Football: Newsome 55, Bloomingdale 16

VALRICO — Will Worth accounted for three touchdowns for Newsome in a 55-16 triumph Thursday over Bloomingdale.

In the first half, Worth, a junior quarterback, ran for two touchdowns and connected on a 24-yard strike to Aaron West to stake Newsome to a 28-10 lead heading into halftime.

Worth rushed 29 times for 226 yards and accounted for 335 yards of total offense.

"He's a load to bring down, and a great character kid," Newsome coach Ken Hiscock said of Worth. "We look to him for guidance, and he leads us in the right way."

Newsome (6-4) dominated the game offensively and showed no signs of a letdown after last week's upset victory over Plant City. Although Bloomingdale (4-6) opened the scoring on Cody Crouse's 7-yard touchdown pass, Newsome went on a 34-3 run to put the game out of reach.

Clint Carnell and Keller Powers each had two rushing touchdowns for the Wolves, while John Hendricks capped the scoring with a 34-yard touchdown run with 43 seconds left in the game.
