VALRICO — Newsome held off a strong effort from Bloomingdale.

The Wolves (4-2, 2-0), who had 400 yards of offense, were not able to put away the Bulls (0-7, 0-3) until late in the fourth quarter. Down 21-17, Bulls running back Derrick Johnson fumbled on a punt return. On the ensuing drive, the Wolves' Vincent Pennington ran 50 yards to make it 28-17.

A blocked punt paved the way for the Wolves' first score, a 2-yard run by Keller Powers, who had three touchdowns.

The Bulls tied it on a 49-yard run by Johnson. After the Wolves scored 14 straight to end the half up 21-7, the Bulls scored on a 3-yard run by Chris Herald to make it 21-14 in the third quarter. The Bulls cut the lead to 21-17 on a 41-yard field goal by Matt Firestine before the Wolves pulled away.
