MIAMI, Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Chad Henne threw for 194 yards while Miami was dominating the first half Friday on its way to a 20-10 Dolphins exhibition victory over Carolina.

Henne completed 15-of-24 passes and helped the Dolphins to a 17-0 lead through two quarters.

Lex Hilliard and Daniel Thomas scored on short runs in the first half and Dan Carpenter tacked on a 39-yard field goal in the second quarter. Carpenter also had a 44-yarder in the third to give Miami a 20-0 cushion heading into the final 15 minutes.

The lone Carolina touchdown came on a 4-yard run by Tyrell Sutton midway through the fourth period.

Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, the No. 1 pick in this year's draft, started the game and completed 7-of-14 passes for 66 yards without an interception. He also ran the ball four times for 18 yards.

Miami has opened the pre-season at 2-0. Carolina is 1-1.
