Football: Newsome 52, Riverview 6

LITHIA — Will Worth ran for three first-half touchdowns for the Wolves.

Newsome needed only two plays on each of their three touchdown drives to take a 21-0 lead. The offense ran primarily through Worth, who carried eight times for 115 yards during the first half.

"Right now, he's our best player," Newsome coach Ken Hiscock said. "He stepped up to the challenge."

Newsome's usual workhorse, Keller Powers, went without any carries during the first half. But he made the most of his first touch of the game, a 48-yarder on the first play of the second half to make it 31-0.

Riverview responded with an 80-yard touchdown drive that took more than nine minutes off the clock and was capped by a 1-yard run by Chase Freeman. Newsome answered right back, however, on a 93-yard kickoff return by Clint Carnell to make it 38-6.

"We executed the game plan," Hiscock said. "And the kids played outstanding."
