chamberlain played with a lot of heart."

Chamberlain (1-4) showed a lot of improvement after getting beaten 22-12 by Tampa Bay Tech last week, most notably from Xavier Johnson. He rushed for 211 yards with a pair of scores and even threw a 19-yard touchdown.

Quarterback Will Worth did not have as many yards for Newsome (2-3) but was just as important to his team. He ran for three short scores and threw for another.

"He is the man with that 'it' factor for us," Hiscock said. "He leads the team and had a great game."
