Hillsborough 68, Gaither 0

TAMPA — Antonio Chow rushed for 92 yards in Hillsborough's 41-point first half and quarterback Taurean Austin threw for 179 yards total in a shutout of host Gaither.

Hillsborough scored on all but three offensive possessions in the game.

Austin scored from 1 yard out on a sneak in the opening minutes. On the first play of Gaither's ensuing possession, the Cowboys muffed the snap and the Terriers' Arthur Johnson picked it up and scored. Later in the half, the Terriers blocked a punt, setting up Jamie Knott's 1-yard TD run, his first of two scores in the game.

Charles Lovett scored on a 51-yard pass from Austin in the second quarter and finished with 93 receiving yards.

Hillsborough backup quarterback Ryan Bird got in on the action, throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Duval in the third quarter.
