LUTZ — Alonso turned two botched punts into touchdowns to win.

Coming off a 41-14 loss to Jefferson, the Ravens allowed an opening-drive touchdown to Steinbrenner, which gained just 10 yards in losing 25-10 to Plant City. Alonso then buckled down, giving up only 40 yards the rest of the game.

Steinbrenner’s defense was equally strong until the first bad punt snap put the ball on its 25 late in the first half. Chris Oladokun capped the short drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Zantavius Shower.

“We capitalized well,” Ravens coach Brian Emanuel said. “This was one of those games where you try to just get out of town with the win.”

Late in the third, another snap missed punter TJ Broecker, setting up the Ravens at the Warriors 5. Ish Witter ran it in from 6 yards.

“We’ve got an excellent team,” said Witter, who ran for 126 yards. “We’ve just got to minimize the mistakes.”
