Wortham downs Hillsboro JV, 16-6

Wortham —

Behind 113 total yards of offense and two touchdown passes from Witty Busby, the Wortham Bulldogs got by a stingy Class 3A Hillsboro JV team to move to 1-0 on the season.

Wortham was originally scheduled to open with Texas Wind, which canceled earlier this week.

The Bulldogs scored first with 5:58 left in the first quarter when Busby tossed an 8-yard strike to Kenneth Freeman on a fade route in the end zone. After a Daniel Trantham run for two, the Bulldogs were up 8-0. The Wortham defense would shut down the Hillsboro offense for the rest of the half. The offenses put the ball on the turf a combined five times in the first half.

After the half, the Eagles came out and put the clamps on the Bulldogs. The Eagles marched down the field on a 10-play drive capped off by a 29-yard touchdown reception by Harrison Bailey from quarterback Fisher Woodard. The point after kick was blocked by Freeman, leaving the Bulldogs up by a score of 8-6. 

With 5:33 left in the game, Wortham got what ultimately decided the contest with a blocked 33-yard field goal by Steven Hutson. After a return for 15-yards to the Bulldogs own 40, Busby led the Bulldog offense on the game winning drive and tossed a 15-yard touchdown to Rudy Miller with just 2:54 left in the game. A Zach Jones two-point conversion pass to Jordan Lansford lifted Wortham to a 16-6 lead that they would not give up.

  • LeBron James returns to Cleveland

     LeBron James' latest decision is in: He's returning to Cleveland.Ending a saga that had the NBA virtually at a standstill while he made up his mind, James told Sports Illustrated for a story published Friday that he's decided to go home. His decision reverses the move he made when he left the Cavaliers for Miami four years ago, and a twist that would have seemed unfathomable after the venomous fallout when he joined the Heat.
