Football: Newsome 57, Leto 8

TAMPA — Leto scored its first points of the season, but the Falcons still fell way short of picking up their first win as Newsome rolled 57-8 Friday night.

The Wolves were spectacular on the ground, rolling up 342 yards rushing and six touchdowns. Conner Powers led the way with 167 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 9.8 yards a carry.

Though Newsome only threw seven times, completing three passes, the Wolves controlled the clock.

Leto's lone score came on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Robinson to David McPherson.

Special teams played a big part in Newsome's victory. Jorge Thompson ran back a 61-yard punt return for a touchdown. And Royce Easley had a 75-yard kickoff return.
