Preseason football: Bradenton Southeast 14, Hillsborough 12

TAMPA — Although Hillsborough lost 14-12 to Bradenton Southeast on Friday night, coach Earl Garcia still had plenty of reason to smile afterward.

The Terriers did some positive things on both sides of the ball and on special teams. As for the big picture, no player left injured.

"We did do some good things and got better (Friday night), and we got to play all 50 guys," Garcia said. "But most importantly, no one got hurt."

The game featured a lot of safe pass plays and basic run sets.

But with a big season opener looming at Jefferson next week, Garcia was by no means going to open up his playbook.

"No way," he said. "We didn't run much; we were pretty vanilla. But our ones did play very well in the first half."

The Terriers didn't put much offense on tape Friday, but they did unleash one potential secret weapon in kicker Mattias Ciabatti.

He made field goals of 44 and 48 yards on a wet field.
