Football: Newsome 42, Riverview 6

RIVERVIEW — Quarterback Will Worth rushed for four touchdowns as Newsome (4-4, 3-1) rolled Riverview (2-6, 0-3) 42-6 on Friday night.

"It's not a one-man show," Newsome coach Kenneth Hiscock said of Worth. "But we do expect great things from him and he gave them to us tonight."

Turnovers turned the game into a rout quickly, as Newsome jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead. That lead was extended to 35 points when Zac Slater took the second half's opening kickoff the distance.

Riverview avoided the shutout on a last-play touchdown. The Sharks turned the ball over five times and didn't gain a first down until midway through the second quarter.

Worth finished with 89 passing yards and 94 yards on the ground.
